Re: Are correctables a problem?

I agree with with the above replies Codeword errors are either correctable or uncorrectable bytes that assist with error correction in RF transmissions. FEC (Forward Error Correction) works well with short pulses and noises that are normally picked up in coax transmissions since traffic is normally fragmented and send it bursts. Longer interruptions however are much more difficult to fight against and are normally the causes for data loss and connectivity issues. As everyone has said before, the correctable are ok but the volume in which they are incrementing and the combination of the high RX levels could indicate an underlying issues that hasn't fully reared its head yet. Good luck
