Thanks for the quick response.
The unit is plugged into a surge protector from the wall outlet. The TV doesn't have a USB outlet. The TV is on the older side compared to most but like I said, I have other components that have no problems.
I tried using the device on another TV and it was better, but not completely perfect.
When I first set up the device, the static streaks were not constant, but would come across the screen every few minutes, but in the last few days it has gotten way worse, to the point where the picture will freeze or look like there are multiple pictures on top of each other (if that makes sense. I'm not sure how else to describe it).
