    the clicking (more like popping) noise is an output from the speaker. You can hear the audio and then there is a clicking / popping probably around 10 Hz over the audio output. The distortion is approximately 3X louder that the audio output.



    This system is hooked up to a new 46" LCD tv via optical cable.

  • dlowery962 Feb 09, 2010

    The clicking (or better yet popping) noise comes from both speakers. You can hear the audio, but there is this popping noise that comes out overtop of it. The popping is about 3X louder than the audio output.

    This system is connected to a new 46" lcd tv via optical cable. I have also tried with digital coax. Same result.

    The TV receives audio from a cable box (scientific atlanta 8300 series) and bluray (samsung 1600 series). Both via HDMI. They purpose was to replace the sound from the tv with the bose.

    I have tested with hooking optical from both the tv and cable box. Same problem with both scenarios. Could something with HDMI be causing the problem. This was never an issue wioth my old crt television.

    Can we determine where the clicks are originating? To what are you sending the digital audio? What source(s) make it click?

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?

    The HDMI works for getting both video and audio TO the TV for non-critical listening through TV speakers but you really don't need to be channeling it BACK to the Bose for HiFi listening. Many installations have Monitors instead of a TV so there's NO audio from the TV. How do they do it???



    Skip the audio middleman. For the best serious audio I would recommend drawing the audio-only digital feeds from the Cable Box and the Blu-Ray via their respective outputs. Then turn the TV's volume down.



    You have 4 digital audio inputs, 3 coaxial and one optical. I'd run the Cable to Cable (duh) and the Blu-Ray to AUX or TV, depending, of course, on physical compatibility of the digital audio outputs from each.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

I just hooked up my HT-Z320 today. I had to use an optical audio cable to connect the audio output from my TV to the optical audio input in the samsung receiver (it's the only optical jack on the receiver).

Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.

Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)
soundoutput003.jpg 6.
Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

Does the Insignia ns-2brdvd digital opt. output work with HDMI


Below is what your manual says abour it. From hardware perspective, when you have a disc in there the optical audio driver is active and so is the HDMI audio. To verify, lift the lid on the optical interface and you will see a red or blue light on the inside. Don't look directly at it! View from the side.Plug that into your home theater system, select that input on your home theater and you should be good to go.

Connect home theatre to 32" lcd to ps3


Depending on the year of your model of VIZIO your digital optical output may be tied to the DTV input only. Meaning the only time you will have audio coming out of the digital optical output is when your using the tuner and your on a digital channel. If your television is newer and the digital optical output is in white on the back of the television than it is tied to HDMI and the DTV Tuner and you will pass audio through the digital optical output when using HDMI or the Digital Tuner.

Now to get connect the HT: Normally you would run a digital optical cable from the source device to the home theatre system. Meaning if it was a PS3 you would run a optical cable from the Digital Out on the back of the PS3 to the Digital In on the Home Theatre receiver. If it was a DVD player than you would run the optical cable from the DVD player to the HT receiver. If you have a newer VIZIO and the optical output is in white and not black than you can run HDMI from the PS3 to the VIZIO and then run a optical cable from the VIZIO to the Home theater receiver.

You will have to adjust the audio setting in the PS3 to run audio out of the HDMI port if it is set to run audio out of the Digital Out or AV out. Also, if your going to run audio from the PS3 to the HT receiver through the Digital Out then you need to change the audio setting in the PS3 to Digital Out.

1. Select (Sound Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.
2. Select [Audio Output Settings].
3. Select the input connector on the audio device.

Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use. AV is 2 ch. only, Digital Out is 2 ch. & 5.1 ch, and HDMI is upto 7.1.
