Swap your HDMI cables from Direct TV to your DVD player. If trouble follows it's the cable. If trouble doesn't follow it's your Direct TV converter.

Does sound like a ground loop. Try rearranging the was things are plugged in. Ideally, you want a single appropriately rated surge-suppressed outlet strip and everything plugged in there.

Or it could be a bad HDMI cable :thumbsup:
