    Audio issue with Intel Mini

    Guys,
    I got my Mini working last night, but i'm having an odd audio issue. When the Mini goes to sleep (either from the P1900 or manually) the audio is routed to the internal speaker until I disconnect the line from the headphone jack and reconnect it. The line is connected (via spliters) to my 3 AMPs which are using the delay line from the P1900 to turn them on. As I mentioned, this happens when I manualy (either the button or the Apple Menu option) sleep the system in which case the AMPs stay powered.

    I watch the Output tab of the Audio Sys Pref and found that before I put it to sleep it has Line Out selected. When it wakes back up, Internal Speaker is selected and there is no line-out option. When I disconnect the line and reconnect it, Internal Speaker is replaced by Line Out and the audio starts working.

    I connected up my Sonica Theater and used it's headphone port for line out, and it seems to be remembering that it is there and stays selected through sleeps.

    Anyone else seen this issue and know how fix it?

    Thanks,
    -dave

    It does it every time for me

    I thought about a quick script, but the Line Out option isn't even there until I removed the line and plugged it back in.

    Thanks for letting me know that it's not just me.

    Wonder how Apple Care will respond to "So, i'm having this strange issue when my Mini goes to sleep in my car..."

    Does it do it when the mini is plugged in in the house or just in the car? Mine has never done that in the house and I hope it doesnt start when I move it to the car that would suck.

    Don't know. I never connected anything up to it inside and I don't think I want to disconnect everything (kind of a pita to hook it all back up again)

    GPS = Google Maps + Printer
    Frontend = FrontRow + FrontRow Remote (at least for now)

    Works for me
