This screen summarizes the overall status of the set-top. Most of the fields can be found on the other screens where more detail is given.
•Status indicates the overall boot progress status. This will say "Initializing" if the boot process is incomplete, "B'cast only" if the box has booted but only in one-way mode (has not received an individual UN-Config) or "Ready" if the box has booted two-way. This indicator will only progress forward in the previously mentioned initialization states and is not indicating the current state of the set-top. •CPU/Bus is the CPU and Bus speeds of the Explorer. •Memory -
•Ev Pool is the number of PowerTV "events" available in the operating system's event pool. •For each of the two main memory heaps, system and video, this table shows the total amount of memory installed, the amount of memory that is free (not in use) and the size of the largest contiguous free block. For the system heap only, the number of in-use and free "chunks" of memory are also displayed. •RF Parameters -
•Tuner shows the frequency of the in-band tuner. If it is tuned to an analog channel, it will indicate as such. If it is tuned to a QAM channel, it will have the current approximate signal level and the average errors per second since the QAM channel has been locked in. •FDC shows the frequency that the Forward Data Channel (out-of-band) receiver is currently tuned to, it's current approximate signal level, and the average errors per second since the FDC receiver has been locked in. •RDC shows the frequency that the Reverse Data Channel transmitter is currently set to and it's output level. •Delay indicates the round-trip delay between the set-top and the QPSK modem at the headend or hub. •Clocks - These show the time that the set-top was booted and the current time. It should be noted that the boot time is calculated based upon how long the set-top has been booted subtracted from the current time, so if the current time gets adjusted, that change is also reflected in the boot time.

- On the Cox 8000HD with the new Passport IMG hold the center (select) button and exit button simultaneously. The diag menus are different but easy to navigate.
- QAM -15 to + 15 dBmv range, -8 to +8, required SN > 30dB for 256 > 25dB for 128...
- Team what would cause a stb to reboot on iits own besided the normal commands sent from the DNCS? How can the data on key pages support what kind of reboot the box went through? e mail me at email@example.com
- Hi! My suggestion to make a not for RF parameters:what a range of dbmV is good,and wich one not good.Thank's Zeev.My E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org
