      Hi. Just a query. my stats say I get 18201kbps down with 25.5db/5.9db and 1112kbps up with 14.1db/8.7db. Is this still ok? as the target is 7db. will it cause problems. Sorry if the info on this is on another thread but I've had conflicting reports and wanted to ask some people who are clued up on these things. Thank you.

      I believe Sky have amended their target noise margin recently so depending on individual line conditions, it may sync lower - as in your case!

      Thank you. If that's the case do you no if lower the margin the better?

      Will a manual reboot hurt DLM?

      Technically, the lower the noise margin, the higher the sync rate, however historically, the lower the noise margin, the more susceptible the connection is to errors and drop outs. Hence why Sky opted for a safe 7db as their target, they appear to have realised that although some user's lines need 7 to manage stability, other 'cleaner' lines would perform just as well at lower noise margins. The long and short of it is that the new DLM appears to be carrying out more fine tuning on user's lines rather than the 'one size fits all' method!

      The odd reboot - No
      Rebooting several times in the space of an hour - Probably
      Rebooting several times an hour, every hour, all day - most definately!

      I have seen DLM pause for a few days in the past. During this period it has collected useful stats in the background.

      What is interesting is that DLM normally has reset lines between 2-3 am. It can reset a line at anytime between 1 am and 6 am. There are a few members who have commented that their lines have recently been reconfigured and I suspect that it is working considerably harder at the moment.

      You do still have room for improvement, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

      Thanks Scubbie.

      My DLM has normally reset at 05:30 which is why I posted the time as it seemed unusual.

      I'll post any more stats when I get them, hopefully they'll keep the thread highjackers occupied

      Very droll.

      I think you are still on course for 15-16Mb.
