Raspberry PI > audio over HDMI crackling - peer1979 - 02-10-2014

Since i've bought my Raspberry PI i've got issues with playing audio (mp3 / flac) over HDMI. I'm using Openelec 3.2.4.

Problem
When i listen to music i can hear i crackle ( = produce a strange noise). It starts at random: mostly after a few songs and sometimes it can take up to an hour or so before it starts. It seems to me it is a sync issue with my Philips 40pfl7007. It can happen everywhere in a song and is annoying!

Perhaps of interest: My Pi is far from stable. Every now and then it locks up and i have to reset it. If i'm lucky it reboots, if not i have to reinstall it.

I've tried
Three HDMI (fast speed) cables, same result.
Play audio over analogue output, no crackling.
Play audio from PC over HDMI to TV, no crackling.

audio settings
audio output: hdmi
speaker configuration: 2.0

Hi everybody,

I have the same problem : I have a slight crackling or fuzzing sound every now and again, especially on loud action scenes ...
Can someone help me with this ?

Thanks

I've solved my problem, my philips tv (40pfl7007) was the issue! Currently i own a samsung 2013 model, which did not crackle at all in the last couple of days. Finally i can enjoy my music Smile

So if you have a philips 40pfl7007 (perhaps other models as well?), you are not nuts, it's the tv! Beside the crappy firmware and annoying bugs, it also manages to screw up hdmi audio sync. Thank you Philips :angry:
