I'm not a very materialistic person....but my Honey loves tv and movies...splurged on a true 55in tv (by splurge mean~on sale generic off brand). I, personally, think sound bars for the tv are ridiculous....about as dumb as putting the speakers in the back of the set so sound can bounce off the wall. Instead, invested in a sound system.....first attempt was a cheap $80 RCA system that my Honey fried the power source within the first week :( I hate trying to figure out what type of electronics will work together....but I scored well the second time on a LG surround sound system! It can play dvd/blue ray, but the best part is can store and play movies off a flash drive~perfect for my Honey.
Lately, the sound connection cord has been causing a buzz to come through the speakers, like the connection wasn't quite there. Didn't seem to bother my Honey~going to guess it has something to do with his drummer's ears LOL I had a piece of packing tape holding the connection taught making the buzz less obvious. After the cable guy took days to install our cable, the buzz was worse than ever!
The other day, decided was going to fool around with the cable connection and see if could get rid of the buzz. I had the cord all taped down and buzz was less noticeable...went about with doing some cleaning before having to go to work. I was nowhere near the tv when the sound went out and then there was a horrible loud buzz! Shocked....I turned the sound system off until I could figure out what the heck happened. I plugged and unplugged~pushed the connection in the back of the tv...pushed it in a little...worried I may have broke the sound system. Great....how am I going to explain this to my Honey when he gets home and discovers the sound system doesn't work~instead makes a horrible noise when you turn it on. It was getting close to time for me to leave....trying not to feel frustrated....and then I noticed, one of the HDMI cords was not plugged in. D'oh! It must have been just lose enough for gravity to pull it out....or wasn't plugged in all the way to begin with. Thank goodness, with just a quick plug in and everything worked! And I managed to kill the buzzing sound! LOL Ah, some days it's just the little things :)
