I have a new 40" Sony and it transmits and S7 signal  to battery radio over 200 feet over the whole 20 meter band with all inputs and outputs removed except power and the power has a brute force filter and RF filters on the line.    Sniffers say the RF is coming from inside the box. Sony was contacted all the way up the line and refuses to even look at it. Says its meets FCC standards. END OF DISCUSSION!!!   Don't buy a SONY.

By the way recent reports show that most all Plasma screens produce bad RFI. Take a battery driven  receiver with you to circuit city to check before you buy. NOT a bad idea for any appliance purchase now days.  Most manufacturers know the FCC is toothless and the only thing they do to comply is put on the sticker.
