Re: Fall Sun Outages Pages:  

 

Twice each year, the sun is positioned directly in line with the ground-based satellite dish antennas used to receive CATV programming. This positioning causes programming interruptions as the sun’s energy overpowers the C and Ku band signals transmitted by the satellites.

When the HITS Quantum digital signal is interrupted by the sun’s energy, the DCT set top converter displays “One Moment Please” on the affected channel(s). This condition will be present for several minutes each day during the sun outage period, which lasts for several days. Because HITS receives some of the programming used in the HITS lineup via satellite, some HITS programming services will be lost twice during this period as HITS experiences receive outages. Additionally, the ISO data stream (00B data), which delivers addressable commands to set tops from the billing system, may be affected during the sun outage period. Systems that utilize Motorola’s national addressable control may be unable to send commands to set tops during the sun outage period.

SUN OUTAGES APPROXIMATE DATES:  OCT 4-OCT 12

TECH CableLabs Cooking Up 10 Gbps Symmetrical Broadband – DSL Reports

Fresh on the heels of certifying the first gigabit-capable, DOCSIS 3.1 modems, CableLabs says it’s exploring dramatically boosting cable broadband’s upstream speeds and providing symmetrical connections up to 10 Gbps. While eventually DOCSIS 3.1 devices are expected to support speeds of 10 Gbps downstream and 1 Gbps upstream, the first wave of devices just hitting the market will “only” support 5 Gbps downstream and 1 Gbps upstream.
