I've had it for awhile now and I've just started to leave the recording sounds option off. When watching videos I record the sound is all crackly or there is no sound at all. The image however works flawlessly. I have onboard SoundMAX HD audio. Never really had problems with it other then this issue. I've googled it and found other people have this issue to but I haven't found a solution. Could codecs fix this issue? Or are there options I can change to make this work? Would buying a sound card fix this problem? If it could fix it what one should I get, I don't want to spend to much, around 20$ CND.
