I’m stumped on this one.
If I play my MP3’s on my Windows 7 PC or iPod, they sound great.
If I play my MP3’s with the WDTV Live, there is static/noise you can hear whenever the music gets louder. It doesn’t matter what volume I have my speakers set to, the static/noise occurs during specific periods when a song gets louder. If I play the songs on my Windows 7 PC via the WDTV Live, the static/nosie is not there.
I’ve tried swapping HDMI cables, optical cables, etc. Regardless of what I have changed, the static/noise is still there.
I had this problem with playing back AVCHD files but if I switched the audio settings to Digital the noise disappeared. I tried that during the MP3 playback but it did not work.
I sorta feel like this thing is just a $100 paper weight since the MP3 playback has so much static/noise/crackling.
