You sure do like those electronic gadgets to tweak the image between the camera and the screen. Do you have a cabinet or something to house your enhancement devices in while your viewing?

DVE does almost the same except that proc-amp is the primary goal and occasionally it does the reversal of macrovision's damage.
This brings up an interesting question: a videocam, modified (even you "push" it to the limit) or unmodified, is supposed to still deliver a NTSC-compliant signal. Why that device is not is beyond me.

A similar device (but with no astro video oriented modifications) is

My Xtreme is giving off some interference that passes through the image. I used video smoothing in Miloslick, but this band of interference passes through every couple seconds. I was hoping this device would eliminate it, but hasn't. It stinks when the interference band is right over my object when I take a snapshot. I have excellent quality cables and am on an AC-powered setup.

The rolling interference is very likely 60hz noise from the AC. It can often be difficult to get rid of.
Try a different AC 12v power supply for the camera. Are you using the model that came with the camera? The original is a nice little 12v switching supply that puts out something like 12.1v. They have been known to fail but in general they're a nice clean power source for the camera.
Try reversing any AC plugs (including any of the wall wart style power supplies) that can be reversed.
Try a 12v battery for just the camera as a trouble shooting step.
Separate the power lines (either AC or DC) from the video cables when they are running parallel (don't bundle them together). It's usually ok to have them cross at 90°, but for the purposes of troubleshooting a noise problem I would even avoid that.
Even the best cables can sometimes be the cause too ... I would after trying some of the power ideas also swap out some of the video cables.

I use a 'power tank' I got from Costco exclusively for the camera power to ensure there is no noise from AC power.
