Cox Phoenix updated my Cisco Tuning Adapters this morning from using Legacy OOB mode to the newer DSG (DOCSIS Set-top Gateway) mode. Old Firmware was FLASH: STA1.0.0_1520_LR_F.2001 New Firmware is FLASH: STA1.0.0_1520_BDSG.LR_F.1601 It looks like it's one step forward, OOB to DSG, but 2 Firmware revisions backwards. Moving from F.2001 to F.1601F.1601 had a tuning request failure issue that was resolved in F.1901forums.cox.com/.../request-for-new-cisco-sdv-tuning-adapter-firmwarewww.dslreports.com/.../r28882767-CATV-Request-for-New-Cisco-SDV-Tuning-Adapter-Firmware The Diagnostic Signal Levels for OOB (FDC & RDC) are now gone, so it looks like it will be harder to do diagnostics. There is a new Page in the TA Diagnostics Menu: "DOCSIS Information" which has the Upstream and Downstream levels.
Thanks for the update!
Would you look into why Cox chose to use an old Firmware Image F.1601 that is known by Cox, Cisco and TiVo to have a bug where tuning request failures are common and increase exponentially over a short period of time until the Tuning Adapter is rebooted.Cox needs to update the DSG Firmware Image to at least F.1901The bug was fixed by Cisco in F.1901 and the most recently deployed OOB Firmware Image was F.2001
I have to disagree with your response, image .1601 did have a known bug and Atlanta Cox engineers and Cisco were aware of the issues. DAVIC or DOCSIS are both "2-way" just a different communication protocol.
