[mythtv-users] Slightly OT - audio switching to dummy

I have all my devices connected to my UHD 4K TV through a HDMI 2.0
switch. On my Xubuntu 20.04 PC I run a lot of media applications
One problem I have only on this system is losing audio devices when I
switch the TV away from the PC and later switching it back.
I used to have a Video problem when switching but that seems to be solved.
However every time I switch back, audio is using device 'dummy'. I can
fix it by opening the mixer by clicking on the speaker/volume icon on
the top panel bar, and looking at all the devices under Configuration.
They are all marked unavailable, but if I click on the right one and
wait 3 seconds it will turn available and I can selected it. The audio
will now work.
Is there a way in *ubuntu to force the audio to reset on a HDMI
connection event the same way that video does?
BTW I'm using an Nvidia GT1030 card and it connected to the switch via HDMI.
