I received my directv HD-DVR yesterday. Install was pretty smooth except the differences between the HDMI and the Component Video display.

The HDMI is a sharper, brighter and very intense but there is a problem with the display. I see lines scrolling up and down the screen on my Toshiba 34 inch. It isn't ghosting but definitely horizontal line shadows across my screen

When I use the component video, the image is nice but not as sharp as the HDMI but it does not have that issue with the horizontal line shadows on the screen.

I've talked to video-philes at my office and one guy tried to convince me that component video is the best I'll ever get and my problem is my cables. (wha???)
I'm using the cable that d* had in the box. I guess I could upgrade but will this solve the problem?

I'm going to have a friend bring over his LCD tv to see if his displays the lines using the HDMI cords. If so, then it is an issue with the D* HD-DVR and not my TV.

See my response in the DIRECTV HDTV Forum. I would say it is definitely a ground loop.
