Daughter's got a load of mates round tonight for a big film watch and sleep over, and the sound's gone mad on the HCPC. I will be DEAD if I can't sort this soon!! Running MAudio 410 as analogue sound card, with WinDVD 4 doing the decoding. Already watched 2 films today - fine. Started up another, and the sound's coming out very strangely - almost skipping and jumping stuff. Tried different DVDs, then also a CD (also played throught WinDVD) - all the same. So Tried playing CD through Media Player - also the same. Then ran an .MOV from the HD, and it was fine. So it looks like it's something to do with the DVD drive/signal from it. I guess the other thing to try would be to rip a DVD to HD and try it from there, but that will be new territory foir me, so I'll have a look around. In the meantime, any suggestions?
