Clicking noise on Multitech/Dolby setting

I get a clicking noise every 30 secs or so on the above setting when running the tv sound through the system and also off dvds. Its really annoying as this is by far the best sound setting especially for music. I have a Philips plasma bought at the same time and a HDMI cable linking them. I have tried the speakers in every possible position so its definitely not interference due to the speakers being too close to the TV. Please has any one any ideas or is it just a fault ?

Re: Clicking noise on Multitech/Dolby setting


Did you experience this from the start (since the first time you used it) or did it started just recently? Check that the HDMI cable is connected properly at both ends and it's not near/touching any other cable or power supply. After checking this and if it is still there then it could be a fault with the cable. If you have another cable to try, that would be great.

NO OPTICAL SOUND I connected HDMI from reciever to TV, HDMI from PS3 to TV, Optical from PS3 to Receiver (PS3 Sound settings switched to Optical, with Dolby Digital 5.1CH, and Dolby DTS 5.1 selected) ...

I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

Clicking noise on top of audio when using digital

Of course it comes from the speakers. What I meant was - what source originates the clicking? Pops on a digital feed are from digital data read errors or overloads (all 1's).

To what is the TV sending digital audio, and why? Any TV-related audio should be available to the Bose directly from the same device the TV gets it. Why send it to the TV first?

Lg home theater to lg plasma tv

This is a typical problem with TV broadcast UNLESS you use a matrix DSP surround sound mode, most DVD audio is either Dolby digital 5.1 surround or DTS multi-channel surround sound, unless you are viewing a HDTV broadcast with 5.1 Digital sound connected from the TV to the receiver then you are probably receiving a 2 channel Stereo sound format, I would suggest that you try to set your TV input mode to a audio Dolby Pro- Logic which will yield 5.1 and should engage all speakers.

Audio from tv

It sounds like you have the red,white rca cables hooked from the back of the tv to the red,white input on the stereo or the same connection from you hd sat box or hd cablebox. In order to get the same sound quality from tv service as you do on dvd is to run a fiber optic cable or digital coax audio cable from you hd sat box or hd cablebox to your stereo which means no red,white rca cables at all, take them out. Also once you do that you must be on a hd channel to get equal sound quality of a dvd movie. I know on some hd cable or hd sat boxes you have to go in and set them up to dolby digital as well after you hook it up the way I was explaining. Try this and I hope this is helpful.

PCM 2.0

I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.
