Maybe it's even the same issue in this thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=156785
Right, good point, if I wasn't using the audio over the HDMI stream, I might be able to get away with something like that but I do need the HDMI audio. So even if there were no clicks, I'd still need something more than that.
It is interesting that the description in the other thread is similar, but that seems to be a no video at all issue. Still, since the problem seems to have started in about the same version, it may well be a related issue. And that may help if it results in some driver changes but the workarounds may be different so I think it is worth keeping this thread separate for now.
Also, I forgot to post my log. It's attached to this reply.
