DisplayPort Audio cuts out during gaming

  1. Hello,

    I have a problem and hope someone might know what`s wrong.

    When I play any pcgame sound stops working after 5 to 10 minutes,
    but only when I use a DP Cable, with HDMI it works fine.
    Movies and music work fine with either cable.

    it`s actually not a huge problem, I just have to change plugs if I want to use my PS4, or buy a headphone cable extension. But maybe someone has the solution on hand.

    Thank You!

    Motherboard: Asus Z87-A with realtek onboard sound
    Graphics: Gforce GTX 770
    Monitor: Asus VN279Q
    OS: Win 8.1

    So do you have to use a displayport cable at all if a HDMI cable works fine?

    Good evening Tmagic650,

    my monitor has one socket for each. As my new PlayStaiton4 only has an HDMI out, I wanted to use the DisplayPort Cable for my PC, so I wouldn`t have to change it all the time. It`s quite fiddely to change the cable at the back of the screen.

    I`ll probably just buy a headphone cable extension, so I can plug my headphones in to the back of my PC.

    As I wrote, the problem is not very tragic, but I thought, I ask, before I spend money for nothing.
