Hi, maybe this will help:
1.  Are you watching US/imported DVDs?  If you are, you need to go to your DVD player's setup / system menu and (if the option is available) set Video Output to MULTI or AUTO instead of PAL.  This will stop nasty, cheap PAL converting going on.
2.  I know it sounds simple, but a lot of people don't check this: check that all of the connections on the back of the TV and equipment are pushed in fully (and, if possible, try different SCART leads).
3.  Is all your equipment plugged into one of those surge protected extension leads? It should be, to minimise interferance.
4.  Keep energy saving lightbulbs, wi-fi products, mobiles, computers and laptops away from the equipment as they can interefere.
Hope that helps!

Horizontal lines pop in sound on certain channels


Check all of your ground screws on the boards that you replaced. Sounds like that once the set is getting hot, the board is expanding and shorting out on the screws.

White wavey lines with dots or speckles.


The "white line" at the top of the screen is usually associated with "VBI Information" - the stuff that carries closed captioning, etc. This is usually only visible on upconverted SD material on HD channels and is usually the fault of the affiliate not doing the upconversion properly.

No Signal on Lubbock, TX channel 11.1 but receive all others


When the Government decided to make all stations go digital, most places we're telling about the change over. But what they forgot to mention to the ones like you that you may have to change your outside antenna. They make antenna just for picking up digital signal. So you may have to change that also. be Sure and check the cable going from the ant. to back of the converter box is in good condition or may have a break somewhere that could cause more trouble. If you see any bad places on the cable you may want to replace it now when you do the antenna.

Xbox 360 flickers across screen


it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.
