I recently picked up a Panther Canyon NUC (NUC11PAKi5, i5-1135g7, etc). I had intended to use the device with my TV for HTPC and gaming purposes but I am having some very weird problems with the HDMI connection and audio. I've got a Sony Bravia X900F TV connected to a Sony HT-X9000F soundbar via HDMI+ARC. Every other device I've used with this setup has worked perfectly, PS4/PS5/Switch, multiple PC's (Nvidia + AMD), multiple MacBook pro's, etc. When I plug my NUC in via HDMI to the TV, no audio comes out of the soundbar. More interestingly, if the NUC is plugged in, even if I change inputs or swap to a free-to-air channel, there will still be no sound coming out of the soundbar. I have to remove the NUC, reset the TV, soundbar, etc to make everything work normally again. I find it extremely odd that just having the NUC plugged into the TV via HDMI and powered on, ruins the behaviour of the setup for other inputs. I have tried: Changing HDMI cables. Changing HDMI ports on the TV. Installing the latest video drivers (I'm using win10). Updated BIOS. Played with HDMI-CEC settings on the NUC. Plugging the NUC into the soundbar directly and letting the video pass-through to the TV. Video works, audio doesn't work. The only thing that 'mostly' fixes the problem, is using a USB-C hub like this. However, this has 2 drawbacks: Limited to 1080p/60 or 4k/30. Imperfect connection/audio behaviour. It's as if the TV isn't always 'listening' for sound signal, if I play a short-duration sound, the TV won't play it, but if I play some music, after 1-2 seconds the audio will kick in on the TV, and the TV's information banner pops up with the current channel/connection/resolution/display information (as if someone new was plugged in). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
