here is a picture, look at the power level, it is marginal. how can this be brought up to an acceptable range?

A low downstream power level can be caused by several factors, including minor attenuation in the frequency range where the power level is computed. By itself, that reading is not necessarily indicative of a problem.

If you're not experiencing any service problems, this reading is probably not a cause for concern.

dude those stats are so awesome it's not funny. you are in the small percentile with such good stats. Consider yourself lucky and everything is perfect.

 

How does it look when there is heavy rain?

No, I have over 10,000 RG's stats in my line database, and over 90% of those customers have good/acceptable stats with no major line problems.  About 10% of those are provisioned on an incorrect profile, but that is a provisioning problem, not a line problem.

Traditionally, banshees wail or scream.  They do not rain.  I believe that was a malaprop or mixed metaphor (or both)?

way too funny guys....ok i could say its raining cats and dogs, but if you go outside you might step in a poodle....

or i could say its pouring buckets ,,,, the list could go on and on and on, but i think you got the point...it was raining really really hard, and it was lightning, and the numbers stayed the same as expected! the only thing i have issues with right now is that about 7pm every night, the service will reset all by itself, not a problem for me but the family was watching a movie and it reset during the movie and it came on and said that the program is not available at this time, they tried for 30 minutes to get it to come back on but no nothing nada zilch.although regular programming was available.;.but 24 hours later no problem watched the movie fine....

 

what is causing the sporadic/timely /intermittent reset?

If it's at 7PM every night, there could be a street light outside that is causing interference, or something inside your home that is coming on at that time.

 

When you see that message about the program not being available, were you able to watch other channels?

 

Try unplugging your box at the back, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in.
