    Interference from input on carputer with XM

    I have my XM radio running into the input port on my sound card but you can hear in the background the computer thinking or something, sounds like electric interference. If I turn the music up you dont hear it because its drained out. If I mute the input it stops. Its like you can hear the computer thinking. Any thought on how to fix this??? Maybe a USB sound car pluged into the USB hub I have under my seat? I hear that will drain my CPU since I only have a 1ghz VIA CPU.

    Thanks in advance for your advice! :-)

    There is an entire thread about troubleshooting audio system noise in the Car Audio forum.
    Basically you need to isolate the source of the noise and take steps to rectify it.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    The source of the issue is the computer. I know if it was just a regular car stereo system I could put a noise filter inline but since this is a carputer I have no idea how to fix it.
