Re: [Connectivity] I hate cold weather

Umm 0.0dBmV is PERFECT signal so 1.0 is worse than 0.5.

Your SNR is bad yes as you want that higher. So 35 is getting better but no idea why signals would be better but SNR gets worse. Must be some moisture or breakage on the line and the higher input power overpowers the noise caused by the leak?

When we had the cold over the weekend here(CT) my downstream went up to about 7 and upstream went down to about 38. SNR stayed the same(actually was just slightly better).

Right now as we have our brief warm up I have these signals.

Power Level: Signal to Noise Ratio:
Channel 1: -0.6 dBmV 40.5 dB
Channel 2: -0.4 dBmV 40.4 dB
Channel 3: 0.0 dBmV 40.3 dB
Channel 4: -0.4 dBmV 40.3 dB
Channel 5: -0.4 dBmV 40.3 dB
Channel 6: 0.5 dBmV 40.4 dB
Channel 7: -0.9 dBmV 39.9 dB
Channel 8: -0.6 dBmV 39.9 dB

Power Level:
Channel 1: 39.5 dBmV
Channel 2: 41.5 dBmV
Channel 3: 42.0 dBmV
Channel 4: 0.0 dBmV

I wonder if some amp is somewhat weak as it gets cold and keeps trying to push it's gain up, causing the extra noise despite the slightly weaker signal.
