Alright, so I've found answers to this all over the internet but none of them seem to work for me so here we go:

I purchased a new pc last month with the following specs: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/HsN2GT6LtZqwt1My6IKmenl .

Whenever I have a media player open, the sound is crisp and clear but the moment I open a second application (net browser/game/etc.) I get a horrible and consistent pop and crackle noise. I've tried different HDMI cords, bitrates, updated all of my drivers and nothing works. I'm pretty much at my wits end. From what I've gathered online, the fault is that the audio and video both share the same HDMI cable. What do you think?

This HDMI cable, what do you have it running to?

My Yamaha 5.1 Tuner. I thought that perhaps it was a problem with a faulty port on the tuner but it occurs in all four of them. I also have an xbox360 attached via hdmi to one of the ports and that one sounded fine so I switched it out for the pc and still heard the distortion, which led me to believe that the fault lies on the pc end.

Oh great, now my audio is cutting in and out and garbling (if that's a word) whenever I mouse open a second application. Perhaps I have a gremlin in the box? Ha.
