DVI-->HDMI cable causes tv speakers to hiss and pop

I'm trying to connect my HTPC to my 42LG50 with a DVI to HDMI cable. I have a minijack cable carrying the audio.

When I have the video cable connected, the tv's speakers hiss and pop. The volume control and mute button do not do anything. When I switch to the DVD player on a component input, the sound works normally.

I tried connecting my iPod to the audio in, just to make sure, but that sound did not come out of the speakers, just the hissing.

I connected my macbook to the tv using the same cables and it works fine.

I'm going to try upgrading the video driver to the very latest, but I'm not sure that'll do anything.

My HTPC is running SuSE Linux 11, and has an Nvidia graphics card.

Check the tv's setup menu to see if you can reassign the audio for that input to analog only

DVi to HDMI. ? hmmmmm

I recon you spend £49.99 and get a DVI & Audio to HDMI Converter. This will resolve the issue

    It's an issue with the Nvidia Linux driver. I'd rather not spend 50 of any currency unit when I can just mute the TV's speakers.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.
