I thought I read here a few weeks ago that the sunflares would be disrupting our cable/digital tv soon. Mine has been acting up and yesterday I was
reading about the biggest sun spot on the sun in 11 years. I did a search on it but could not find the thread.
Your cable TV cable is shielded and shouldn't be affected by sunspots. If you have satellite TV it will be. If you have just a few channels that
are acting weird, they may be received by your cable company via satellite and could be messed up.
You can always check with your cable company. When I worked for a local cable company they did have a listing of channels and times affected. We
were told that it did interfere with the sattelite which sent the signals of certain channels at certain times. This only occured at certain times of
the year, for maybe a week or two.
