Cross Frame (frameset) javascript problem

Hi, I am using a soundmanager object in a hidden frame on my site.  In this way, i can have continuous music throughout the navigation.  The problem is with the sound control buttons that i use on the visible frame.

If you go to : www.maharajahsroad.com - and enter the site by clicking through the splashpage. you will land on the INDIA page. You can then click the Off and On buttons at the top to stop the sound.  That works.  But if you then proceed to the video page, and try to click the Off button (or On button), it will no longer work.  If you then go back to the INDIA page, (by clicking on the India Link), the same buttons that worked at the start, no longer work.  I dont know what kind of JS erros are causing this, and I'm pretty vexed over the issue.

please help, THANKS!
IN FRAME2:
function stopmusic(){
 
soundManager.pause('mySound');
	//parent.frames['frame1'].mySwap(14);
		window.alert('The site music has been stopped');
 
}
 
IN FRAME1:
<a href="javascript:parent.frames['frame2'].playmusic();"><img src="images/player_on.gif" id="playerOn" onmouseout="mySwap(4)" onmouseover="mySwap(5)" /></a>
<a href="javascript:parent.frames['frame2'].stopmusic();"><img src="images/player_off.gif" id="playerOff" onmouseout="mySwap(6)" onmouseover="mySwap(7)"/></a>

First change

<a href="javascript:parent.frames['frame2'].playmusic();">
and
<a href="javascript:parent.frames['frame2'].stopmusic();">

to

<a href="#" onClick="parent.frames['frame2'].playmusic(); return false">

<a href="#" onClick="parent.frames['frame2'].stopmusic(); return false">

It is because you have another flash taking over in the video page
You should stop the music when the user loads video

Thanks alot.  Its all about moving from the HREF to the ONCLICK with the return false statement.  It makes all the difference.  Such a simple fix for my headache!  thanks again, it all works now.
