I should think it highly likely that the two things ARE related.  You
are bound to see some effects if you try to run 110V 60Hz equipment
from Scottish 240V 50Hz.  OTOH, the voltage drop across the Atlantic
worries me somewhat - perhaps this is your problem.  It seems a long
way round for your electricity to take. ;-)

Don't know anything about Scottish Power - ours comes from Scottish
Hydro-Electric.  I should get yourself some good ol' fashioned American
