    Since you just bought it and it doesn't work properly with any DVD player or the cox box I would return it for a new one. At least they can check it out at the store if you got it locally-not online. Did you try a different set of cables with the DVD players?

    How is your dish network connected to the TV? If it's component or simply Audio-Video cables, then try connecting the DVD to that connection. If there's no hum there(you know that connection is good)then it's the TV's fault on the other connection and return it. Is everything plugged into the same wall outlet? You could also unplug everything from the power source except TV and DVD player and see if the hum's still there.

    but the problem is that thing worked fine for some time as i didn't checked by connecting to either dvd player or cable and its already past 14 days. i was lucky that i got the warranty.but i want to use it at least for some time. and if i return now i will get the same crappy olevia . so my plan is to return at the end of this year. get my money back in form of gift cards and get good brand like sony. for the time being is there a way i could connect it to some external speakers to get rid of hum sound.thanks

    By the end of the year, the TV will be at least 8mo old. If you bring it in all they aree going to do is fix it, if there is any warranty left. They are surely not going to give you any credit for a new TV. If you think it is a crappy TV why did you buy it in the first place? JM2C

    Circuit City has a 30 day return policy on Televisions. http://www.circuitcity.com/rpsm/cat/-13414/edOid/105452/rpem/ccd/lookLearn.do
    I would return it, because on their protection plans on televisions their first try to repair the tv, than if it can't be fixed they try to give you a replacement if that same tv is still in stock. And last they will give you a gift card if that tv is not in stock. Or you could just get your money back and by a different tv. Their is no restocking fees on televisions

    The buzz sound is coming from your speakers, it's a common problem with the Olevia 32" because i had the same tv.. If you go to the settings and adjust the brightness from normal to the highest setting which is bright the buzzing goes away, yes it's annoying but i've heard that Olevia hasn't completely solved the problems with any of there newer models either..
