    I have two TiVo HD units and one Premiere. The Premiere now has a little pop and some static after playback resumes from fast forward, rewind or pause. Anyone else have this? The two HD units do not do this and are connected through the receiver the same way as the Premiere. I use the Premiere very little as I just got it to look at the on demand stuff and it sooooooo sloooooow, the on demand and the menus.

    It seems this popping is new. I don't think it was there when I first got it.

    That's interesting, I've been getting a loud crack occasionally on my series III. It seemed to start when I put in a new Pioneer receiver so I thought it was the sound system. Yesterday I moved the III to another room to put in a new roamio. Now I do hear some static and low popping from the III. I'll have to pay attention to it to see when it happens. I never thought it could be the tivo, but now it seems possible.

    I only have some random popping during playback with optical audio. I'd be curious if you guys are experiencing it thru HDMI as the above poster inquired

    Yes, I’m using HDMI for everything. It’s seems like it has always been there but I did not notice it. I got a new receiver and now the two TiVo HDs do it too. The new receiver doesn’t like the way the TiVos start and stop the HDMI audio streams. Even when I don’t fast forward there can be pops when the show I’m watching and the commercials switch in and out of Dolby Digital. :( I mostly blame the new receiver (Onkyo 5010) but it seems like it was there on the other receivers too just not as bad.

    Try setting the audio output on the TiVo to PCM instead of Dolby, then check to see if the noise is gone. Let me know if this works for all of you. If it does, then the only answer is to leave it that way, or put it back, and deal with the pops etc. - I am in the same boat...

    I did try that and now forget the outcome but don’t you lose surround sound with PCM?

    It's odd, with the new receiver it seems to have switched as the HDs do it but not the Premiere. I can see on the front of the receiver that the Premiere maintains the HDMI audio stream. When I watch a show and switch to TiVo Central on the Premiere all the HDMI info stays the same but with the TiVo HDs the info goes away and comes back and you get the little pops or crackles.

    If I remember correctly, I think PCM on the TiVo is only two channel.
