I've been having issues with my Ryzen 5 1600 rigs, one has an R7 260X 2GB GDDR5 XFX card, the other has an XFX RX 570 4GB GDDR5. Both are running the newest Win10, and both are connected via HDMI to the same 40" 4K UHD TV model.

In both cases, I leave my PCs mining on the CPU+GPU, both are slightly overclocked (but stable for mining), and both are set to allow monitor sleep.

But in all drivers since, maybe, around 18.5.1, the HDMI audio, upon monitor wake, doesn't work. Skype says speakers are muted, can't hear skype calling, or any audio at all, can't enable audio at the speaker icon or adjust volume using my keyboard function hotkeys, Device Manager shows no error, clicking on the speaker icon automatically runs Troubleshooter, which then asks which connection to check, and shows all 6-8 HDMI digital connections, onboard audio (not plugged into any speakers), basically ALL of them show "disconnected".

Turning the HDMI TV off, and then back on, doesn't seem to fix it.

Rebooting seems to be the only thing getting the audio going again.

Edit: My laptop running Win7 Pro with an A8-6310 APU, was able to update to 18.9.1, so that driver version must be for APUs too, like 18.5.1 and possibly 18.5.2.
