The "HeartBleed" vulnerability affects primarily Linux-based platforms, and a few BSD-based platforms (Apple computers are BSD, but not an afflicted flavor). As previously mentioned, Windows products are not affected unless running packages like "cygnus," which allows Linux/unix apps to operate on a Windows platform, and then it must also be running specific versions of O...

Aviewer: I'm pretty sure it's not possible ... not between VZN and AT&T. Verizon uses (in their 3G phones) a completely different protocol suite (EVDO and CDMA versus GSM for AT&T and T Mobile). These are usually handled by the embedded MODEM in the hardware, and not something easily switched. There's a better chance with 4G because, aside from the selected bands, they're ...

My guess would be no to each question. The chipset in each network's phone only works for the technology & protocols that network supports. AT&T and Verizon use different protocols (so they have different radio chipsets ... changing means new hardware). I haven't heard of any program to take in other vendor's hardware, especially for an existing account. It could happen, I...

Has the tech actually been out to look? Does transmitting affect any other devices in the house? (like in the analog TV days when 10 and 50 meter transmissions used to kill the TV image ...) More than likely, the drop needs to be replaced with a shielded drop, and the grounding / bonding from the VRAD forward needs to be verified. In nearly every case with RFI into the U-...

While there are several install options that vary, depending on the type of install and the devices, the Ethernet jack on the DVR or Set-top box is not supported as a network access for an additional device (i.e., another PC, Xbox, etc). It can work for low-traffic devices, and is often used successfully, but if there is any trouble with audio, video, or phone (U-verse Vo...

Also ... Some (usually older) TVs do not pass-through or pass-back the audio from any input ... only from the tuner or sound that sources from the TV itself.

The horizontal axis represents the "tone" number, the height of each column indicates how much data is carried, per "tone" A tone is a frequency mini-band that is indepentently modulated as part of a group of "tones." Interference at whatever given frequency within the range used by VDSL / VDSL2 will reduce the data carried for the affected tones," or if strong enough, wi...

IF you wish to use coax from the NID to the RG (called the "home run" by many / most techs), AND you wish to ALSO use coax between the Residential Gateway and the Set-top box (or DVR), then you MUST use a "diplexor" to properly separate the signals. There is only one coax connector on the back of the RG, and it has to handle the Gozinta as well as the Gozoutta signals. It...

Excellent rundown on your fix, thanks! Since the brick appears to have been radiating, you might have been able to use an AM Radio to chase the noise too. I have used devices like the SystemWare Power Line Antenna in conjunction with oscilloscope and / or spectrum analyzers to characterize the electrical noise (knowing what it looks like often helps to figure out what's c...
