Re: [Cable] MoCA bridge causes poor cable signals periodically

Click for full size
The MOCA transmitters might be overdriving the receivers in the modems.

Also, iF additional attenuation in the coax network made the MOCA transmitters output more to over come it or made the modem downstream lower into the modem, the difference between the 2 signals may have grown and is causing more issues.

You may want to try putting MOCA filters on the input of the modem. Newer DOCSIS 3 modems (like the Motorola 6121) have this built in, older ones (like the Motorola 6120) don't.

If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.

I'll point out it's not just killing the modems, but my cable boxes (Tivos) as well, so it's dumping noise out over the coax.

It doesn't do this all that often though. I've only seen it every 28 days so far.
