I have a PS3, and out of nowhere there is this horrible sounding static that plays while watching movies (BLU-RAYs or Netflix HD/5.1 shows). I know it is definitely a problem between the PS3 and whatever it's connected because I connected it directly to my TV (vice receiver) and still the horrible static sounds. So, I switched out the HDMI cables with different vendors and still the same problem. I heard online that turning off the tv for 10 secs, and turning it back on works, well it doesn't for me.
So what gives? Is it the PS3? Some options perhaps? Or is it getting some crazy feedback somehow from the TV (even through the receiver mind you).
It just started out of nowhere and I am about ready to take a bat to my $1000+ setup in my bedroom...please deter me:)

I don't know if this will make a difference, but in the PS3's audio setting you can switch between PCM and bitstream. Try both settings and see which works best for you.
