I am getting static sound on my video playback. I have my computer and camcorder going into a manual switcher and out of the switcher to a monitor on the wall. The static occurs when I have my HDMI cable from my computer plugged into the switcher. Whenever I unplug the HDMI cable from the computer or turn the computer off the static stops. All the cables are HDMI. Please help.

    Check for ground loops on all the gear in the chain. Do they all plug into the same outlet? Putting everything on the same power strip going to a single outlet may solve this as long as the outlet can handle the peak load. – filzilla Jan 15 '14 at 22:56
  • Ground loops more often cause hum, in my experience, but certainly worth checking. I'd also try simply connections -- bypass the switcher and just feed source to amp to speaker -- to try to isolate the problem; it may be as simple as a bad cable. – keshlam Jan 17 '14 at 0:24
