Hey guys. Do we have anyone here who knows a lot about home electric? Long story short, I’ve been having internet issues, and while Spectrum was out here, they noticed that I am getting some electrical bleeding into my coax lines and its causing excess noise and poorer quality signal. We basically ruled out that it’s coming from the outside, the lines coming into the house are clean but it’s somewhere in the house. I don’t doubt the diagnosis because we pretty much proved it, and he wasn’t aware of this but I had noticed that on my analog HD Antenna, I’ve been getting picture glitching. I thought it was maybe the antenna going bad, but it fits perfect with the symptoms my cable modem is seeing.
I am planning on calling an electrician to help me find this, however I wanted to know if anyone here could maybe help prepare me for things to look out for or to make sure I don’t get taken for a ride. Maybe there’s something simple I can do that I just don’t know about. For reference, the cable tech was using a foreign voltage detector and it was hitting 50 just touching the coax line in the house. He did replace the couplers on all lines coming into the house just to rule out any funny connections.
