http://www.dugpa.com is a good place to read up on lynch news. i don't think FWWM bombed because it had scenes cut to get the run time down. it bombed because it was too dark for many people & they expected it to be the same as the TV series. personally i think it's one of the best films i've seen.

one thing to try would be to run the cable through a DI (direct inject) box in to a microphone input on your audio mixer. If you can find a DI box with an earth lift switch you can experiment with this setting. This can completely get rid of hum if it's caused by difference in earth potentials. Mayb...

i feel that way about most films i see, life's to short to watch the same movies over & over. i stopped buying dvds for that same reason, all they will do is sit there in the cases by the tv!
