• k, so i am getting the crackle from my speakers. im connected through my hdmi cable . im not sure what im doing wrong . i have turned off the digital 5.1 thus getting no sound. im very frustrated. Please help
  • It may be the HDMI cable that is causing the crackle if you have gone with one of the extremely cheap versions. If your audio system has a jack for optical cable I would suggest trting that for your audio and leave the HDMI for the video.
