    The audio did return after running the first code but the second code gave this result:

    Here's a debug log I uploaded earlier today. I started Kodi by waking my Intel NUC from Suspend and then enabled debug logging. There was NO audio. If I were to reboot the NUC, the audio would return. I did not reboot for the log below.

    Thanks but that's just a little over my head. It looks like toggling to 50 and back to 60 in a script but that's about all I get out of your post. I would need basic instructions to attempt something like that. One thing that comes to mind is the pop-up message I got when changing the refresh rate manually the other night - it asked if I wanted to save the changes. If this script works, then what would happen to the pop-up question ?

    After a week dealing with this issue, I'm pretty sure my problem is with the NUC's resume from suspend and not a timing issue at all. I tried reaching out to Intel Tech Support but they shut me down saying my NUC is now obsolete and there is no further support. I wonder if the HDMI handshake waking from suspend is the same as a power on or reboot. I cannot power my NUC on from a full power down unless I press the NUC's power button. There is no remote control support for power on from this old NUC.


    I'm now shopping for NUC8i3BEK (2018 model) to replace my much older 2013 i5 NUC. I'll gain 4K support and the no sound issue should be fixed.

    I will try turning on the TV and Receiver and then the NUC last. If that fixes the issue, I will try adding a 1 to 3 second delay to the NUC resuming from suspend using my Harmony 650 remote. Thanks for the suggestion. I will update this thread.


    By the way, I tried both my Intel NUC's and they both have this same exact issue with my new Yamaha Receiver.

    Update: I found a work-around tonight. If I start my system in TV mode (Verizon Cable Box) and then switch to Kodi which wakes my Intel NUC from suspend, the sound works every time. I'm guessing the TV mode completes the hdmi handshake and EDID, which the new receiver remembers until it's shut off. I can switch between Verizon TV & my NUC and the sound remains, even though the NUC goes into SUSPEND when the TV mode is on.


    My guess is that the NUC's hdmi handshake / EDID signal or whatever is much stronger during POWER ON, than it is resuming from SUSPEND and that the new Yamaha Receiver is more sensitive to this. Maybe if I had chosen another brand of receiver, like Denon, I might not have this problem at all.

    Have you already tried a Custom EDID?

    Actually, I just finished my phone call with Yamaha Tech Support and the guy was very knowledgeable. He said it does sound like an EDID issue. I don't know anything at all about EDID, so any help would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime I am going to try a new HDMI cable, another HDMI input and then as Da Flex suggested - an HDMI Audio Splitter. I'll click the link supplied for Custom EDID above.
