Description Andreas Kloeckner 2016-10-02 18:42:43 UTC
Audio-over-DP works like a charm. Unfortunately, when the screen blanks, the audio stops, which makes the feature somewhat less valuable than it could be. Is there a possibility of keeping the audio connection alive while still blanking the screen?

FWIW, this happens to me with a number of Dell monitors (with a P2715Q the one I'm currently sitting in front of), connected via DP. I'm using Broadwell hardware with the xserver-xorg-modesetting DDX.
