I use both HDMI audio and the analog headphone jack. I have a home automation app set to use the analog audio outputs, to computer speakers, so I can hear the lady's voice even if the TV and Receiver are off. Every once in a while, 1 of two things happen. Either my analog output disappears, or my HDMI audio gets choppy...almost slo-mo like even though the video plays in full speed and the audio keeps up. It's like it's playing 1/2 of the audio segments, at 1/2 speed, so that's why it stays in sync w/ the video. I'm not certain these two things happen exclusively. When I notice one, I reboot. I will test next time to see if both problems exist at the same time. I also have a Xbox Kinect camera/microphone connected to the NGC-1 (for the microphone only), and an IR receiver for my remote (VRC-1100 [Vista MCE Remote Control]) connected via USB...if that matters any. I'm on the latest v1.3 bios and I believe also the latest SSD firmware. Has anyone experienced anything like this or have any ideas where to start looking for a cause? Thanks!
