Reduce noice from cable hookup in HT system?

I have my Rotel Processor set up to do all of my A/V switching. When I hook up my cable (cablevision) from the wall to the digital box that they provide, I then send the cable through a 55dB built into my surge protector, before the line goes to my TV. I have been told that higher filters will affect video quality, but I still hear a low hum coming from the speakers when volume is at zero. When I do not use the processor for video switching, there is no hum at all. Any suggestions on reducing this noise further?

I had the same problem.Purchased power conditioners and filters. But later I found the cable ground( the co ax cable is grounded when enters the house) is broken by the lawn maintainence personal.
Please check that.
See that the cables are not running parallel to each other. I used a filter for 6 dollars called as Hum bucker for cable TV.Purchased from virtual dynamics.
Now there is no noise.
