Audio pop/glitch with new Sony dvd carousel

06-17-2006, 10:20 AM
I notice as strange sound coming from my tv speakers only occaisionally when playing my Sony dvd carousel. It's like a quick loud chirp/pop in the audio that happens somewhat randomly. It can pretty much happen at any point while playing a dvd and after it happens I usually don't hear it again, maybe once more at the most. I don't get this audio burp playing my 942 dvr or xbox360. Seems to only be the dvd player. I have that dvd palyer connected via hdmi and optically into the reciever. My only solution is to kill the tv speakers altogether and just use the surround reciever for dvd audio. Althouth I like to have the tv speakers alone for late night viewing. This problem is very minor, but I thought I'd mention for anyones input.

I dont know if this is gonna fix your problem but I get an occasional pop/crack sound when on the 360 and I traced to the optical itself,seems that the little tab that keeps it firmly in the hole was worn and it would wiggle out a little bit and start popping,if I pushed it back in it would go away.I've since replaced that optical and never had the problem again...worth a shot

Good suggestion I will check that cable tonight during my evening viewing. I also wonder if it may have something to do with the audio setting in the dvd's menu. I have the audio set for optical I believe. Yet I also have an hdmi running to the tv. Could there be conflict? Anyway it's worth a shot. Thanks.
