    NUC is not playing audio on LG-TV with YAMAHA-Soundbar (Win 8.1)

      My NUC-HTPC running Win 8.1 (64bit) connected to an LG television is having audio problems with a Yamaha soundbar.

      The setup is very simple:

       

      NUC

      connected via HDMI to

      LGTV

      connected via optical cable to

      SOUNDBAR


       

      If the NUC is started when the Soundbar is already powered on, then Win 8.1 will not recognize any audio device (red x on the speaker icon).

      However if the NUC is started and the Soundbar is powered on AFTER Win 8.1 has loaded (e.g. KODI/XBMC is up), then the system is able to play sound via the soundbar.


      What's the problem?
