Same problem with a YAMAHA 01V mixer - also takes about five seconds to
recover from a S/PDIF sync loss.

The Archos S/PDIF output signal disappears when junmping between tracks,
when paused, and when stopped. However, when tracks are allowed to play
continuously, the output is uninterrupted, which keeps the sync OK even
between tracks.

It would be excellent if it was possible to output the S/PDIF signal all
the time. Actually, even better would be, if the Archos could sync to
incoming S/PDIF while playing...
