Hi this has been driving me mad for over a year now. I have a virgin tivo box in bedroom situated near a long radiator the cabling of which runs underneath via a splitter towards my modem. I have been getting a loud ''bubbling'' sound from the radiator. I thought it was air in the system and even replaced the radiator. This morning at 3am I finally discovered hat every time i heard the ''bubble'' the tivo box appeared to take a surge of power. upon switching off the Tivo box the noise that has been driving me bonkers stopped. Any Ideas ???... Could the Splitter be faulty, cable shielding issue?? Any help appreciated before I call for a tech
You shouldn't get noise from any passive device in the coax runs (splitters, attenuators, isolators). Active splitters & HDUs are easy to spot as there has to be mains fed into the system somewhere on the customers property.
