View Full Version : SB2 control via microwave oven

Seriously. Our microwave oven can control the SB2. At least it seems to. I can't figure this one out. Sometimes (yes, it's an intermittent "feature"), when the microwave finishes heating and it beeps, it also restarts the currently playing song or simply stops it. My wife has reported that it also sometimes turns on the SB2. It used to freak her out until she realised the connection with the microwave oven.

The SB2 is about 5-6 meters (15-20 ft.?) away from the microwave oven and there is nearly line of sight. This is no joke. It really happens. Anyone have any idea why?

Because, amazingly enough, they are working on similar frequencies - but
I've never heard of it this bad.
I had interference, and changed to Chanel 1, and it is OK now...

I've heard of this before as a problem with channel 1, are you on channel 1?

I've got interferance all over the place (includin a microwave between my WAP & a SB2) and only get a stable & high speed connection on channel 11
