Hi all, Newbie post here, I'll try and give as much info as I can. I'm at a loss as to what to try next Help!!!! I installed a new Pioneer DVR108 and am having appalling sound quality issues when playing DVDs. The visuals are also choppier than I expected, but fade compared with the sound problems. Loud cracks and "speaker buzz" distortion in the extreme. This problem occured in both PowerDVD and WinDVD so unlikely a software issue. I'm runnning an Athlon 800 with 512 mb ram on a via chipset motherboard with a Geforce 2mx and a Phillips Acoustic edge soundcard. Cables are all connected correctly. DMA mode is enabled. ALL unneccessary programs and processes are off. I've tried lower screen res to no avail.... Does anyone have any idea how I can watch a movie as its supposed to be seen??!!! Please help!!!
