Recently I have noticed that we are getting some interferrance on sky, particularly on MTV (my solution would be to stop watching sh!t programmes that MTV produce but that is another argument)

After assuming we were getting rain fade or issues were weather related my GF told me that is only happens when I am in the room, that is probably because my Ipad is surgically attached to me most of the time.

I thought that is might be the wi-fi or 3G so I switched that off and played around offline for a bit, the interference still happened, to my surprise after further investigation it appeared that the issues start when I turn my ZAGG (Logitech) folio case bluetooth keyboard on, as soon as I turn it off the interference is gone!

Just to throw some more confusion in to the mix, the same interference happens when I have my HTPC running in the back ground, however this has only started happening since I have installed Air Play It!

Has anyone run into issue with interferrance on sky caused by Bluetooth or Wi-fi ?

We have an old Pace decoder if that makes a difference, it is black.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...

Only had issues with DECT phones when placed in a specific location (near the STB). Move it a couple of cm either way and the interference (on specific channels) was gone.

I purchased a longer HDMI cable and moved the HTPC from next to the TV to 4m away and there is not interferance at all now, even when I am using my Ipad! This is really weird.
