There have been quite a few cases before on the older decoders where a voltage potential between decoders and TVs have been found, even when connected to the same power socket.

I would check for:

(1) arcing on the multiplug
(2) replace the multiplug with a surge protected one such as sold by Clearline for home entertainment systems.
(3) Use a multimeter to see if there is a potential difference between decoders and TV chassis when any connecting cables are disconnected.
(4) Try and always connect 2 pin power plugs the same way round with the Live and neutral always the same for all devices.

Do you experience any other major surges on the power feeds to other appliances?
