    My PS3 sits under my tv along with my Sky box.

    Being tight, i dont pay Sky for multiroom, instead using an infrared transmitter and receiver to send the signal upstairs.
    This works perfectly until i turn on the sixaxis, at which point the picture upstairs goes unwatchably fuzzy.

    I didnt think there would be interference as the two methods (Bluetooth and Infrared) are different.

    Does this sound normal?

    I don't think you do. I think you use a radio frequency transmitter that works as an infrared relay and AV transmitter.

    Any way for this not to interfere?

    Don't think so, can you change the frequency of the AV transmitter?

    Change the frequency of the transmitter if you can. Does it have a "channel" changer? Probably be a bunch of switches or something.

    there are 4 channels on the back of it but they range from gentle blizzard interference to total train-wreck.

    That's as good as you're going to get then, cos the controller freq is fixed.

    Any suggestions for other ways to transmit the picture?

    turn on blutooth on your phone, send a pic to another phone over blutooth, see if the same thing happens.

    if it doesn't, something's b0rked

    can you get wired controllers for the PS3 at all ?

    Yep, I have one for sale if you want. Looks exactly the same as the wireless ones.

    hehe let me guess, it's got a cable coming out of the top?

    Do you run a wireless network? My Sky transmitter completely blocked my wireless and is no longer used.

    FCUTA!
