    I broke the end off my cable tuner some time ago since then ive had to have the engineer out to replace my superhub and he 'kindly' modified my cabling.

    Didnt think anything of it till a friend wanted me to update his box and install a new hard drive.

    Anyway I got a splitter and tried to reconnect my hub and his box like i used to (although not sure if the splitter was ok or not). But every time i connected the splitter my hub refused to work and did for a short while after removing it. Despite resetting the router several times each time i tried...

    My concern is virmin have done something to my line/connection... So dont really want to get a new tuner if i wont be able to use it.

    Anyone any suggestions, ive ordered a new splitter and such but though i could at least see if anyone else could shed any light on problem in meantime.

    I've got a H3 in Modem mode, so you may find things are in a different place but..... if you go to the web interface, don't login - down the bottom is a link saying "Check router status" and check your power levels on the "Downstream" and "Upstream" tab.

    On the "Downstream" tab your Power (dBmV) wants to be as close to 0.0 as possible SnR (db) on mine is around 39, upstream Power is 47.

    I'm just wondering if your signal levels are a bit out-of-whack, as I know that if they are too high or even too low (I think once it gets to -4 Downstream you'll start seeing bad dropouts) I believe DVB-C can be notoriously fussy :(

    I know that the splitters have to be "Power pass" splitters so you've done the right thing ordering new splitters, it may be that you've burnt out a diode when your box got busted...

    Downstream - power varies between 2 and 3, snr is around 39
    Upstream power = 44

    without a splitter, should receive my replacement splitter this week so will compare numbers.
