Hello all,

Due to problems with the onboard sound from a Toshiba 42ZV635D TV I have recently added a Toshiba mini 3D soundbar.
This is connected by an optical audio cable out from the TV to the speaker.
Generally I am very pleased with the improved sound.
However, if I pause TV playback I can hear what sounds like water trickling.
Also (particularly noticeable with Family Guy!) there is often a background noise, a little like wind blowing.

Having been unable to find a cause and more importantly a solution I am hoping for just that on these forums.
It is a new cable and I have checked the connections which are secure.
Any help/guidance would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What sources do you have connected to your TV? I'm not sure what the problems are with the TV sound but maybe that is causing an issue with the optical audio as well. Can you try connecting a source directly to the soundbar via optical? See if the problem persists. That should help you narrow it down.
