Solved! Go to Solution.
ok...quick question....my multi room dvr shows 21db on oob and all other boxes are 20db...are these specs in range?...everything else says successful except remote dvr which says "not applicable"
also my multi room dvr box the qip 6416 which is a replacement from my first box which was defective, will not FF somemtimes at all...i have to unplug and plug back in to be able to FF again...is this a known issue?...its getting a little ridiculous as i have had to call them everyday since my install with a new problem...now yesterday my internet was practically down the whole day seems from searching a main backbone around NYC went down
as long as those numbers are above 19 they should be good, you may want to reset your router and then unplug and replug all of the boxes one by one, once all of the boxes have the guide check the oob ratio and make sure it is above 19. If the dvr keeps having issues try another remote first, and if you have the same problem there call into tech support, you may need a new box if that keeps happening.
all boxes show 21db...im still having some trouble with the 6416 multi room though...it is noticably slower than the qip 7100 hd boxes...is this normal for it to be a little slower than those boxes? like when scrolling channels all 7100 boxes can go really fast then when i stop they stop...on the 6416 after i stop it keeps going for a while and just more little things like that
found this out recently the 7xxx series have twice the memory so the guide and a few things work faster on them. the 6416 is a little slower but should not be big enough of an issue though. If you keep having issues with the fast forward though that may be something to call in about.
well im going to have to get a third box now...it keeps freezing on me like the last one...now when this one freezes all the lights on the box go out...and if it does work and turn on half the time theres no sound...this is getting ridiculous...when i call for a new box will they send me a 7216 if i ask for it seeing how ive had no luck with the 6xxxx...im also going to try and get the dvr for 6months free or sumthing cuz this is riduculous
it is luck of the draw... you will get what is in stock from the warehouse that day.... no way to specify
k tech support ran me thu bunch of diagnostics...they said the oob was right on fringe of being to low hovering between 20.7 and 21.3 and in-band SNR at 37ish was almost too high but still in spec...multi room is working fine again hopefully it stays that way so they dont have to send a tech out
thx for quick replies guys...web dvr just started working again too:)
