    HDMI Audio quality

    I have just tried the HDMI output for the first time, and find the audio quality is very noisy (crackles like a weak radio station) and distorted. Video quality is OK. Other HDMI sources such as DVD players are fine. Is there something to set up with the PB?

    Is the connection to to the PlayBook microHDMI good? As in, it doesn't jiggle around?

    Also make sure the HDMI cord itself isn't tangled or anything.

    I tried all those things. Whether I download YouTube programs or play Audio makes no difference. The Audio from the jack to earphones or radio is excellent. It's definitely the HDMI output.

    I have only used the headphone jack through my home theater, as I just assumed that the HDMI didn't carry audio. Will have to try it and let you know if mine is the same.

    The HDMI output carries Audio and Video. My wife's iPad plays perfect Audio and Video which we use for downloading YouTube material.

    Have you updated to the latest OS update for your PlayBook? Just to rule out software issue.

    Otherwise, it sounds like you have a hardware problem. You may try a different HDMI cable to see if it's the problem.

    I'm up to date with the OS thanks. I am using an HDMI cable that is also to take the HDMI signals from other sources so it's not that. I fear I have a hardware problem.
    Thanks
