    The Tv is an element Model # (ELCHS261) hooked up as a TV not hooked up to a computer. On occasions the audio sounds muffled (like the audio is turned up way to high, vibrates). i have tried everything byswitching the set up options from stero, mono or SAP. Also tried the audio balance, turning surround sound on -off, auto vol, the equalizer ( but not sure how these should be set up)??any ideas. and also SPDIF Type(PCM, Dolby Digiatl and off what ever these mean, not to sure. I even tried the Element web site( which was no help). My quess is either 1 the TV is a piece of junk or 2 the speakers are blown. any ideas would be greatly helpful, thanks

    So you say inappropriate? Please then clarify for us what this has to do with the IBM Thinkpad T20 PC Notebook or an Element TV? Is the Element TV an application that you run on this notebook? Or is this an actual TV, and if so, furnish a model number?

Thank you for clarifying for us what it is you have, it's very helpful. I don't know how long you've had the TV, is there a chance that there is a guarantee covering it if it indeed has any problems? (not for us to know, just thought I'd bring it up.) Some suggestions: I see from the spec's that the TV has a headphone jack. You should try headphones when the problem is exhibited, (even if they're for your IPOD) if the headphones sound clean it's probably the speakers. If the distortion is present in the headphones, it's probably not the speakers, or anything else in the TV. In which case I would suspect a problem with the source, you know, the old garbage in - garbage out. Even digital cable is not immune to such problems. It's only as good as the guy that set it up. Hope this helpful for you.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I have the same problem with my 55" Element TV. The audio sounds like everyone is talking in a can. This happens on almost all DVD's or BlueRay discs and sometimes while watching network TV. The problem is more when using a DVD player though. Most TV programming is okay. I like the suggestion about hooking up to headphones and see if the poor quality still exists. I will post a followup...

Why mic sound muffled


Depends on what you mean by "muffled". Internal microphones and standard external ones are not high quality mics, but that sound I would describe more as fuzzy. So if you could be a little more descriptive I could help further.

Have you "muted" the sound on your computer?

Have you "muted" any of the outputs (MIDI, speaker) on your computer?

Have you "muted" the sound on the TV's built-in speakers?

Have you "muted" the sound on any external speakers that are connected to your TV?
Does your TV have _more_ than one HDMI port? Have you tried them all?

Laptop to TV connection but no audio


what kinda connection did you made?? what kinda cord did you use....anyway...it usually works that way..you can get image on TV ..by setting the image card driver ...but the sound bust be connected separately ...if your TV has a input plug for sound...just take a proper cable ...and get signal from the green out of the computer and plug it into the input of the tv ...this way you will have sound comming from the TV speakers and access on the volume with its remote control ...but no matter what kinda plug u used for the connection with the tv ...you will not get eny thing more than image..
so...if your TV doesnt support sound plug in just attach some speachers ...

Extended my monitor to a Vizio 37" LCD TV Echoed Sound


You have an HDMI connection on a Thinkpad T20???
Per definition, HDMI is supposed to send video and audio data from the TV to the PC -so, yes, it should work.

I say "should", because I tried to hook up my PC that way and I went back to a VGA connection (and sent the sound to an old stereo), because the resolution was awful.
I rather think that the audio cable is the culprit here - if the connectors are not fitting perfectly, they can create a lot of distortion.

Also check your audio settings on the PC (updated driver, settings not on maximum volume, etc.)

If you want to try HDMI, there is no need to get the ultra expensive "Monster" cable. Look here for an example.
