Not sure if this is in the right section but oh well
I just moved to a small town in TN. Our TV/internet/phone provider routes their services through cat5 cable in the house. They call it IPTV for those that know. They use DSL Modem/Router combo units(2 of them) and have split the signal up into the different lines running to the rooms for TV. The routers are located beside my desktop. This is the first time I have used this type of service and I have always used cable.
Anyway, I noticed the other night that the TV signal was breaking up badly much like satellite does when bad weather comes through. I said oh well, I will go play a game on the PC. I turn my rig on and then when I turn my speakers on all of a sudden i hear what you would call radio communications. Sounds like its CB, 2-way, or something of the sort. I never dealt with that stuff before so I don't know exactly how it works. So as I was sitting here listening to this guy talk I noticed that every time I would I hear him talk is when the TV image would distort. The catch is that I could not hear him through the TV but only on my computer speakers or headphones.
I have contacted our service provider and so far I have gotten we have had this happen before type deal. They are coming out Thurs or Fri to check it out but I do not think they will hear anything because it seems to only happen in the evening. It also seems to be the same person every time. Has anyone ever dealth with this type of thing before? I was gonna suggest they install filters on the lines but I'm not even sure if that even exsists. Anyway, thanks for looking
