    Where can I get an extra that is more shielded? I might be able to get another atari however on it's got some pretty cheap items.

    thank you. I'm going over to my friend's house today and try out his cable. I tried Kaboom on his console and it worked fine, he just had a snowy picture because he use the switchbox and I use a coax adaptor. If atari is fine with his cable I'll replace the cable, but if I still get the problem I'll buy another atari.

It sounds like you may be having problems with the cable that connects to the tv, have you tried a new/different cable?
