I've noticed a similar hum in my box, but it is connected directly to
my TV from the sound card. I have decided mine was from the on board
sound having a lot of electrical noise from the other stuff in the
box. Mine even gets worse when the panel goes shows on screen, so it
may even be coming from my video card or the AGP traces??
I'm anxious to hear the answers you get.
I have plenty of G Mail invites. Ask me if you'd like one. G Mail
rocks for email lists.
