In the last 3-4 months, I started to have a problem while playing MKV files. Not that I play different files, my smp is mainly for matroska playback . I have to say that I didn’t have this problem in the past.
The problem is that while I play a MKV file (most if not all I have are DTS sound only but it happened with DD too), at random time, I start to hear small stop-start of the sound, maybe a few ms interrupts. This can go on for about 10-20 seconds. Then, all of a sudden, the sound is crippled and you hear something like white noise. If you leave it, it continues like that and no sound from the movie can be heard. If I pause the movie and continue playback, the problem goes away. If I put the time in the file exactly before the time the problem started, it may not happen again. I haven’t heard it more than once per file. Usually, this happens in 2/3 files I have.
The playback is through a USB stick (Corsair Voyager 16GB) using the front USB port.
I uploaded two videos in youtube, one while the problem is there, and once exactly after I paused and continued the playback.Links are below
I can upload media info if required. The frequency of the problem is something that bothers me because it happens too often and I have to be on alert with the remote control in my hands. So far, I haven’t see any particular connection with the files the problem occured and it happens, it happened in both 720 and 1080p, dirreferent bitrates etc
Any help/suggestions is/are appreciated.
