I tried unplugging and plugging everything back in. Logitech said florescent lightbulbs or dimmer switches in a room can cause interference (both of which my room has). Took them to another room, plugged directly into a wall. No gain. I eventually began to think it was the control pod to sub cable that was **** up. Wiggling it around, playing with the pin connector to the sub, or even fumbling the control pod upside down would decrease/increase the hum. Now doing any of that does nothing.
Also with my system hooked up properly, say when I am playing PS3 with optical input, the control pod will read that it detects nothing, only when live sound is present. (ie noise in a game, clicking around the XMB menu) During silence like load screens the hum will die, along with the audio signal and the control pod will go back to saying there's no input detected. These symptoms are identical when hooked up to my external sound card for my pc. Clues, anyone? Desperate here.
