I stand by my original statement.

Now, whether or not to help the other guy out is another matter and would 
depend on the surrounding circumstances, most importantly   the attitude of the 
complaining party.   In the past I've usually tried the proactive approach as 
you call it but with little success, sorry to say.   The usual response I've 
encountered is something along the line of "...my (expensive) stuff was working 
just fine until you came along, so shut your junk off now!" followed by 
out-and-out refusals to let me anywhere close to their TV, telephone, Hi Fi, etc.   
I even offered several interference free telephones to one guy who refused to 
even give them a try ("I don't want your damm phones!").

If the guy's wife is your wife's best friend ya gotta play nice, of course.   
Ditto if he's your landlord, boss, your minister, etc., but I personally 
wouldn't touch anyone's expensive music and/or entertainment systems.
