So I have a weird question. Our living room and bathroom and seperated by one wall. Meaning the cable box/tv are back up against he wall that the bathroom electrical is on. When we go to the bathroom and run a hair dryer, a water floss pick, or anythign in the electrical outlets the signal in the living room gets distorted to the cable box and eventually just cuts it out completly. It is instant as soon as it gets powered on signal gets cut. I know it is cross talk somewhere just do not know where to even start. Any ideas?
The 60Hz from electrical noise wouldn't cause tiling on your cable since it is far lower than the operating frequencies the coax is using. I would toss a voltmeter on the outlet that the box is plugged into and turn on some items in your bathroom to see if you are running into a possible under-voltage situation. It also wouldn't hurt to put a socket tester in to see if there are any obvious wiring problems.
