View Full Version : Interference from wireless speakers

I have a home cinema set-up with wireless rear speakers (Panasonic SC-PT350WEBS) and as soon as I turn it on my SB3 stops working (stuttering audio, slow menus).

I can disconnect the wi-fi adapter from the back of the Panasonic unit and, hey presto, the SB3 works again.

Am I able to change the Wi-Fi channel used by the SB3, the router or the Panasonic unit so they don't interfere with each other?

Best change the channel on the router, the SB3 will follow.

However wireless speakers are pretty bad...the sound quality is usually poor and the transmitter may be more of a "shotgun" in terms of tuning, it may interfere across so broad a spectrum that changing channels may not help.

Hello thekirbyfake!

Did you ever get your situation resolved?

I have just purchased a Panasonic SC-PT865W Home Theatre, which has wireless speakers. I'm finding the same problem as you - only a bit worse. Anytime the wireless module is plugged into the back of the Panasonic unit, my SqueezeBox 2 loses wifi connection immediately, and won't reconnect.

The Squeezebox is about 70cm away from the transmitter on the Panasonic - and given the size of the cabinet I am using, and the length of the optical cable that I have connecting the two, I can't really seperate them any further.

At the moment I'm stuck with only using the front two speakers when using my Squeezebox, and then plugging the wireless module back in when I want to watch movies. Not a great solution really.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers!
Mike
