    Interference - from somewhere!

    2 days ago, at exactly 10:58pm we started getting static interference on our slave TV's (I have 2 linked to a master via Televes boxes). Thereafter, at precisely 2 minute intervals, the static interupts the signal all through the night until the next morning. It happens now every night at the same time. I presume something has started up somewhere that is interupting my internal wireless system but it is impossible to find out what it could be and it renders the slave TV's unusable after 10:58pm. The master TV (the one directly attached to the dish) is not affected at all.

    Is there anyway I can block whatever's causing the problem or change the frequency on the Televes boxes or has anyone any other suggestions please - driving us nuts!

    Video senders are using sold for one of two frequency groups.
    The 2.4,ghz ones can get interference from a number of things, from microwave ovens, to other wireless devices like wifi internet signals, or Bluetooth devices.
    5ghz ones operate on less common frequencies, so are less susceptible to interference.

    SO it wouldsuggest that somewhere, at 1058pm some wireless device is operating close to your AV senders- do you use a wifi tablet or other mobile device (kindle,or mobile etc) connected to wifi in the area? or does someone else?
