Default Uniform distortion in surround speakers

Hello everyone, new to the forum, hoping for some help.

I've recently started to hear a static/ticking sound periodically from my FR/L and RR/L speakers. I can rewind the program and recreate the same sounds at the same time.

The sound comes from all four speakers and I've rotated the speaker positions and have the same result.

I am thinking this may be a faulty HDMI cable from the source to my receiver or an actual receiver issue.

Tips or suggestions?

Thank you.

Does this happen with all sources or just one? If you move the source device to a different input, does the problem still recur? If you use an optical or coax connection instead of HDMI, what happens?

Believe it is only happening with one source (cable box) and am going to attempt to recreate the sound with different sources and different inputs.

I stopped at a local 'sound store' and they seem to believe it is a known problem with my cable provider that their boxes will lose signal on poor quality channels resulting in the sound. Will attempt to confirm that by trying the above recommendations.

Thanks!

BIslander has the idea. Rule out scource. I would try it against the dvd/bd and another surround scource if possible. Even with no input on, try the amp on, with a surround option on dry. If you hear no noise that way, your amp is ok.
