    The HZ=1000 is the culprit?

    Humm, that might also reduce the obviousness of the irq activity in
    the audio, there are times when I can hear it very plainly while a
    low level audio src is in use, like the sub-millivolt levels that come
    out of my Hauppauge WinTV-GO+FM card. I keep having to turn the
    master down to almost zip in order to keep it from sounding like I
    have mice chewing in the walls, but its coming from the speakers.
    Onboard AC-97 audio of course. Crappy stuff... Humm, 100HZ would
    translate to 10 millisecond intervals. If you had a 4 millisecond
    that would be spread over 4 of the 1000 hz interrupts. That sounds
    rather confusing to the service routine I imagine.

    I'll do that just for grins & report back.

    Cheers, Gene
