When sub is plugged into A.C outlet a lot of noise is generated thru the sub. When the sub is moved to a basement location no noise. As far as I can tell no noise is being generated by any electrical in the home.

Re: home theatre sub
Sounds like a ground loop issue. Try plugging your sub, and the rest of your entertainment equipment into the same outlet with an extension strip (4 plug adaptor). If there is too much stuff to plug into one strip, experiment with combinations and hopefully you will find which piece of gear is the culprit.

Easy. Your home theatre amp will have a sub or LFE output ( RCA plug ). You simply connect this output to the input ( usually the left side, or use a Y splitter and use left and right inputs, or the LFE input if your sub has it ). Then, you must turn the sub on in your recievers setup menu, and your sub should work.
There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-
1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.
2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV
3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.
contact panasonic customer service and tell them the model# of the sub , just tell them you need a replacement , they will ship it out to you at a reasonable charge and sometimes they,ll send them out for free if the unit was just purchased because you can tell them it was,nt with the unit and that always seems to work for , Hope i was able to help and if you think i was helpful please leave a nice rating Thank you sincerely glenn mayer
You probably have too much power running to your power strip that you probably have your xbox, playstation, tv and home theatre system plugged into, try using seperate wall outlets for your tv and home theatre system
I would suggest that you smash
Philips HTS w/a hammer!
I had better sound from TV alone! Only 2 speakers put out sound from TV. Recordings from DVR can not be heard very well w/all volumes at max. System sucks! You get what you pay for! $2500 LCD TV sounds worse w/Philips HTS than my son's $300 TV! ALL cables hooked up as instucted!!!!
Unplug your system from AC power.
Let it sit for a few minuets (there are capacitors inside of the unit that stores a small amount of power that needs to be discharged, which they will do if the power plug is not connected to the wall outlet). Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and insert the rental dvd. This should allow the unit to play the dvd now.
