BBC HD sound fault since freesat launch


Established Member
Since the launch of freesat i am getting a continuous buzzing distortion on the bbc hd channel from my pace 810 it only happens on bbc hd and via hdmi and optical (BTW optical sounds much better than hdmi on this box ?) , as i only use it for bbc hd i now have a piece of junk! has anybody got any ideas on this.

i am thinking of getting a freesat hd box anyway as i have never liked the pace box very very poor IMHO, be grateful for any help (take it the tip lol)

I noticed this too... if it is the same thing?? I recorded one of those London Sessions with Van Morrison. I was looking forward to HQ 5.1 Channel sound but was dissapointed to find a constant low volume 'clicking' sound which seemed to affect the rear speakers mostly!!!:mad:

From what I have read, the clicking/buzzing noise only appears when the preview starts after midnight. It was still apparent when I flicked over to BBC HD around 4am. However, the buzzing noise had gone by the time I was up in the afternoon.

Another point is that im having a lot of audio drop-outs on Luxe HD. Also when watching more 4/E4, Im getting a bit of static/noise when one advert flicks onto the next but so far have only found it on them 2 channels.
