Question about Lexicon Omega Desktop Recording Studio Sound Card

2 Answers

Computer Noises.... I have tried changing settings within my pc.... I have tried different sources etc.... and I still get an an**ying computer backround **ise all the time when I am monitoring my mix. I can tell that this sound is coming from the pc becuase when I plug it in the backround **ise begins.... when I unplug it, the backround **ise stops. Also whenever I move my mouse, turn on my external fan or do anything in my pc, the **ise persists and will actually correlate with such actions, providing a sound for everything going on inside my laptop. Is there a setting or anything that I should fix? Or is my usb ports all have a short in them? HELP PLZ!!!!! and yes.... this backround **ise happens when I record, and when ** audio is playing, and when my gains and line settings are all the way down.

    How do I "super ground" something?  You say to connect them to the ground/chassis of the desktop.  What materials do I need to do so?  Thankyou for your response IB42008... you rock!  If this fixes my problem, you will have saved me ALOT of grief.

I just want to say that I'm having the same problem, but I'm afraid I don't understand the reply either. IB4G2008, if you could explain in more basic terms for beginners, that would be much appreciated!

Happens with a mixed ground issue. I had same thing with my laptop. only way to avert this is to super ground your digital sound devices...and connect them to ground/chassis of the desktop, if that's your option.

I cant figure out how to put the tv on video 1

With the remote in TV mode, the input button on the remote should change the source (TV, AV1, etc. depending on the TV).

If the input button doesn't work, try a different code for your TV manufacturer. A code that controls the basic functions of the remote may not control the full set of functions of the TV. For some TVs, you can change the source from within the Menu. (It depends on the TV. I didn't notice if there was a Menu button that will open the TV menu on the RCA RCU600M.)

If none of the codes work, check if your TV has a Source or Input button on the unit. See if that button works.

If you have a different remote, please indicate the model.

I hope this helps.

I have logitech x220 speaker set up, but I am getting intermittent distortion. Which renders them useless for playing music, they even distort computer warning noises! I have changed from an integral sound...

actually the harddrive could also be the problem, because when you do have a problem with your HDD your computer tend to intermittently hangup or freezes that causes the distort effect on the sound system. Also you could try using your speaker on a different computer or plug it on an mp3 player so that you could eliminate the factor that your speaker has the problem and if not try using another HDD for your computer or worst case scenarion would be changing the motherboard of your computer.

Question on allowable use

Hi sheawm. You can use your speakers as long they have the mini-plug connector such as ipods, blackberrys, laptops, desktops, etc. so it won´t matter. I hope this helps.

I put in a jump drive and after i finish the notebook would not start up

Turn the computer off.
Remove the jump drive.
Turn the computer on.
Does it try to start-up, i.e., lamps come on, noises are generated?
Try the jump drive in a different computer,
presuming that the different computer has *good* anti-virus software -- there could be a computer-virus stored on the jump-drive.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.
