stupidly didn't send this to the list...

Thanks for your reply

i've tried changing the volume levels in the recording profiles to no avail. 
having sat in front of the box for an hour with a stop watch i've noticed that 
the disruptions occur every 50-60 seconds, and last for 10-20 seconds. This 
then repeats ad nauseum...

I think i was wrong about crowds / many talking etc causing the crackling, it 
occurs when there is just a one person speaking etc - its just obviously a lot 
more obvious when theres a crowd cheering.

Given that the periods of crackling are predicatable, does anyone have any 
idea / things i can check / settings to change?

Any help greatly appreciated
