    Can somebody help me diagnose sound problems?


    Hi
    I'm using Windows 8 with the Media Centre plug-in.

    My problem: After watching live TV (Satellite using TBS 6981 card) for a few minutes, the sound starts to stutter and gradually gets worse until there is no sound. If I simply go up or down a channel, the sound is fine, then it starts to stutter again after a few minutes.

    I have the latest drivers installed for the TBS card, the HD on board sound and the motherboard.

    Other things like Spotify or iPlayer work faultlessly.

    Where do I start my diagnosis?

    HELP!

    Since everything else works OK, it has to be an issue with the Satellite card or reception.

    Well I guess that is the logical answer.

    I didn't mean it to be a wise guy answer. It appears that its not a PC sound hardware or driver problem and its working correctly and just the application, in this case the Satellite card/software/configuration is causing the problem.

    It could even be the Satellite receiver or transmission that is causing it.

    No, it's fine. I feel a bit silly for not coming to the same conclusion. Sherlock, I am not.
