Geforce GTX 970 using HDMI was just fine with windows 7.
I upgrade to windows 10 and audio would cycle the sound on and off making a loud poping sound that would be simliar to sound initalizing, but would do this every 1 - 2 mins…making it impossible to enjoy being on the computer, I have a Yamaha receiver and it would show the signal literally turning on and off , most likely to some silly “power saving non-since”. I only found a way to disable that using a registry hack.
I am giving Linux mint 19.3 a shot, and the 3 drivers it has on it to use from Nvidia all 3 do that “popping sound” every minute. I can’t stand to hear that and makes me wonder if any of this ever gets tested, who could live with that?
Well I looked at nvidia control panel in linux mint and I don’t see anything that would make me think you could turn of “power-saving” or whatever they want to call it.
Does anyone have an idea how to force the audio to stay on and never cycle on and off to “save power”?
