    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place.

    I have a Philips LCD TV which I've connected to my Gateway M1615 laptop in order to watch movies. I get a weird static sound from the TV speakers when video is playing, and it doesn't matter whether the source is streaming (netflix) or a file played via VLC player or Media Player. The sound gets worse as more is going on with the audio...what I mean is, it's not as bad when its just people talking, but when there's an action scene or music it gets very pronounced. I have HDMI out from the computer and am using a regular HDMI cable that works fine with my DVD player. Any ideas?

    If it is new, recently purchased, take it back to the shop and get a replacement.

    We bought one of a different brand (or different badge perhaps!) and when I took it back to the store I was told that it is not an unusual fault, it's just that some people's hearing pick it up and some don't...

    I can imagine this post is going to start some really paranoid thinking for those who have just recently bought a LCD Tv....
