[Connectivity] Dual 32 MHz vs Single/Dual 96 MHz Tuner?
Is there any difference between modems using either? Is one better? One worse?
Re: [Connectivity] Dual 32 MHz vs single 96 MHz Tuner?
Well, if you're talking Broadcom DOCSIS 3.0 chipsets:
The "first generation" Broadcom BCM3380 chipset used an "Integrated 64-MHz wideband receiver with two independent 32-MHz blocks." (»www.broadcom.com/products/Cable/···/BCM3380
The next, "new and improved" Broadcom BCM3382 chipset used "a second generation integrated wideband tuner, with an extended bandwidth of 96MHz." (»www.broadcom.com/products/Cable/···/BCM3382
So it's better to have a "single 96 MHz tuner" in your modem.
Is the DPC3008 still having issues on the newest build they released? Anyone hear of the problems occurring on a Cisco CMTS?
The Comcast thread seemed to have settled down lately.
Thanks Telco for your responses
. I always like how you leave links to things on your posts and keep things updated.
Well, I ordered the DPC3008 right now. I had the SB6141 ordered but $40 more wasn't worth it to me lol. If it doesn't work right then I guess I can always send it back :P.

I have the DPC3008 and do pretty heavy usage in both directions and I havent had a single issue. I am on the new May 2012 firmware as well. When I bought it, it had the older firmware, but it auto updated itself when I hooked it up.
What are your signals like? Since getting the DPC3008 my power levels went from 1.6-3.3 to 3.2-6.7 dBmV and SNR went from 35-38 to 40
