Hi All


A silly issue, just started catching up with a few shows via TVNZ On Demand, but I get another music source playing over the voice tract....seems two tracks playing.


I have been through task manager looking for other services Spotify and killed them off but cannot seem to stop the instrumental soundtrack teat all but drowns out the show.  Suspect it is my Win7 pro desktop and not TVNZ On Demand.


As soon as I start the play the show there is a music sound track and the shows audio is faint. SDtops when I pause the show.  Does not trigger on You Tube videos.


Looking for suggestions to identify and correct.

OK tries a TV# on demand show and same issue. Confirms it is related to my default playing software.

Could it be an ad trying to play?

Don't think so.....seems to be instrumentals and they run for the entire soundtrack of the show.  Stop and start with the video feed.  Ads are OK, tried on a Win7 laptop (via laptop speakers)and it was still there but not as pronounced so it appears it is the background soundtrack for the show (Blindspot)...suspect my USB headset may be playing up so will look to swap this out.....overdue for a new headset anyway.
