    Hello all, I need some help.
    I have a white bar that moves from left to right (when you are sitting in front of the tv). This white line only comes on with my dvd player. The tv is a mitsb. tosh dvd player, and Motorola digital cable, sony vcr. I have narrowed the white line down to, the tv/vcr out on the cable box to the vcr in on the vcr. When I unplug this cable the line goes away.
    I have tried to use the rf filter on my panamax 1500, but it didn't work.
    Does anybody else have a detailed description of what I need to do to eliminate this white line, I know I could every time I watch a movie unplug the cable, but I don't want to do this.
    Thanks
    Rhett

    Sounds like the dreaded ground loop, probably from your cable box as you seem to have figured out. There's supposed to be a box called a ground isolator (?) you can get to fix this but have not been able to find one yet (I have the same problem watching cable). If I find them will post here.
