I am using this handy $8 device I picked up from Amazon to connect my wired speakers: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09874Q33W?ps ... ct_details
It "works" in the sense that audio comes out without any static (so I solved the original problem), however there is a constant "tug-of-war" between play/pause on all media (currently tested several online videos on YouTube and some other sites). You can hear how the audio plays and pauses 2-3 times A SECOND! And visually speaking, the play/pause button on screen reflects that! It is constantly playing and pausing, multiple times a second.
Not only that, but keys get disabled on my keyboard too!!! I have to disconnect it completely to stop my computer from spazzing out!!! It's almost as if it is constantly sending input TO the computer!!! It is rendered unusable!!!
It is as if the the speakers are sending signals in as well via the USB port to the computer, when really they are supposed only receive auditory output.
What is happening here? How do I solve this hardware issue?
