Thanks Ian,
I have removed all the pulseaudio packages , and I'm pretty sure its not running or involved,
As I'm also getting similar symptoms from TV Playback I'm trying to resolve this incase 
this is a related symptom.
ie if I fix this there is a chance it might improve my TV playback experience.
