Crackling sound

I have noticed crackling sound on some hd channels and especially on hd recordings. This is only sine the software update. Is there a fix or solution for this problem. My box is just connected via an hdmi cable to my tv without a surround sound set up.

Thanks

Re: Crackling sound

I've noticed something similar too but hadn't identified it as being down to the update!

 

I also notice it on recordings and non HD material.

 

Should probably do some re-wiring to see if it persists over the SPDIF connection - currently I only use the HDMI.

Re: Crackling sound

I've also noticed this crackling sound on HD channels and also on some iplayer programmes. Again only with HD stuff. When I switch to an SD channel the crackling goes but them returns when the original channel is selected.

 

Because it only happens on the HD channels I doubt it has anything to do with the wiring and is more likely a fault with the HD channels decoding software.

We found this to be quite bad on Brian Cox's programme on BBC HD last night.

Re: Crackling sound

I am seeing this on a lot of programmes - may be limited to HD (live and on demand)

Re: Crackling sound

I have found the 10 second skip back button ( |<< ) solves the sound crackle problem, sometimes I need to press it twice but usually once works just fine. Not ideal but better than listening to that awful sound untill they fix the issue :).

Re: Crackling sound

Had the same issue on Box Office download last night; sounded like a scratchy old LP! Stopped the film and started from the beginning again and it was crystal clear . . . .
