Hello, I have a weird problem with my new Plasma TV.
I have it connected to a home theater system. My system is a kenwood receiver. It has 150w speakers, subwoofer, kenwood DVD player, and a Dish network DVR all connected to this receiver.
I'm running a monster video cable from the video port in the receiver, directly to the video port in back of the LG Plasma TV.
Everything works fine, but now I have this transparent vertical bar that floats slowly from the bottom of the screen, to the top.
I know for a fact there isn't a problem with the TV itself. At first I had the TV directly plugged into my DVR alone, and it worked fine. But now that I have the TV plugged into my home theater setup, I get the horizontal bar.
Is it some kind of intereference? Or, would running a S-video connection from the receiver to the TV fix it?

Look into the TV's audio controls. If it was my setup, I'd NOT send audio through the TV to the hifi, nor video through the hifi to the TV. Additional hops and interconnects cause problems even though they're theoretically transparent.
If your surround system has either white/red phono connectors or scart marked as "aux in" or "tv in" or similar, and the TV has a headphone out socket, then you could use these. The cable required will be available on e-bay or a good electronic stockist.
I bought the optical audio cable ($15 WalMart) and use the Digital In on the DVD player to play the sound through the surround system and turned the TV speakers off. Works great! The optial audio has square ends and looks transparent with just one round shaped cable that goes from the TV to the back of the DVD player.
