Ground for Cable?

HDTV Technical - www.avsforum.com
Ever since I moved into my house I get random 60hz humm or slight static through my speakers. I have tested this with different amps and different speakers and I cannot get rid of the issue. I have assumed it was interference from the Cable in my house or a bad ground. Today while trouble shooting I noticed my Cable is not grounded at all outside. The wire come from the pole and into a service box. Inside the box is a Solid connector that connects the wire from pole to the wire going into my house. And there is also a grounding screw with a ground wire attached. I followed that ground wire down and it is cut about 2 feet from the ground and just hanging against my house. Is this a problem? Shouldn't it be grounded to the ground pole from my electrical?

I have digital cable in my area and I just don't know what the deal is. Could this be causing my problem? Should I ground it?
