hey there,

if wrapping a bit of tpae around it stops the noise, it's mibbie gonna be a vibration thing..

the signal will have stopped cos the tape would be non conductive, so try a little tin foil or somthing, to make the connection secure but to allow the current to flow...

I have no idea if this'll work, but it sounds like it might :wink:

at a guess m8 there is some sort of feed back or electrical interference from the line or the tv, maybe some sort of suppressor is required, especily when it is affecting both boxes, ??
