Here are my notes:
1. None of the MacMini system preferences nor Audio MIDI settings helped.
2. Setting the System > Audio Output > Audio Output to HDMI helped partially. It used to be on Analog.
By partially I mean that if I turn off the TV and turn it back on while leaving the MacMini and XBMC running, it would revert back to the built-in output. With the Audio Output set to HDMI, turning off the TV and back on would keep the audio output coming through my TV. So that was good.
However, if I suspended XBMC, turned off the TV, then resumed my MacMini & XBMC followed by turning on my TV, there was no longer any audio output whereas before it would default to the Built-in output.
3. If the audio output isn't working, going into the System > Audio Output > Audio Output Device and toggling that off of HDMI and then back to it, resets the audio device and has it working again without needing to relaunch XBMC.
It's possible it's something to do with my hardware setup, however running OSX the sound always comes through the TV regardless of the order in which I turn on the devices. Either way, this isn't a huge deal, but if anyone else has any suggestions I'm open to trying them.
My problem is the exact same - mac mini (mid 2011) w/ XBMC 12.2, 10.8.4, Samsung TV, Sonos PlayBar. The mini is connected to the TV through HDMI, which is then connected to the PlayBar through optical cable. I use a Harmony Ultimate remote.
Every time I start my XBMC activity sound would be gone - I can get it back by toggling Audio configuration or Speaker setup. So far nothing I do has resolved the osund issue...

Would this be xbmc-20130913-25bf01a-master-i386.dmg? Or Gotham-alpha7? Sorry if this seems dense, I'm not used to using nightly builds on any software... How stable are these builds?
