Tivo v6 sound/vision cuts out when fridge compressor switches off

Replacement Samsung TV earlier this year but suffered from intermittent blackouts or audio loss for less than a second, sometimes the TiVo v6 would reboot (turning circle). OK on aerial and on the old TV, but new tv / TiVo v6 setup seems sensitive to the drinks fridge compressor on a different socket but on same distributor board circuit.

Have tried placing ferrite rings on mains leads but so far no success! Apart from removing the fridge from the room, I don't know what else I can do!

Sounds like the fridge needs servicing, the rf (radio frequency) suppressor in the fridge is or has gone faulty.

Re: Tivo v6 sound/vision cuts out when fridge compressor switches off

If that's the case it must have coincided with the arrival of the new TV as the old one was unaffected. I'm wondering if a better HDMI cable would help (shielded?). But I'm clutching at straws now. Perhaps it's time for the drinks fridge has to go (handy for watching the footy though!) 😉

Hi the HDMI will have no baring on it as it's via the electric supply as Buffer6 has said.Regards Micky
