I turn down the volume to its lowest.
I set the audio output to external.
May be other ways.
This is actually my first TV, as my computer has served all my media purposes up to this point. I pretty much love it right out of the box, I just have a few questions on some minor things I can't figure out.
When I have it on mute, there's a floating mute box that never leaves the screen until it's unmuted. Sometimes I like to keep a game on mute and hope there's a way to get rid of this.
If I'm watching something from media/USB mode and want to pause it and switch to TV (I have just an antenna right now), and go back to media, it resets what I was watching. I'm hoping there's a way to keep it where I left off somehow. I'm also wondering if there's any way to change the display of the files on my USB stick. Some of the files have very long file names and it takes forever for the TV to auto scroll through a long title.
I think that's about it for now. I'm already itching to bump up to 40" but I'd like to play with this for a while. Any help/tips appreciated.
