I just bought a Samsung LNS3251D as well as an HDMI cable from monoprice, which I hear are very reliable.
I received the cable last night and set everything up. Picture displayed correctly, sound was great, etc.
However, upon booting up the Motorstorm demo, the screen turns to fuzz and I hear a crackling noise from the speakers for 2-5 seconds before the game boots up like normal and everything displays perfectly. The same things happens for Resistance as well. Watching downloaded videos, however, goes without a single hitch.
Other message boards tell me this is a normal issue with some TVs and I know people with the same TV as me who do have the same problem, but I also know people who do not have any issues at all.
Basically, I just want a little more reassurance that there is nothing wrong with my system, TV, or cable. Also, is there a way to improve this issue?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
