Snap Crackle and even some pop on Sky+

UK Sky Digital question. I've got Sky+, and increasingly the sound is very poor, static is the best description, with some crackles & loud pops'. Any ideas?

How long has this been happening? I don't have Sky+, but yesterday and today audio on Sky channels has been turning to static and hissing/crackling for some reason. First time I've had any problems f that nature in the 10 years I've had Sky.

Could it be the weather? I've had regular Sky Digital for a few years and whenever we have hot, humid weather, the picture always goes to crap and freezes when changing channels.

Oh, and whenever it rains too. I note Digit Al is not mentioning these things when he tells us all to go digital by 2010.

If the picture isn't breaking up at the same time it's probably a fault with your box's audio chip, your cables or your TV. Make sure everthing's plugged in probably, then get your box replaced.

Response by poster: Cheers for the responses so far

Been happening for the last couple of weeks. What was wierd last night was the fact that it got very crackly during a film I'd recorded about weeks ago.

Don't think it's the TV as analogue is fine, only happening on sky

so you don't have any picture breakup at all?

if not, as said above, it's probably a hardward fault

if so, you probably need your dish realigned
