Ubuntu HTPC - intermittent audio buzz over HDMI
Hey guys, I'm extremely new at Linux but managed to get Alsa .023 installed on my HTPC and sound working in xbmc. However, every 10-15 seconds when playing audio over HDMI, i get a short burst of static (maybe 0.5 seconds). The static does not interfere with the audio track. I have tried running my laptop using the same cable/tv/port and its fine (win7). Listening through the analog connection on the mobo with headphones produces no such noise.
The noise happens with any audio such as youtube or xbmc.

Happy to post any logs you may require but please tell me how to do so because as said, im very new
