Its been a long time since Ive posted, but I need your thoughts on this.

I have a TSU6000 and a Russound SaphIR system.

They have always worked very well together. Last year, i bought a Mitsu LCD that causes interference with the SaphIR system. It always took until the TV was sufficiently warmed up before the interference would subside.

My wife, after much chiding, convinced me to buy a Plasma/CFL compatible eye for the Russound, so I finally ordered one.

Have installed it and the system dont work so good. So, I went to the Russound website and they say compatibility with DirecTV receivers (the main culprit of my problems) is a known issue. They recommend installing a 680-ohm, 1/4 watt resitor inline with the transmitter eye off the connecting block on the russound. Ive done that. Works a tiny bit better, but not much.

I am not going thru my CCF and increasing the delay from the standard 0.1ms to 0.3 on all my channel macros hoping that by slowing down the signal transmission, the DirecTV receiver will be more cooperative.

Do you have any experience/thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance

I have seen this problem when sony first released their flat screens , is there any chance you can move the IR receiver furthur away from the TV.

You first need to find out if its radiated interferance or noise from the power supply.

Place a cover over the IR receiver and see if the interferance has gone away. if it has you may be able to make a cover with about a 4mm Dia hole in it.

if it noise from the power supply you need to move the IR reciver further away from the TV

I think that GoPronto pretty much has it covered.

I have issues with a Motorola cable box (Verizon FIOS) these days and had to use black electrical tape with a pinhole to make things work right as IR signal was too hot.
