Is this a trick question or are you asking for help?

To be picky:

1) Your one upstream channel exceeds the preferable 49 dBmV

2) Your Uncorrectable Codewords are greater than the Correctable Codewords

Yes something is wrong...

You have WAY to many tabs opened lol...

Only thing that could be better is US power level. Under 50 is ideal and one is under and one is above.

I doubt it would have any connection issues though as even if the high one dropped the other would maintain.

Maybe instead of being coy, it might be simpler for us slower folk if you just directly ask the question.

You need to educate yourself on signal levels. O does not mean not present.

All zero is generally fine, I would imagine if you stare at it often enough it will drift slightly depending on the temperature / amount of sun hitting the PED. FWIW, my SB6120 has read pretty much all zero (4) since dropping the CATV connections.

My old SB6120 used to mostly read around 0 on the downstream channels. My current SB6121 is usually about 4 dBmV higher. I'm guessing it has a more sensitive tuner than the old one, or the old one was getting worn out or something.

Upstream is marginal and will cause problems if it goes up any.

I almost always see all 0 dBmv values for the DS power levels in my SB6121. That is in fact the optimum level. Perhaps if you had actually asked a question instead of trying to be a cute little troll, you might have received an education sooner.

For reference: For 2-channel bonding, the limit is 54dB. For 3-channel, it's 51dB.

Please accept my apology. I thought you were trolling; now I see that perhaps you really didn't know that a 0 dVmv DS power level is the optimum value instead of a problem. I hope that you now do understand that. OTOH, you really should have just asked that as a help question, and not try to be "cute" with a mystery "guess what my question is" post.
