"Video Freeze with sound loop"

Hi All,
I installed jamesdsp, while changing a setting, there was a bit of a crunch!
Started having “Sound Loop” problems. So uninstalled it. Changed to pulseaudio. which was no better. So restored a timeshift snapshot from a few days back. Problem still exists.
Journal shows:

Apr 22 20:34:01 hassomspewta pipewire[1276]: spa.alsa: 'hw:0,10': playback open failed: Device or resource busy
Apr 22 20:34:01 hassomspewta pipewire[1276]: spa.audioadapter: params Spa:Enum:ParamId:EnumFormat: 0:0 (follower format) Device or resource busy

As always, thankful for any help.

This is nuts@#%%$#
As a last resort I reinstalled pipewire_alsa. Rebooted, a little better. Opened pavucontrol, changed output from Digital hdmi 5.1 to digital hdmi output> Played a video. Still a sound loop. opened pavucontrol again, and switched back to 5.1, rebooted. Working Fine.
So, have spent 6 Hrs on this. For such a simple solution.
Crazy!!!
