Hi, I recently purchased a samsung TV (model WS32Z10) with built in DVR. I have noticed that when watching tv every 25 seconds the sound distorts slightly as if it were not tuned into the channel correctly. This distortion lasts for precisely 7 seconds and then for 25 seconds the sound is perfect again. This 25 second -7 second cycle repeats indefinitely. The picture is perfect and is not affected at all.
The sound fault can also be heard with headphones, however, it is not present (on headphones or speakers) if an external input (i.e.DVD etc) is used. I assume the TV has two seperate tuners to facilitate the picture in picture function and for timer recording using the DVR while watching TV. When watching programs previously recorded by DVR on timer record the sound is perfect, however, if the DVR is used to time shift live TV the fault is present. I assume that rimer record uses one tv tuner and timeshifting uses the other tuner??
I am guessing that the fault is located in the primary tuner somewhere? I have no idea what could cause an intermittant fault that occurs with such regularity (every 25 seconds).
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance, James
