    While I thought the signal jammer device seemed plausible for disabling wireless cameras, I don't understand why Natalia's hearing aid would be affected. Can hearing aids get interference from EM devices? And why would she get interference from the microphone that Eric was wearing? I thought his microphone was saving to tape, not being transmitted via a signal (after all, he did promise to "edit out" various things).

    On a related note, I can believe that the jewelry store would have wireless cameras, but the lab? I would expect the cameras in the evidence room to be hard-wired.

    And another thing: I don't understand the idea of using the jammer to cover up the evidence room robbery of the diamonds. Don't those cameras get saved to tape/disc/whatever? Why can't they just look back to when the interference started and see who turned on the jammer?

    I know from personal experience that EM devices will interfere with hearing aids, especially those with magnetic t-coils, which are useful for listening on telephones. I'd get this low annoying buzz every time I walked past one.

    Way over-thinking this, dawg. CSI:Miami is about implausible plots and eye candy. On that score, it's 9+/10. :)

    This show is still on the air? Now that I have HDTV, I might watch it again.

    Anyone else wonder why they left us hanging on who jammed the lab cameras and stole all the diamonds?
    Nothing in the coming attractions that showed they were going to address this in the next ep either.

    No, not yet....but that's good news because I hate loose ends :)

    Edit : OK, just watched this week's ep and it didn't answer anything for me.
    Explosion at the end, Delko gets knocked over and blondie's helping him.
    So what did I miss as an answer re who's the diamond thief ?

    I went to the liberty of spoilerizing your post as it includes info from an upcoming episode that this thread should not be discussion out in the open.

    It is a story-arc and this investigation including the blowing up of the DA's car will be included in the upcoming episodes

    Well I didn't say it resolved the issue - Delko did spend the whole episode investigating the missing items (diamond/drugs) from the evidence locker.
