I'm new here and I'm very sorry. I figured that since I figured out something, I should pass it on to the same poor schmuck who gets the same problem.
Can't post links...doh

(Using HDMI 1.3 copperhead)
I tried everything, even went over to the last years panny (42) and hooked the PS3 back up to it and no problems.
The problem ended up being the cable line coming into the house (Coax) I had put in my new power bar and the output went Directly into the back of my TV.
The electrical noise was causing the problem throughout my whole TV from that power bar
I know this because went I put the cable line directly to the TV and tried it again, no artifacts.
Now, the artifacts didn't really show up unless the screen was black.
I apologize if this is the wrong spot.
Have a good night, I have a cranky baby to wake up to tomorrow morning...
