Back in late March 2019 when I looked at my SNR and Power levels my SNR ranged from 39.7 to 40.9 dB.
Today they range from 37.4 to 38.8 dB.
Power levels were 9.1 dBmv to 12.9 dBmv.
Today they are 8.0 to 10.6 dBmv.
Between the NID and the Router coax cable connection is a splitter that is being used as a barrel connector basically.
IT's a 1 to 2 splitter. Should I consider putting a terminator cap on that port 2 of the splitter?
Is that even possible?
My main question though has to do with snr and power levels and the effect of temperature. Lately for the past several weeks around here it's been 90+ . The before readings were taken when the temps were at least 20 degrees cooler.
What is your experience ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
So basically I should get a 3 ft length of coax attach it the open port and then terminate the 3 ft length of coax? Just wanting to be sure I am interpreting what you said is correct.
At some point in the future, I'm going to pay Spectrum to run a single line from the NID to the Router junction.
I have no idea why they didn't do that in the first place.
would this suffice:
So you think a terminated splitter would be better than this:
when the Spectrum tech came out back in March 2019 he put new compressions fittings at the nid to the splitter in and splitter out .
