These tend to not work very well at all, I would not recommend this solution.

comment Circuit split within panel
It's not dangerous, but it's definitely non-standard, and it might not be to code (I'm not sure). From what little I know about audio electronics, I believe this could be causing your line interference.

comment Could bad grounding cause sparks and fire when connecting the cable box and TV?
WTF!? I'm not normally in favor of a sue-happy culture, but I think this is one of the times where contacting a lawyer is called for. Everyone makes mistakes, but this is pure negligence. For the safety of you and others, that electrician should never be allowed to wire another house again!

comment Why is the neutral wire the same size as hot wire in a 3C cable?
"This is why a straight 240V circuit requires no neutral wire. It is a 100% balanced line-to-line circuit." - This statement is confusing. If there were a neutral wire, it wouldn't carry a current, but it's not because both legs are balanced; it's because the neutral wouldn't be connected to anything (which is why both legs are balanced...)

comment New Fan Switch Grounding Cable issues
If the breaker is popping when you connect the ground wire to ground, but not when the ground-wire isn't connected, it means there is a short to ground somewhere. It also means the breaker/ground-wire are doing their jobs, and may have just saved someone's life.
