Re: X1 receiver interference

It’s possible there’s backfeeding through the electricity

Re: X1 receiver interference

If that is the case, how do we check and what to do about it.  This did not happen with Dish.

Maybe an electrician to check your grounding/wiring. I had a customer once that their boxes did the same thing when they used a microwave

Re: X1 receiver interference

Why would it interfere with the X1 receiver but not the DISH receiver? Is the X1 box not properly shielded?

Re: X1 receiver interference

So out of frustration, I added a diplexer between the X1 box and the wall and this has resoloved the issue. No pixilation and no RF interference from the recliner motors.
