    I wasn't bashing your set up, I'm sure lots of people use what you're using. Just trying to help menner, not you. I seems that that type of video interference happens with that type of set up, never saw where a USB HDD caused that problem. Sometimes just moving the hard drive away from the TV does not work, the interference travels thru the wires.

    I agree that the passports are a good group of HDD's to use, and I would recommend them, I simply meant that you shouldn't exclude a particular type of HDD's because they could cause interference. I was also trying to say that interference can be avoided. If the HDD is interfering with the TV directly, you can move it away from the TV, and if the HDD is causing interference through the wire, you should shorten or coil all the excess wire. This will greatly reduce the chance of interference.

    I'm an electrician and know for a fact improper shielding around certain cables/wires can cause interference.
