I have a Tablo Dual that I have been using successfully for a year and a half. My antenna is outdoor and mounted on my roof and the Tablo is hard wired to my router. I recently got into amateur radio as a hobby and I have noticed the live tv will pixelate and freeze both on the Roku app and the web app when I am transmitting with 1 Watt of power or more on the 2 Meter Band (144-148mHz). When I transmit above 75 Watts or more power on my HF radio and the Tablo receiver is active for live tv or recordings, I have noticed the Tablo will stop and lights will flash as though it is resetting. I am wondering if the receiver is being overloaded by my signal and if there is anything I can change to prevent this. I have already attached ferrite beads to the power, coax, and ethernet on the Tablo in the hope of reducing stray RF. The pixelation and freezing still occurs if I use a radio outside house and away from the room the receiver is set up.
The lowest Over the Air TV channel in my area is broadcast around 180mHz. Does anyone have any experience with this? Has anyone identified a filter or set of filters I could put in line with the coax from my antenna to the Tablo that would attenuate these lower frequency signals? I am currently in an either or situation. Either I can enjoy my new hobby or I can stay off the air and keep my wife happy by letting her shows record. Any help or suggestions would be welcome.
