Recently bought an R9 270x card and since I installed it there are 6 HDMI Audio devices in the Playback Devices control panel. The control panel and any other sound-related controls also take ages to load. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and rolling back, but the HDMI Audio devices appear after windows auto-detects the card.

I use my PC to play movies occasionally via HDMI to a 40" Toshiba Regza. Once the Playback Devices Panel is loaded and I can switch sound output to HDMI Audio Device 1 there are no issues with the sound.

I have had no issues with gaming or video playback but it is ridiculous having to wait for 5+ minutes for the panel to load to switch sound output.
