I have a problem with my AV Receivers. When I play with HDMI or S/PDIF the first half second of the first song in the playback queue is lost. It seems synchronization problems.
Searching, I found that JRiver has the next option:
Play silence at startup for hardware synchronization
Some hardware requires a lead time from when a signal is delivered to when sound is produced. This option allows outputting leading silence so no actual sound is lost in these cases. Note that this option is only in effect in two cases - at the first playback after the program starts, and between tracks with different sample rates. This silence will not be played between tracks with the same sample rate.
Is there something similar in Mopidy?
