Please could you tell me if it is in anyway dangerous? e.g. Fire Hazard, Electrocution,
If you have a receptacle controlled by a switch, then the TV would be turned off if whenever you turned that switch to the off position. Somtimes these receptacles are split-wired so that only one-half of the receptacle is controlled by the switch. . .i.e. The top half of the duplex receptacle is controlled by the switch while the bottom half is always energized.
This however should not cause the TV's simply to change channels. And also, does this happen when ANY switch is used? (even a switch in another room or area)? If so, we may need some more information about your situation.
Are your lites flourescent? Inductive kick from de-energizing the ballast could be cause the voltage surge to affect the TV.
