Clicking with Dolby Digital

Hey just wondering if anyone else is having issues with Dolby Digital after it was introduced in the March update. I've used Dolby Digital through both HDMI and Optical, and whenever it is set to that, I get an obnoxious clicking/crackling randomly that I do not get if I have the output set to stereo. 


I know this is not an equipment/cable issue since this only occurs when the Xbox is set to bitstream out/Dolby Digital. It's gotten to the point that I have started using stereo output despite the improved overall quality of Dolby. Has anyone else experienced this of been able to remedy it?

i got a crackling last night i did a hard restart and it fixed it

Thanks for the tip but it seems like this is a temporary fix.  It was okay for like another thirty minutes after the reset but then it came back. Really hope that they get it sorted out soon.

MS have said they are looking into this, the last I heard was it was a codec issue which means it's software so should be fixed soon.
