I can read it but the US levels are missing and there's only one US channel locked.... need to see how far over +52 dBmv they are... with -5 ds levels, it looks like too many splitters on street levels like I have here.... Can't go more than a single 2 way splitter because the US gain sucks... only one in 3 street amps has a US(reverse) amp module in it)
here's his levels from a month ago: There is a 3 way splitter but we don't know if it's a 5-5-5 or a 3.5-7-7 one
Thanks for your responses. I copied and pasted and that's what came out. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it any more readable. Will try again when I get home later. I have one splitter. The cable goes from the wall to the splitter, then one cable goes out to the computer and one goes to a TV. The splitter was provided by TWC. There was no outage in my area, but the modem wouldn't connect between 2:15 pm and 8 pm. It came back on at 8 pm and stayed on through today so far. For the 6 hours that the internet was out, my digital cable TV kept going off and coming back on instantly....on a TV that is in another room, not anywhere near the splitter. This has happened several times since July. The inability to connect is always on a weekend and always comes back on by itself Sunday night. Never happened before in 20 years at this address, but has been driving me nuts on random weekends for the last 3 months. I've been told by several techs that everything is connected properly and the signal is excellent.
Ok, in your post a month ago, you said theres 2 tv's and the modem... There has to be a 3 way or 2- 2ways for that to work.
Have you called twc when the cable is out?
No, there's one TV and one computer on the splitter. The other TV is in another room, and every time I lose the internet, the cable on the TV in the other room goes off and on. It is not connected t the splitter. That's why I know it's not a problem with the splitter or the modem. It's a service issue, because it impacts everything, regardless of the room it's in. The cable just comes back quicker. The cable in the other room goes out briefly but comes back on in a second or two. The internet takes hours to come back on. If I'm watching TV in the other room and I haven't noticed any brief blips in my cable tv for a while, I know it's time to check the modem. As long as the tv keeps blipping off and on, I don't even have to check the modem. I know it won't be connected. But 7 or 8 pm rolls around, and everything is back to normal. It's really kind of comical at this point.
No, I don't have an outage. Just brief interruptions in my cable TV. The cable in another room comes back on, but the modem can't reconnect for hours. They won't send a tech to my house when it's happening. The techs tell me there's no outage in my area, but I have no internet for 6+ hours on random Sunday afternoons. And then I can pretty much count on the modem reconnecting around 7 or 8 pm on a Sunday night and restoring my service as if nothing happened. And it won't happen again for another 2-3 weeks, but always on a weekend. This has never, ever happened outside of a Friday night thru Sunday night,
And during these regular outages, you check all your cables and your box outside and call TWC?
Considering the shenanigans on another thread, I'm wondering if someone is getting free cable on the weekends off your tap....
Call THAT in, I bet you get a truck roll...
