I find almost all of the shows I watch on my HD PVR, the noise coming out of the surrounds is either clapping, laughing, music, or crackling. Does anyone else get this? I find it very annoying when watching tv shows like big bang theory, how i met your mother, and other shows like this, constant hissing/crackle out of surround speakers. I usually just turn them off and watch it from my front 3 speakers. I get the sound into my avr by hdmi from my Bell HD PVR. Is there a fix to this or is it just because they don't really record these shows for 5.1 dolby surround? Or is something messed up on my end?

This also happens on certain movie channels, some movies I couldn't even watch it was just constant noise out of the rears.

There is a big difference between laughing and clapping vs crackling. Most tv sitcoms have background laugher in the surrounds, that's how it is mixed. If you are hearing crackling I would look to speaker or receiver problems

it doesn't crackle at all if it is anything other then TV programs. Blu-ray, games, music etc. is all perfect.
