Random channel change

Does anyone have problems with random channel changes? When got up this morning we found that when we turned on the box it was on an adult channel. Box was in standby mode when we got up. Someone mentioned on a forum about their box randomly changing channels whilst in standby and was told it was interferance from energy saving bulbs. Any ideas?

Re: Random channel change

Was the adult channel blocked by a PIN or did it have a picture?

Seems strange. Have looked through Google and it says a lot about energy saving bulbs interfering with virginmedia boxes. Hope you can help 👍

My wife bought a new lamp yesterday and placed a energy saving bulbs in it. It's sat about 6ft from the box.
