My Xbox audio has usually been fine, but I get pops/clicks/stutters when downloading any content. It has made my Xbox unusable when downloading anything because it is so annoying. I am currently downloading Forza 6 and would like to play another game while I wait, but the audio problems are unbearable.
My audio setup is as follows:
I have an optical S/PDIF cable running out of my Xbox into a converter box with an optical S/PDIF input, and a coaxial S/PDIF output. The coaxial cable is running into an audio interface that is connected to my studio monitors.
On the software side, I have my audio interface running at a 48kHz sample rate and it is accepting the Xbox One as the master sync clock via the S/PDIF connection. I cannot find any information as to what sample rate I should set my interface to, but I am assuming it is 48kHz. If the sample rate is wrong, I would expect these audio distortions all of the time, but I only get them when downloading content.
My Xbox is connected to my TV via HDMI, and I have HDMI audio turned off in the Xbox system settings. Optical audio is set to stereo uncompressed.
Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
