This morning I played a photo slideshow for the first time since updating to 4.1. I noticed the default music was not playing. I switched to the Music menu to play from My Music and again, nothing but a silent, moving progress bar. Yet if I play a movie or TV show from Media (Sapphire) I get glorious 5.1 dolby sound. If I reboot the finder everything comes back for a while but eventually I loose the Music audio again and have to re-reboot.
A little back ground… My TV speakers are worthless so I keep them muted and run all sound through the toslink connection to the home theater amp. The video is delivered via an HDMI cable to the TV (as I write this I realize I haven’t checked to see if the audio is getting through the HDMI to the TV speakers… I’ll get right on that). I was plying with audio settings in various menus to get ripped DVDs to play 5.1 sound. I was successful with that but now I wonder if I did something to cause this annoying situation.
Thoughts and advice will be welcome.
