Hi All

Wondering if there is anyone out there who can help me with my problem. I have an issue with sound popping when I start up Final Fantasy XIV. It seems to be triggered in game. Then, when I exit the game the sound popping still remains.

I've checked to see if my 5970 drivers are up to date which they appear to be. Tried disabling my on-board sound device and still seems to continue.

I'm connecting my PC to my HDTV through a HDMI to HDMI connection with a DVI to HDMI adaptor.

Running out of ideas and hoping someone can help.

Hi

Thanks for your post.

What did you do instead? Is your PC still connected to your HDTV?

Lol, my pc is dead right now but yeah It was connected to my tv via hdmi to hdmi. I did notice that it would do it whether I started a game or not so it very well may be your game but in my case I couldn't say it was. My audio signal was ran to my receiver and powered from there. I spent a good deal of time trying to pinpoint the noise but it was so sporatic I couldn't conclude any one thing. It sure is pretty annoying and depending upon what my volume is set at potentially very damaging. I have a powered klipsch 650watt 12" sub and it about knocks out a window if I have It up high enough. I know I am not much help but it I ever figure it out I will let you know for $50...jk!

LOL I'm just running the audio through my normal tv speakers via the HDMI connection - so i'm not sure if it's a driver issue, my HDTV or my pc itself.

If you find a solution that works for me I may well just give you $50 lol.
