NEWS > Pre-Super Bowl Deals on Cord Cutting Gear
With the Super Bowl just around the corner, now is a great time to score a deal on some new cord cutting gear including:
Q&A > Why Does My Cordless Phone Interfere with Streaming?
This week's question comes from Rich who asks, "Why do our Tablo DVR and other streaming TV services seem to cut out when our cordless phone rings or when you're talking on it?"
Along with baby monitors and garage door openers, cordless phones are a common source of interference for WiFi-enabled gadgets that are connected to the commonly used 2.4Ghz frequency.
If your cordless phone's base station is parked next to your WiFi router or other cord cutting gear, move it further away.
You can also reduce potential interference by connecting your Tablo DVR and other streaming devices to the 5Ghz WiFi band, as long as they're not too far away from your WiFi router.
