Hello there,

I'm not sure where else to turn., so I'm posting this here to see if anyone can help me. Links to devices are below this post. I'm really not good with this sort of thing.

I purchased a new Haier TV this week and I'm having trouble setting up my Audioengine speakers to it. The TV includes a headphone input/orange coaxial/R&W. Now, because it has a headphone jack, that's what I went with right away, because my old TV had one and I had no issues. The speakers are powered and also include a 3.5mm input, as well as R/W input & outputs, and a USB input? I am playing music/streaming/games from a Playstation 4 with this setup.

Anyways, when I plug the headphone jack in, the TV stops making sound and the speakers pick it up no problem... But with a low hiss sound, like there is a tree blowing in the wind, whenever there is sound being played. I also notice a sound quality difference, compared to my old TV. This set-up now sounds more treble-y and sounds cheaper... If that makes any sense...Again, I never had this issue with the last TV OR my turntable, that is also plugged into the speakers. I obviously want these speakers, instead of using the stock internal speakers the TV has to offer. It is a cheap brand TV, but has decent picture. The sound is terrible. It's almost as if the TV's crappy sound is being played through the external speakers, regardless of how the speakers sound plugged into something else. At times I also hear a high pitched ringing, similar to when you get that ringing in your ear.

My question is, is there another way to plug the TV into these speakers, that would potentially get rid of the hiss and treble sound? And if so, what would I need to purchase?

Any other information needed, please ask. Thank you very much.

EDIT: I've been thinking and researching, if the issue could be the headphone jack, could I not just plug an optical into the PS4 and put the sound directly to the speakers, through a digital to analog converter? Similar to: this ?

In that case I would be going around the TV entirely. I guess I would lose the ability to use the speakers for any other devices on the TV though, but I would be ok with that. Could this work?

Or, maybe I could even put a coax into the converter and line it to my TV instead, as my TV has a coax out (does not have optical)? In that case, I would not be using the headphone jack. Am I missing something here or could that work? Just don't want to purchase one without knowing for sure.

EDIT2: I tried putting a USB into the speakers and plugged it into the PS4, it worked, but the sound is SOO quiet and maxing it out with the speakers isn't good enough. Would that happen if I did the digital from PS4>Speakers?

Hi,

So I just bought a Seagate 2TB external HDD (STBV2000100) to use as a media back-up with all my movies, music and photos. I'm having trouble seeing anything that I put on the HDD show on the PS3. I have formatted the HDD to FAT32 and even tried making the proper folders on the HDD (GAME, MUSIC, PICTURE, VIDEO) with no luck. I've also just tried throwing files onto the root of the drive without folders and nothing. I've even tried making 2 separate partitions (1TB each) to see if maybe having 2TB is too much for the PS3, still did not work. I should also mention that I formatted this HDD several times with several different programs to see if that would make a difference, and nothing.

Basically what I'm seeing when I plug in the HDD to PS3 is the HDD option and when I click it it says "no titles, or no photos" etc... And yes, I've tried clicking the triangle, and clicking show all, and the only difference that makes is shows me all folders that I have on the root of the HDD. Still no files... The files I have on the HDD inside the folders are .avi, .mp4, .mp3 etc...

I've seriously been up all night obsessing over this because it SHOULD be working! I've been all over the internet and I've seriously tried everything.

Please give me your thoughts, I'm at the end here and I'm not sure what else to try...

Thank you

Could be a resolution or video input issue.

How is the PC connected to the monitor?

Through DVI, I also just moved and it began happening at that point. What would you suggest for this issue?

Wait, what? You're deciding not to buy a PC game because it requires Origin? Haha.... Why do you play PC games?
