Wavy lines when connected via RCA

Hi all,


I'm trying to setup my WD Live TV Hub to a VERY old tv. I'm using the old RCA cable (Yellow, Red, White).


I'm connecting it to a satelite box because it's the only place with inputs.

I've set the settings to Composite (PAL) and I get a picture. However there's wavy lines through it that I can't get rid of no matter what settings I choose. I've tried NTSC and the picture changes but there's still wavy lines, and a little worse.


Does anyone have any idea how I might solve this? Due to the age of the TV I don't have much choice in terms of using HDMI or any other cable. Frustrating to be so close with the picture but still unwatchable.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

If the TV is that old it might be a problem with the TV itself, have you tried connecting another device to the TV or have you connected the WD TV to another TV using the RCA cables to check if the problem continues?

How is your satellite box connected to your TV?
