Lines going up my TV. GRRRRRR.

I've just moved into a new apartment and plugged in my entertainment center. My television, a 32 inch CRT Samsung which has always before had an excellent picture, now has these bars moving slowly upwards over the picture.

Lemmie describe my set up a little better. All on this little cart I have the TV, an RCA 5 channel surround audio receiver, a dvd player, a VCR, a PS2, the front 3 speakers of the surround sound system. Off to the side I have a sort of media center computer which plays my movies on the tv over s-video.
Everything plugs into this little s-video switch, and goes into the back of the TV from there.
My first thought is that I am having an issue with the quality of the electrical power, because that is really the only thing I can think of that could be different from my set up back at my old house. Perhaps the outlets here can't handle this many gadgets?
The power thing is sort of a guess. What do you think? I'm really wondering what the most likely cause is of this, and if there's anything I can do about it.
