    Anyone know where to get one in the UK? Have a temporary solution at the moment where I've connected the cable earth to my mains earth but it hasn't eliminated the problem entirely. Would like to do it properly. Have seen products in the use for around $60 but shipping costs a fortune.

    Michael.

    I doubt my cable operator (TV Cabo in Portugal) would be able to help me - they're pretty useless. Isolators are cetainly not fitted as standard whether with analog cable (like I have) or with their new (and completely cr@p) interactive digital service.

    I'm in the UK this week so I was hoping I could find something here. Might check out Tandy on Saturday to see if they have something useful, or at least the bits to let me make my own.

    Michael.
