OK, this has only happened since going to 5.5 and it only appears once in a while.

While watching video on Mplayer, the audio goes "cylon" sounding. Not new cylon either, 'old school' digital cylon. Now, cool effect, but a real drag when I'm watching a movie. Now a quick skip back will solve and resolve problem, but... This has happened on my MFE, SFE, on vobs, apple trailers and I think an avi, but I haven't confirmed the avi. Outside of the trailers, these are vids that have played fine in the past.

Hardware is Hereand the FE is based on a ASUS M2NPV-VM board.

Anyone else hearing this?

Yes, I am getting this the first time watching a apple trailer. If I back out and re-play the same file, then the problem is gone.

I'm not sure what cylon sounds like, but I'm having some issues with on-board audio for the same motherboard. I am using a TOSLINK cable for digital. Are you using digital or analog? Did yours work fine in R5F27, too?

Here's a link to my description:

This happened to me every so often with R5F27. The solution was to drop at a virtual console (ctrl+alt+F1), su to root, and run alsaconf which unloaded, then loaded the sound drivers. After that, I'd go back to X (ctrl+alt+F7) and it worked just fine.

Hasn't happened since I upgraded to R5.5 (knock on wood).
