Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When i play games and/or demos theres is a crackling sound periodically especially with explosions or gunfire and on some simple dialogue in the games.However, when i switch to the component cables (red, yellow,white wires)the sound is fine but then the quality of the video is not as good please someone give me a solution! crackle sound on games.i turned on all 2 channels on and all 5.1 channels on and the dolby digital surround button on and the crackle went.this was after changing hdmi leads and 2 days of pissing about and nearly throwing my brand new ps3 out of the window.hope this helps anyone like me who has nearly pulled all my hair out tryimg to figure that very annoying crackle.
I CHANGED THE AUDIO SETTING UNDER HDMI FROM AUTO TO MANUAL AND I REMOVED DOLBY 5.1 FROM SELECTIONS.LEFT THE OTHER 2 SELECTIONS THAT WERE ALREADY SELECTED FROM AUTO SET FOR HDMI I HAVE NOT HAD AUDIO PROBLEMS SINCE.

RUV85 is right, after disabling the dolby 5.2 surround option under the manual hdmi audio settings things are fine. I had crackling in condemned 2 and afro samurai demo, now I dont. Also this was not the unpatched condemned 2 audio problem where it would cut out randomly and crackle.
