Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a ps3, i brought a HDMI cable, connected it, it worked fine for a bout 30 seconds, i have a great picture but the sound is distorted and cracking up, please advise
I had this problem and managed to solve it by starting the affected games, then switching to my other HDMI channel and then back to the PS3 HDMI channel by which time the game has loaded and has perfect sound

Is it only in Games or Movies?
Try checking the cables. (obvious I know but it must be said).
On the XMB (Cross Media Bar), go to settings on the left. Scroll down to "Sound Settings"
Choose "Audio Output Settings", then "HDMI", then "Auto"
If that doesn't fix it then choose manual and the most basic outputs first;
-Linear PCM 2ch. 44.1KHz
-Linear PCM 2ch. 48KHz
Depending on your surround sound setup your could get away with other options as well. Fist determine if your setup is 5.1 or 7.1, DTS or Dolby Digital. Then start with the lower KHz settings and work your way up.
