Static is a very well documented issue, try searching the archives. 
But i belive it has something to do with the cards no being tuned. 
Load the ptune.pl or ptune-ui.pl utility to set the input and try
changeing chanels.  My problem is usualy that the card is not using
the tuner but some other input sorce.  (not sure how the 150s work
with that though).
