help plz trying to use pc speakers for both TV and PC but getting buzzing sound from the speakers

Found 28th Feb 2011
Hi,
i wanted sound from my tv to come out of my pc speakers so i used a 3.5mm connection from my tv's headphone socket to my desktop (mic) and then simple went to manage audio devices> selected the recording tab>microphone properties>. listen (tab) then just ticked a box called 'listen to this device, it works but i have a buzzing sound coming out from the speakers

there's nothing wrong with the speakers as if i take the wire off it works fine and there is no electrical devices such as mobile etc nearby and when i untick that box, the sound goes back to normal but obv not getting sound from tv still. Any tips, thanks

Any tips, thanks



take off speaker covers, remove bees = fixed thank me later (_;)

you need to find the line in on your sound card in PC and plug the jack in there.

thanks but i did that, noise still there any other ideas?

change the cable, has the tv not got a dedicated sound output.

Which model number is TV and what make is sound card on PC, or what motherboard have you got if you are using onboard.

change the cable



the cable is new JVC bought it some time back for £18 from dixsons but never opened it untill now

does not mean it's not faulty and you paid how much 18 quid for an audio cable.

okay i done some testing and cable is fine, so i thought it might be the TV so i tried out my headphones on my tv and the same sound is coming from there also, so its my tv but i dont have that sound when i am listening to it normally?

maybe it's a dry / broken joint on the headphone output has the TV not got any other sound output options like RCA/ left/right red/white terminals ?

If you have an optical input on your sound card you could use that and connect optical cable from the tvs optical output [5] to the soundcards

okay thanks i have one on my graphics card but its called SPDIF (i think) is that the same thing because its shaped exactly like the optical connection on my tv?

it will need to be spdif -in or if your ati/ nvidia gfx card allows switching on it via software.

it doesnt say 'in' or 'out' just SPDIF, so im guessing i would be able to switch it on via software?

which gfx card is it ?

its a Sweex NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT 512MB PCI-E btw the buzzing sound has disappeared so all is good but have another problem now, the sound from my tv only comes out if the pc is on im guessing because the green wire from the speakers is connected to the pc tower, so anything i can do there?
thank you

You could get yourself an all in one cinema system or maybe the logitech z5500 would work better for you with pc/360/ps3/dvd/your tv/sky hd/ etc. They have gone right back up in price now as stock must be scarce. Anyways ideally you need somthing that decodes & has optical in.
