Do not put the transmitter near the power supply.
It's quite easy to put it on top of the case right above it,don't.
Or the monitor.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say. Why can't I put the transmitter wherever I want? Is there a rash of people having problems with their transmitters because they didn't follow your advice?

Why should this post remain here? While I see how it could loosely be called a tip, I can not see in any way how it can be a trick.

I suspect that some power supplies and monitors may not be sheilded as well as others, and therefore may cause interference with wireless devices. This is simply due to the charged coils in the transformer, and cathode ray emissions.

I believe this post should remain as a tip for those people who are experiencing problems with wireless devices, but I can also see that it would belong in the hardware section.

At least that explanation makes sense... but I was really asking bluto to clarify his post, not for someone else to do it for him. If you were a novice user, would you have understood that?

Yeah, this is what I might 've posted a couple years ago:

What transmitter? All I have is a bunch of wires. Can I let them rub up against a box?

It would be a god tip if it was clearly stated.

:thumbsup: Sorry about that.

If I was a novice, I think I would hav been wondering why it shouldn't be by the Power supply or monitor.

Hehe...sorry. Won't happen again (I hope)
