I purchased and hooked up my ps3 using hdmi cable for sound and video to an LG 42 in tv. noticed a crackling when playing the two games i bought-- call of duty 4 and nascar 09. i switched the input to the tv, no change. switched to the cable i use for my cable box. still crackled. seemed to be when the screen was bright with radio sounds or explosions. i downloaded and played a trailer for resident evil 5 and it did not crackle. i played the blueray disc that came with the console with previews on it and it did not crackle. seemed to be only with game discs. is this a common issue? or should i exchange for a new unit. thanks

Sony PS3 has an Audio issue with HDMI, the only way to cure this bbuilt in defect is to use a seperate audio cable and use the HDMI for the video, I suggest the audio hook be a optical digital cable, if you don't have one they are avail on ebay very cheap, if you don't have the optical input on the TV then use standard RCA audio A and B cables
You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.
I agree with the guy from Sony, the reason for this is the HDMI cable should support the transfer of audio and video over the same cable, if your only getting video over it, the cable could be defective, or its possible that you have another cable in the spot where speakers should go that is over riding the HDMI.
What exactly is the HDMI cable plugged into? Is it direct from TV to PS3? If you have a stereo set lying around that supports HDMI - try having it run through that. Is the TV muted? check if you can get sound while watching normal TV channels. Worst comes to worst, use RCA Plugs remembering that the composite video is (yellow) and stereo audio is (white and red). You don't need to connect the composite video, but connect the stereo audio.
If this did not solve the problem, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you once I can =)
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.
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know
