Something really annoying has happened over the past few days. Sound playback has started skipping. System Specs. Athlon 3200+ 1GB DDR Ram Abit V20 motherboard Hauppauge PVR150MCE Tv tuner Radeon 9800 Pro HDA X-Mystique Sound card. Now, i have my soundcard connected via SPDIF to a Sony Reciever. Until a few days ago the system had been perfect with no issues. Im running MCE 2005. Last night i installed roll up 2 for MCE 2005 (available on the MS OEM website), and its since then ive had the problem. So today i formatted, and reinstalled everything. Still sound skipping. It occurs both in Windows and MC. Ive reinstalled drivers, changed sound card to a different slot, experiemented with different DVD decoders. And its not just with DVD's, it happens with TV, and sound in general as far as i can tell. Can anyone help, im really stuck at the moment.
