[TWC] Downstream Bonded Channels error?

The following is shown on my modem configuration and it doesn't seem quite right. Is there a problem with this setup (specifically channel 2) or is this normal?

It could be ingress from FM radio stations due to cable damage or loose connectors causing problems with that one channel.

is this something an onsite technician would work on, replace the modem, or something at twc hq.

You'd at least need a tech visit to make sure it's not your wiring, but it can be something leading up to your location that a tech at your house can't fix.

Previously with my old modem i couldnt go to time Warner secure sites such as the billing and payment site without rebooting modem. now that seems to work but that channel seems screwy. i didnt pay that close attention on the last modem to see if channel 2 was screwy also.

i am going to tighten everything up again and possibly see if the tech can replace the modem and see what happens.

You have a local FM radio station in between 104.5 through 105.5?

The 33dB SNR is fine, but usually signals a issue. Checking fittings are tight, dielectric is flush and no cheap splitters.
