Jim and I continued this conversation through email, so I thought I’d post an update.
After much testing and some dead ends, we narrowed down the audio cutoff issue to the Salkstream putting its video output via HDMI into a sleep or screensaver mode. I learned that HDMI audio is always carried in the video signal, so when video stops, so does audio.
Jim was able to find a simple command code that prevents the Salkstream’s video signal from going into screensaver/sleep mode. It was simple to log into the Salkstream and enter the command.
I spent about an 1.5 hours this evening listening to multichannel music with no interruptions....woo hoo!
Many thanks to Jim for sticking with me on this to find a resolution even though I’m using the Salkstream in a non-standard way.
