I am using an LCD monitor on the composite output of a mini-BOB and I am getting a scrolling bar through the screen as well as some flickering. I can use component, composite or S-Video and they are all the same.

Is there anyway to get rid of this? Or do I have a bad Toaster card. I am using the VT3. The card is approximately 16 months old.

Not sure about the flickering output, but the 'scrolling bar' you mention is usually a result of a ground loop, where you have different outlets powering different devices in your equipment chain.

The scrolling bar you mention is usually from a ground loop.

From what side of the equipment is it coming from, the power to my computer or the monitor. Please elaborate.

Try putting your video equipment into a different outlet from your computer equipment. That tends to correct most of these faults.
