Zebra TV

I recently installed a 32" Lcd flat panel in my c385. Tv has a digital antenna at the masthead plus a cd/dvd player down below. Tv is powered by a pure sinewave inverter.
Because of a screwup at the yard....we are using coax for video feed from tv to the nav station where the dvd is rca cables. There is a rca-coax converter installed ( also powered from the inverter) from the dvd to tv. When the dvd player is used, a striped interference pattern is displayed. See pic. Oddly enough the antenna signal and tv picture from the local stations is crystal clear. I have tried powering both the tv and the converter from straight shorepower, bypassing the change. This problem didnt show up until the inverter was installed. I would greatly appreciate any help from the wizards out there.
