Question about Televison & Video
One snowy channel can be caused by lots of issues, if it is on all tv's in your house, then there is a possibility that you have moisture in your "drop" line to the house or something is wrong in the trasmission lines to your home, but this will usually affect multiple channels in the same freqency range.
If it is only on 1 tv, then you may have a bad jumper cable from wall to tv, or vcr to tv ect.. you may have a bad connector on the feed cable or jumper cables, you may have a bad splitter partially blocking that frequency, or a bad "barrel" / wall plate partially blocking that frequency, the tuner in the tv may be going bad.
My advice is if it is only on 1 tv then move that tv to another room where the channel is fine... see if the problem follows the tv. if it does then you know you have a issue with the tv, if not then move another tv into the room with the problem and see if it still exists. If so start replacing jumper wires 1 by 1 making sure everything is hand tight.
If the problem is in the entire home, then i would locate the main cable input to your home on the outside of your home, dissconnect it from it's ground block / splitter and take a tv outside with an extention cord.. plug it directly into the tv.. if you still have the problem on that channel then you can call your cable company armed with that information. And have them send a tech out.
