I have a Harman Kardon AVR247 with Virgin+ box with the audio out optical and between ad breaks quiet spots it seems to pop/tick. Has anyone else encountered this on any amps?

Is it likey to be a problem of:
V+ ?
Amp ?
Speakers ?

Many thanks
How old is the amp? Just did a google search on hk and there seems to be a lot of these problems - but they seem to date back a while.
Seems HK know of these problems and are very apologetic and sort things out if you give them a bell.
AVS Forum seems to be the main place the problem is talked about. The info I got was all around early 2008 and the first 247's. I'd send HK an email and they can confirm what firmware etc. As I say, they seem very good with customer support which is a big bonus!
