Has anyone experienced static noises during races when playing the game. I dont get any static/electrical interference noise in the game menus or any other time using my xbox one including twitch, tv, or any apps. The copy of Forza 5 I have is a digital copy that came with the console. I thought it may be the display settings for the tv (brightness,etc) but that has no effect. Its definitely not my Yamaha receiver cause I have no issues at all watching cable, blurays, smart apps on my samsung tv, or on my ps3. Any ideas or suggestions?

I have experienced static/noise on Halo Spartan Assault recently. When trying to recreate it, I failed but it happened when the game was returning from playing a level when I pressed "Quit to Menu" and in the process also turned off the Xbox. On resuming my Xbox, the game was in Main Menu and hissing at me like a cornered wildcat.

Did you powercycle the console already and/or have you tried switching HDMI-leads? Like, put the One on the HDMI that is currently used for your PS3 and vice versa?

I did try swapping the HDMI although I knew that wouldn't solve anything. I just did a powercycle and low and behold, no more static issues. Feel like an idiot for not doing that before. I just bought this console 6 weeks ago mainly for Forza and still learning the ins and outs I guess. I did notice the noise never happened until this last update. Thanks for your help and race on buddy.

I have the same problem and also with video. The video portion seems to skip like a cd. Very brief interruptions but ocurrs about three times every 4 seconds or so. Thought it might be th hdmi cable but that didn't solve the problem. I just turned the game off and said to hell with it.

Forgive me for not knowing, but what's a power cycle? Or maybe I know already but call it something different?

Xbox on. Hold power button on console for 5 seconds until it powers off. Wait 30 to 45 seconds. Turn on again using power button on console.

Some of the sound people are referring to is actually crackling from other cars engines. It's supposed to be in the game. However there appears to be a bug where sometimes it gets stuck in a loop and becomes distorted.

I hear it every once in a while when in a race. It is definitly static, seems to get louder when the engine gets reved up. The only solution i have found is power cycle. The HDMI cable I'm using is the one that came with the xbox.

The HDMI cable should be going into your TV or your amp directly, whichever sound output you're using. Not guaranteed if it will make pops and crackles go away, but it might. Also try lowering the in game volume. Worked for FM4, might work for 5 too.

I found that turning my console off wasn't enough. Loading up a different game, then reloading Forza 5, solved the problem. Forza is pretty much the only game I play on my Xbox One: perhaps it is a memory leak or corruption in the sound buffer.

The static is caused by a Microsoft software issue. It's been happening to me for months. From what I've read, Microsoft is aware of the problem. Completely powering down will temporary solve the problem

This is apparently only a problem when playing Forza 5. The ONLY solution is to power down the Xbone and UNPLUG it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in and restart the system and game. Whatever is causing the problem is causing a hardware problem that requires a cold reboot to clear the problem. Turn 10, what's up with this? Is there a fix coming from either you or Mother Microsoft?

I only get a bit of static when using the Xbox stereo headset. You all are getting it straight from the game via your audio system?

Mine just started the loud sound distortion as well a few days ago. Turned off the Xbox and left it unplugged for a few minutes and it went away. I haven't played all that much until recently, but this started after updating to the most recent version of the game 2 days ago.
