    Ok I was wondering if someone could give me some suggestions.
    I have a simple pioneer htib and a comcast analog cable box. It was working fine up until 2 weeks ago when I tried to get the sound from the cable box out of my htib. I get this buzz sound.
    This has never happened before and I've used it alot for this purpose.
    I tried different things to narrow it down to what it could be. I've figured its not the htib. So I brought in one of my other cable box's (same as the old one) and I still get the same buzz. It sounds like it might be the coxial cable coming into the cable box. Anyone else out there ever had this problem and could possibly point me in the right direction.


    Thanks
    Jerry

    You probably have a "ground loop" problem. Read this. You'll probably want an Isolation Transformer mentioned. I have one myself.
