Hi, I'm having a problem that occurs on both my iMac and MBP, so I know it isn't computer specific. When I'm watching something encoded in 5.1 in VLC, I change the output in the Audio menu (Audio -> Auto Device -> Encoded Output). Whenever I quit out of VLC, none of the system sounds work anymore. That means iChat, Mail, Youtube in Safari, emptying trash sound, etc. I can't get these sounds to come back until I restart the computer. Does anyone know how to solve this issue or is it just something we have to live with for 5.1 encoded output?
