metal halide electronic ballast

Thought I would pass this along to some of the folks who have been
considering MH electronic ballast.  After looking into this issue, it
appears the Blueline e-ballast has had issues with X-10 controllers where it
interferes with electronic equipment.  According to Premium Aquatics, they
have had complaints on 100% of the ones sold.

It seems the Icecap is interfered with by X-10 controllers and experiences
flicker.  I looked on reef list as well as this one and lots of folks seem
to have experienced flicker issues.  Marine Depot suggested I call Icecap
because they had some sort of filter I could get to stop interference.  When
I called Icecap, both the sales and technical people told me they had no
such filter and had never heard of ANY problems with flicker whatsoever.
Found that interesting.   Unnerving but interesting.
