I had a Philips that did the same thing when connected to the grounded catv
cable. The set was without a doubt defective in this regard. It would wipe
out any broadcast reception within a hundred feet of home.  When I returned
the set after only 2 or 3 days I tried twice to explain the problem and was
met with blank looks. My last explanation was that the <insert expletive>
thing shocked me!

I'd find a reason to return the set that didn't bother my conscience too
