So my audio was working perfectly fine (XBMC, VLC, Flash in Chrome, etc) before the upgrade. Now that I've upgraded, I can still play audio, but it plays for a second or two at a time before cutting out for a second or two (or sometimes even longer). I've removed ~/.pulse ~/.config/pulse, run pulseaudio -k, and tried logging out/in. I've even purged pulseaudio and reinstalled it, but none of it makes a difference. I ran across a post that suggested running commands like so: "env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 vlc file.mp4" but that didn't solve the issue either.
In case it's relevant: I'm attempting to play the audio via my ATI/AMD card's HDMI output, and I'm running Gnome 3.
Has anyone encountered this issue before and found a way to solve it? Is there any additional information that would help track down the cause? I'll be refreshing every few minutes to check for new posts in this thread, so I'll try to be quick in getting you any additional information that's needed.
Thanks in advance for any help/guidance you can offer.
