I experienced a similar static issue when i removed the metal layer that resides under the xbox lid. This is usually done to allow you to view the insides or on window mods (done alot on crystal xbox's). It caused interference when watching tv but with the xbox still switched on. On xbox channel though (AV) i observed no interference.
I don't know if this is due to the harddisk make etc but that metal layer under the lid must offer sheilding. I put the metal layer back and problem solved watch tv when xbox is on with no interference.
Does your xbox have the sheilding present under the lid?
When the xbox is switched off the static disappears?
when on AV (xbox channel) no static is visable?
May just be certain tvs or harddisks or somthing else, sure someone can explain this static more technically :-)
