Re: [Connectivity] Motorola 5100 vs. 5120

said by rseiler:

Could you expound on that? Noise from what? Is there something I should be keeping it away from? And what's a "modulated plant"?
Noise as in low SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio). It just isn't as good at handling excessive noise (below 33dB) when the downstream channel is using 256QAM for modulation as the SB5100's broadcom chipset is.

Plant is just a term for cable system.
