I play a movie stored on my PC (W7 x64). While the movie is playing I hit the middle button on the D-pad to bring up the player controls. I then select the icon on the upper right (settings, I guess) which allows me to change some things like subtitles, video, etc. When I change an option here and then go back to playing the movie I get this awful sound instead of the movies audio.

Running v1.01.16125

Confirm?

I can confirm that it does not happen to me streaming MKVs over the network

Did you possibly change something in the 'Audio' settings - does this happen on more than just one video/file - what type of file are you seeing this issue with

While I don't know if it was due to the steps you described, I experienced this soul-crushing noise, too.

It happened with mkv's and a BR image. In these cases I was getting English subtitles so I went into the settings and turned them off. After that the noise began. I also think it happened changing something else. Try confirming it by turning off subtitles. Movies might actually have to have subtitles to see this effect.

The key to make the noise is while the video is playing pause it then hit the middle button and select settings. When the menu appears just get out of it and return to the movie and play it.

If the movie is playing while you do all of this you won't get any noise and all is well. Pausing the movie and bringing up settings is the key.

It's also possible that doing other things while paused might also produce the noise when you resume play. I haven't tried this though.
