We've bought an older home with 2 wire receptacles. We need a 3 wire (grounded) receptacle to use our new TV and satellite receiver. Is there a safe way of using these items with out the cost of re-wiring?
If the receiver needs a real ground then going the GFI protection route is NOT adequate. It is code legal and safe, but does NOT provide a valid grounding path.
For this the only option is to provide a real ground, which in most cases simply means running a new circuit and receptacle to the location. You do not need to "re-wire" anything, just add new.
