Check Live TV is perfectly normal or not. Tuner reception problem can cause this ...

Live TV is normal. Only recorded programs playback is affected.
So the issue is likely that the interface that converts the SATA (internal) to USB (external) somehow only recognizes a Seagate (yes, inside the Maxtor Basics was a Seagate SATA) fully but not a WD SATA drive?
Try a different USB cable and try the other USB port on the MTV3000.

I put the WD 500G into a Seagate Expansion case and then it worked. No more lines. I put an older Hitachi 160G into the Maxtor Basicxs case and it also worked.
Somehow the Maxtor Basics 500G case is not fully compatible with a WD Blue 500G. I will go get a Seagate 500G later today and retest. Problem solved for the time being. Thanks for everyone's input.
