I have a rebranded Funai TV (Sylvania) (latest firmware) about year and a half old, and a Sony BDP-S470 Blu-Ray player (latest firmware) some movies play fine others there is an intermitent audio noise, popping sound. The worst offender so far was Star Trek Into Darkness and Drive. Well others such as Hugo & True Grit play fine.
I have a 6' Fosmon HDMI cable, and I just also purchased a 6' Monoprice Premium HDMI cable to see if it was possibly the cable. I've tried both HDMI1 and HDMI2 ports on the TV...I've tried messing with all the audio settings in blu-ray player to no avail.
I don't have any other TV's I can plug my blu-ray player into, my comptuter monitor doesn't support HDMI either so I can't try that. I have some analog RCA cables on order from Monoprice so I may try running the audio to an old 90's Sony Pro-Logic Receiver and see what happens that way.
Any other ideas in the interm
