common problem

I just went wireless with a $16 DWL-122 from Frys, which is one way of fixing the problem!

What you describe is incredibly common. Bringing TV cable into an A/V system usually ruins the ground plane of all the equipment that happens to be part of the circuit. I had problems with a few channels when using Ethernet to connect my Tivo to my home network, and obviously going wireless was a solution.

A surge protector probably won't do anything for you. You need to isolate the ground of your TV coax from the equipment that you're plugging it into, to prevent corruption of your currently (relatively?) stable ground plane.

Here's a do-it-yourself fix, although I'm sure you can find something pre-built online as well.
