Re: [vfio-users] HDMI audio distortion and crackle randomly

I doubt this is your issue, but if I reply it could help someone else who is searching about the same problem

I have a very modern Haswell machine that I set up to run KVM, with VGA passthrough for a very modern video card (GTX 970).  Since I didn’t care about the performance of the host video, I had installed an ancient PCI card for this purpose (I mean super ancient, like a Matrox Millenium or something like that).  With this setup, the audio in my Windows VM stuttered and lagged very badly.

As soon as I replaced the host video card, the problem went away.

So the takeaway is, just because your modern machine has a legacy (non-PCIe) slot, doesn’t mean you should use it. :-)
