this is without a doubt the stupidest thread begun here but i must satisfy myself on this question. i live in an apartment and the power supply here is not the best. when i turn on either the t.v. or my receiver the cieling lights flicker for an instant. an acquaintance of mine in this building plugs his t.v. into one of the outlets on his stove ! he says that this has improved the picture on his t.v.. is this possible? is he of diminished intellectual capacity? i do not want to try this with my equipment until i get some feedback from people i trust.
