Re: (Un)correctable codeword count high
So I contacted Comcast, and the tech called me to let me know my signals looked great, that there was an outage in the neighborhood this AM, and to call him back if there are any more problems. He said he was trying to avoid the Comcast $50 charge for nothing being wrong. I've since called him back and am awaiting a response...
Things worked fine up until this afternoon when the T3s returned, and the internet was disconnected for 10 seconds or so. I saw four T3 errors in the log during a 30 minute period. While this was occuring, I was monitoring the signal levels. I noticed the Upstream signal level was fluctuating on all channels by a range of 20 dBmV. It normally sits at around 44-45dBmV, but I saw it go as high as 53dBmV and one channel dropped to 32 dBmV.
What could cause this fluctuation? A bad amp?
