    My DV656 seems to generate a hum from the back of the TV when turned on. Ive tried another scart & also moving inputs on the back of the TV but to no avail..could any 656 owners please check if they have this problem to see if it is just my machine..it is a very low hum, which is barely audible when watching a film but is certainly off putting.

    LDR,

    Sorry buddy, must have missed your post last night....

    No, I get no humming from back of my TV with the 656 connected via SCART. I removed the SCART anyway to see if it got quieter at all, but no change. My 656 doesn't sit under the TV, it sits to the left and about 1.5 metres away. It uses a seperate power socket (in wall) from the TV and the SCART cable is a Monster 2.

    Hope some of that helps.

    Cheers

    Ian

    I have no probs with mine.....it must be your player...or maybe a dodgy earth on the TV.......
    I also have mine away from the TV, not by much thow....mine is on a shelf about 8" from the tv.
    Looks like only way to find out is, exchange it for another.
