really? I've read the exact opposite on these forums in the past, that CDV doesn't take away from HSI bandwidth
My experience is that it does. I had garbled phone calls whenever I was downloading large files and Comcast could not solve the problem so they installed a second modem!
Then you have an eMTA problem, as a second modem would do nothing in terms of expanding bandwidth. Not questioning your experience with it, just the conclusion.
I have never had any problem with multiple devices running, video streaming, interfering with phone calls.
I too however installed a second modem...but for a different reason. That way when I'm rebooting the modem and such, I'm not knocking my wife off the phone...good for domestic tranquility! --
