Seems like any scenes with fire (I can replicate the issue with the last two episodes of Game of Thrones) will lead to crackling / popping sounds. I'm not exactly sure how to handle this. I can't seem to replicate the issue in any other player no matter how loud I make the video. I also have no issues while playing games. It's just isolated WMC and TV viewing.
Anyone have dealt with this and know of a solution?
