Re: (Un)correctable codeword count high

Gotcha. Well, I've kept an eye on the count, and normally it doesn't move. However, I just noticed a lag spike while gaming that resolved itself after about 10-20 seconds. The log showed a T3 timeout at this time, and both the correctable and uncorrectable codewords were increasing in realtime. Then another T3 timeout occured, according to the log. After a couple of minutes of this, the "storm" stopped. The correctable and uncorrectable codewords stopped increasing. The increase was about 25% during this period.

So it appears that my unusually high # of errors are occuring in short bursts that are spread out quite a bit apart. The numbers went from a couple hundred (which was received at startup), to over 100,000 correctable and over 1,000,000 uncorrectable overnight last night. It's now 12:30AM EDT here - the problem occured just 10 minutes ago at 12:20AM.

I wonder what it could be?

Is your upstream power level changing at all during this time ?

It's a little lower - 44dBmV. I'm not certain if that's changing at the time of error, or if that's just what it would have been at that time anyway.

I'd call in and ask what your upstream SNR is.
