The guys in this ng (myself included) are going to need a lot more
detail to pin point the cause of this behavior
But w/o the info, IMO this is a problem of inadequate floor system
It is different than the squeaky floor problem.
I'd guess that the floor joints run parallel to the wall that the china
cabinet is up against. I'll bet that the TV cabinet is arranged
What size are the floor joists? what is their spacing? how long is the
span (unsupporte length)?
Without knowing all the details, these ideas are just guesses.
If the hypothesis is correct, the solution is to stiffen the floor
The exact method of stiffening would be dictated by the details of the
as built condition.
The fact that the floor is over a basement will make fixing the problem
