I just wanted to canvas opinions on who has interference issues with plasma TV's and their ADSL2+? And what have you done to eliminate it?
My main TV is a 2011 Panasonic plasma display and it's mounted on the wall in the lounge using it's own fused spur (no ferrite cores). It is wired to the router in the loft via a direct length of cat5e cable with a ferrite core at the TV end.
I have an 8 port switch mounted about 4 feet below it that has the Sky box, PS3, Blu-ray player and Xbox360 plugged into it. This again is connected directly to the router in the loft via a length of cat5e cable. No ferrite core.
The router is in the loft and connected directly to the master socket (also in the loft) via a Solwise 'high performance' RJ11 cable and ADSLnation filtered faceplate. The cable from the drop wire to the master socket is a single piece of cat5e cable.
The router power cable has a ferrite core around it, as does the extension power block that the router is plugged into.
Things I plan on trying:
1. Ferrite core around the TV power cable. Difficult as I'll need to take the TV off the wall and it's a (large) 2 man job.
2. Make a foil 'tray' for the router to sit in. How effective will this be considering I need to do it and not hinder the wireless antennas?
Any suggestions and advice woul be much appreciated.
