[mythtv-users] Sound card issue

I've a on-board audiocard with both coax and optical out. I've never got 
it to work very well.

The card plays perfectly well using analog out, except from the audio 

The audio works fine for about 5-10 minutes when using digital out. 
After 5-10 minutes the sound disapears for some seconds and comes back 
again. This behavior continues until the computer is rebooted. I started 
to think that this was driver related. I have a spare Windows disk for 
this computer as well and I decided to try if it worked better in 
Windows. I have the same problem in Windows so that eliminates the 
driver theory.
Could this really be hardware related? It doesn't matter if I use coax 
or optical in either operating system.
I think that it is a bit odd to think that it should be hardware related 
since it always works for about 5-10 minutes an then won't work again 
until rebooted. The reboot part somewhat directs me to hardware but why 
5-10 minutes. It would last for seconds if it were some kind of buffer 


PS. Please tell me if anyone knows were I can buy a Turlte Beach 
Catalina card in Sweden. Rplace replace replace.... =o)
