	Are there any other switches you can try to see what changes?  Perhaps 
a different audio setup or something?

	Ferrite beads!  They work for so many other things, they might help 
here -- wrap your power cables on them, your audio/video cables, 
everything.  It might help, it sure can't hurt.

	Hope you figure this one out!
