Re: [Signals] Balancing my own signal

Was that downstream power or upstream receive power? Did you happen to ask what your upstream SNR was as well?

That was downstream power I believe.

Doh! I meant to ask about the uSNR, but got distracted by my kids coming home. I'll call them back to ask in a few. Thanks for the reminder.

They gave you the wrong numbers as they usually do...

What exactly am I asking for when I call to get the right ones? I specifically asked for the numbers at the CMTS.

You are asking for the correct info its just that many if not most of the phone reps do not know what they are looking at.

Upstream SNR is 36.1. I asked if he was sure that was the upstream and then asked for the downstream and that's 35.8 (which jives with my modem's reported DS value).

Many times they quote the stuff polled from the modem, not the CMTS.

To me this is not surprising considering the typical training (or the lack thereof) of some of their employees...
