I have had various issues with pulse audio. I have a simple setup of just having headphones and sometimes hdmi video & sound. Some of the issues are;
- HMDI sound doesn't work on the tele.
- Audio stops working all together.
The only way to fix this seems to be deleting all .config/pulse folder and rebooting my system.
I really love manjaro, I just hope this issue could be sorted out by the devs without it being a persistent thing. I have used pulse audio before in Mint but din't run into these issues.
