(Ignore the star rating) Okay so, Wintyrsnow gave you a pretty thorough ravaging, so I’m not going to get too specific as I agree with ...

Omg, I can do an official critique now. :lol: PS. I thought I wouldn't mind star ratings, but now that I'm faced with providing one, I can'...

My name's Alanna, but people here mostly know me as Snappy.
For that reason, I get a lot of people thinking I'm a man. This, I am not.

I have lived in Calgary, CAN, Vancouver, CAN, and London, UK.
I get a new tattoo every time I move to a new city. It wasn't intentional. It just ended up that way.
I intend to move to many more cities.

As you can tell by looking at my gallery, I used to do traditional and digital art, but I haven't done either in years.
I still do photography, but that is on the backburner while I focus on my writing career.

I am currently a contracted screenwriter for NGN Productions, a company in LA. I won't call myself a "professional" until they pay me on the first day of pre-production.
The project I'm working on is a remake of Orson Welles' The Stranger (1946). I release updates here as I am permitted. It will hopefully be shot in Spring 2013.

Feel free to add me on Facebook or Twitter! (Just let me know who you are.)…!/shadow0nthesun

HELP: Any AV nerds in the house?

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 5:15 PM

EDIT:// We found a DVD player and hooked it up with AV cable and the audio works great through there, so it's not the speakers. 


So we just picked up a great 63" RCA DLP TV second hand... The guy showed us everything at his house. The audio worked great. We take it home, and I try plugging in my laptop and the PS3 to the HDMI. PS3 was finicky to begin with, but once I got it to recognise it, it wound up with the same audio problems as the laptop -- SUPER MEGA DISTORTION CRACKLING. So I've tried a million settings, I've tried splitting the audio using the white/red plugs to the TV at the same time as using HDMI (with the PS3) -- but when I try switching to the Multi Sound Setting, it doesn't recognise the plugs. Before I got the HDMI to work with the PS3, I ONLY had the white/red cables being recognised... so I had audio coming through and as far as I could tell, it was perfect! We don't have cable hooked up yet, so I can't tell how it is with regular TV. 

So either it's a problem with the HDMI input itself or I have no fucking clue. The guy didn't have any external speakers himself, and he had his XBox 360 hooked up, so I doubt he was having problems. If something got shaken up during the ride home that's another thing. Also, I tried two different HDMI cables and same problem. 

I'm not against looking for external speakers, but I don't know if that's going to solve the problem if it still reads through the HDMI port. :faint: Any suggestions?
