My modded xbox works 100% everything is fine except when i plug in my ethernet cable to the back of it..I get these lines that cross the screen. I can ftp to my xbox just fine (100mb/full duplex) and i can watch some movies remotely from my computer harddrive with ease..but i have to deal with these lines all the time. As soon as i unplug the LAN cable from the back of the xbox, it all goes away....Does anyone eles have this problem?

here's a little food for thought. Two metals and heat produces electricity. I wonder if that's the deal. Also note, if you're using utp they are unshielded. This means that those heating ducts can act like a big antanae if they are not grounded properly. This can induce rf into your utp. Also, if your ducts are grounded in more than one place this can create a difference in potential... yep... voltage. So check it out. You're definitely getting rf somewhere. Maybe it's emi too from your fan..... who knows. Good luck finding it.
