Audio Hiss/Crackle issue - Samsung LED UN55B8000 - advice?


Just hooked up our new 55" LED B8000 series TV. Just about everything seems perfect, except there's an issue with the sound.

We have Comcast HD and are running audio through a home theater system (Harmon Kardon) with HDMI cables. Many channels sound fine, but some channels (and some of the recorded content on our DVR - but not all) have a terrible, overpowering hiss and crackle in addition to the "normal" sound you're supposed to hear.

Before this new unit, we were running a 42" Toshiba LCD HDTV with the same configuration - so this problem seems to be stemming from hooking up the new Samsung.

Does anyone have any advice to help us troubleshoot this? Thanks!
