I recently ran my sound and video to my t.v. and stereo. With my stereo, I get a buzzing or humming sound, and with my t.v. I get a rolling line going up the screen. I have switched the cables on the back of my comp and put the comp speakers in the output for the stereo and I get no buzzing from my desktop speakers. My stereo is brand new and I have a span of about 50ft between both. Any suggestions? Thanx guys.
for your tv, be sure to change your graphics settings to 800X600. Further more, most TV:s have a refresh rate of 50-60 Hz so you might want to set that setting back as well in your comp. As for your sound problems, if you already tried different cables I would go for a driver update next and see what happens. Tried this yet?:)

Thanks Fred, haven't tried 800x600 yet, I got new drivers for my sound card, but I haven't tried changing my cables. Thanks
