    Are you connecting from a PC with multible audio sources? ie HDMI , stereo etc? It's possible maybe those are switching and causing openPHT to follow suit? I'm guessing you are connecting to a receiver?

    connection is VIA HDMI to a Marantz receiver.

    everything was worked fine with PHT in the past and with openPHT until this week for some reason.

    this used to happen with kodi also connected via HDMI and Onkyo receiver, i just dealt with it but now just trying to fix it.

    i believe it is dweissca answer that is the reason, windows looses the EDID with the amp, and things change setting wise in windows, its one of the reasons i always buy a hdmi detective or similar unit for htpcs running windows that are using amps.

    so found out this happens only when you open Plex before your AVR, if the AVR is on before Plex launches it will be WASAPI: HDMI - AMD HDMI Output.

    check if your receiver has a feature called something along the lines of standby passthrough

    my new onkyo has this, fixes these kinds of issues.
