scrolling horizontal lines on screen....interference?  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Need a bit of input on this one. I have a Benq projector being fed by both an htpc and a stand alone DVD player. Both are running through a vga switch and vga amplifier, the dvd player is connected via a component to VGA cable while the htpc is strictly VGA. With the standalone DVD player I am getting barely visible horizontal lines that move slowly up the screen every few seconds. With the PC I am getting the same thing only it is refresh rate dependant. At 60hz it's very visible, at 100hz it's barely visible but still there. Either way the lines from the htpc scroll alot faster than with the DVD player. Is this some sort of electrical interference problem? Any help is appreciated.

probably a ground loop:

do a seach for this topic and you will find a lot of info

Is this an LCD BenQ, probably not, but if so, it might be vertical banding.

No, Verticalbanding is a fixed vertical texturing that you can see on LCDs, not scrolling horizontal lines.

Sounds like a ground loop, because of the 60hz remark which is the freq of AC.

Well, I found the source of the problem (sort of). I have a PVR-150 card in the computer and I found as soon as I disconnected the coax, the lines went away. I'll have to see if I can localize it any further but at least I can watch movies without being distracted now. :) Thanks for the assistance!
