What is a UPS? Does it have to be one of the expensive line conditioners? Could it be a problem with the TV and not the power?
No, you don't need an expensive one at all. Our local BJs Club has these for around $30. It may not be the same model but it's similar. A UPS will protect you again surges and dips in power to make sure you have ~110 going to your receiver/TV at all times. If you lose power it provides enough power to let you shut everything down safely. The smaller ones with smaller batteries give you less time. You're not really getting it for that reason so you don't need one of the more expensive ones with a bigger battery.
If that doesn't work you may have a bigger problem with the wiring in your home and you may consider calling in an electrician.
