I have a 46" Google Sony TV. I hear crackling and hissing when playing video through HDMI from website (WWII documentary). Can't post the link because I don't have enough posts. I have a Dell Studio laptop. In addition, I had issues with one DVD (Casablanca) where every couple of minutes the audio would go out for a few seconds. I thought it was the DVD but I think it is actually either the TV or my laptop I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Intel High Definition Audio HDMI driver and the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC to no avail. This problem occurs when I try to play videos from the website. Help is greatly appreciated. Update: As I was typing this message, I went into the Intel High Definition Audio HDMI driver and altered the properties. Under the Advanced tab I changed the Default Format to 24 bit, 48,000 Hz from 16 bit, 48,000 Hz. It appears that this helped but I still hear the popping sound.
