Your point about filtering at the STB can be effective in certain cases, but
never on the network feed.  
Thanks & 73,

What power level are you running, what modes, what kind of antennas & feed

You might try filtering at the RG (residential gateway) in addition to the
NID (outside box).  Possibly also on the line (coax?) to the set top box
(STB).  Have you tried disconnecting other connections to the RG?  (local
telephone, local networking)

Is the RG resetting or are you just seeing TV freeze?  (RG resets make the
red light flash and take about 2 minutes to come back.)  I have worked to
get my RG reasonably tolerant of 80 & 40 M at 100W power.  (No 160M here
yet.)  But then I had a problem on 40 M where the TV was freezing even
though the RG was working OK, and this was at low ~10W power.  It turns out
the STB can be very sensitive and may need filtering on its input cable.
That got me back to ~100W power level.  Don't ask about QRO...

Good luck, 73
