So I've been converting videos via handbrake and this latest issue has really stumped me. I converted the video (flv) to m4v via Handbrake, and added it to my iTunes, etc. I can hear this static noise too. I think it could be because its a YouTube video, but when I play on my computer or ipad, it doesn't occur, everything plays perfectly. Other videos that I ripped play and sound fine though. Furthermore, it lags a bit too. I mean, when I hit the pause button, a few more words or sounds plays for a few seconds. I thought it could be air video server interfering or my CPU (since I was in the process of encoding more vids), but even with both of those not running, the same thing happens. I have the ATV 3, running on 802.11n. My Internet is fast too, so I can't figure out the cause. ---------- Well I figured it out. I had to turn off Dolby on my ATV. is there a significant difference with Dolby on or off?
