That's interesting. I can see how that can happen (I believe neon - which is commonly used - has a pretty broad color spectrum), but I never really thought about that possibility.
I wonder how alarm motion sensors might affect them.
Since most of the two piece extenders use RF to allow greater distance, you can also have problems with other devices interfering with them. Even when all my equipment is off and the remotes are idle, I occasionally see the indicator blink on the receiver unit of the extender set I have. It doesn't seem to affect performance, but I can see where an RF-rich environment could pose an issue.
