Hi guys, I have a set of speakers that always has a static noise when I play something on the TV. When initially turning on the TV it does not make much of a static/hissing noise (maybe very slightly) but as soon as I put on Netflix and play something the hissing starts. I've actually purchased a ground loop isolator to help fix this problem but still no luck. There is no static noise when using the speakers on the TV itself. Any idea what else might be wrong?

Quite annoying those noise issues. Ground loop isolators are related to grounding issues and those tend to generate hum or low freq buzzing and not hissing. Hissing can be many things such as bad/crappy amplification, wire issues, interference issues and possibly power issues. Can you describe how your speakers are connected (the whole chain) and also try to move them away from tv or other signal transmitting devices just to test it out?

Is there a wireless router and/or modem nearby? It could introduce noise when active, such as streaming Netflix.
