as mentioned above I am using a Boot2Qt image, which in contrast to the Angstrom image does not use pulse but purely ALSA.
When I try to play alarm sounds via the HDMI interface there is a crackling artifact in the first part (<1s) of the playback. This does not occur when I play the sound via the line out.
Previously, I used the Angstrom image with pulse audio and experienced something similar: In that case the first few hundred milliseconds of a file played via HDMI where suppressed which also did not occur via the line out.
Is there an explanation for this? Are there any configuration settings that I could adjust to avoid the artifacts?
Thanks in advance for any hints!
