Hi,

Last night I finnaly hooked up and set up my 40gig PS3. When I connected it to my TV, the picture was distorted, as in a rolling bar thing in the background. I readjusted the settings on my TV, and it helped a little, but it's still there. The PS3 boards suggested that it may be a "ground" problem and that I buy a three to two prong adaptor. I wanted to check here with the gamespot crew for some advice.

I apologize in advance for my technical ignorance. :(
