CFL's interfering with Ntl set top box signals?

    A near neighbour claims that CFL's (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) can interrupt the signal from a Ntl <u></u>cable<u></u>set top box when in close proximity.

    This is news to me. I wouldn't have thought there's much electromagnetic interference from one lamp and surely not enough to affect a product like this.

    Anyone else heard of this or is it an urban myth?

    I would have thought it unlikely with a wired box, but they certainly play havock with my amateur radio equipment. They often generate radio frequency interference. I have to turn all mine off if I want to talk. Some I have had have got worse as they age.
