Hello all,

I have a 720p plasma TV. I have the TV plugged into the wall and that is it: No cable box, DVD player, etc.

The TV is used strictly for my Xbox 360.

I just started to notice that the picture looks awful at certain times: it looks very blurry.

Is there a device that I can plug the TV into so my games look better? When I watch DVD's on my 360, they look even worse than certain videogames.

P.S. I also own a Wii that I rarely use. and I noticed that whenever I have a black background up, annoying white lines scroll on the screen.

Thanks everyone!

That's interference. I had the same problem on a Wii connected to a poorly grounded outlet.

How are you connecting the 360 to the TV?

Thanks for the response!

I'm using the Hi-Def cables (green, blue, red for video, red and white for audio) into the ports on the back of the TV.

I had an electrician out a few weeks ago for another issue, and he looked at the TV. He dismissed the issue, saying something must be wrong with the TV, and not the outlet.

So are all of my issues with the electrical outlet (interference)? How can I remedy this?

Thank you again.
