I am a DirecTv customer. I am getting S-9 interference on 75 Meters from the DirecTv equipment installed in my home. I have a DirecTv receiver/recorder. When I remove all a.c. power from this DirecTv device, the interference is gone.

Any suggestions?

I can sympathize with you Steve because I have the same problem with my two DTV receivers. I tried wrapping the ac line cord around a ferrite split core and it had no affect at all. I'm still working on it If I find a soultion I'll let you know.

Steve,
Thanks for your question about RFI from DirecTV. I have the same level of noise on 75 meters. Now I have a place to start my search.
