Personally I would not get to involved in those mega graphs that you see in DSLstats these day I just click on Telnet Data on DSLstats and read the  Previous 1 day time = 24 hours 0 sec for example
Previous 1 day time = 24 hours 0 sec

FEC:            6938867         28
CRC:            6               10
ES:             5               10
SES:            0               0
UAS:            0               0
LOS:            0               0
LOF:            0               0
LOM:            0               0


I look at CRC's and then ES then SES and look at the DSL uptime to make sure there were no disconnects during those 24 hours and that's it. Only when you start to get random resyncs then would keep a close eye on SNRM for a few weeks to see if this is an inside or outside issue.

BT have also now been awarded Lot 1 of the Scotland R100 programme.

https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2019/11/bt-scoop-lot-1-of-scotlands-r100-superfast-broadband-rollout.html

This is the one that would apply to Weaver's part of the world.

  I know how you feel. You should see my TV aerial distribution system I  have here.....
    The reason I asked for the test was I was wondering if the feed was odd for any odd reason. I dont know what the circuity of the distribution you are using is like. I am wondering if the device's ability to pass power an magic eye is due to a passive lowpass/DC filter which could cause all the magic eyes, and power unit  to be shunted across the coax feed? If this were the case even the power unit could present a low impedance to the magic eye signals?
   As for the reason for the one magic eye outlet giving problems, I am not sure, but something about is odd, hence the point about by-passing everything to see if the thing then works?

Can I just ask you experienced peeps if bridgetap/Star wiring always has some kind of bad effect on a VDSL connection?

Yes. It has a bad effect on any xDSL service. (Where xDSL is any one of ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+ and VDSL2.) It would be more noticeable on a VDSL2 service than, say, on an ADSL2 service.

Getting back on topic of Apple TV+, I continue to be reasonably impressed by quality of shows, some at least.

But, and this has happened a few times, I just got a whack on the wrist from my watch to tell me thereís a new episode of For All Mankind.  Really, who at Apple could have imagined I wanted my evening to be interrupted that way?   >:(

And seconds later, another whack, thereís a new Morning Show, too.   :'(

Sure, Iíll be able to delve into some obscure settings and turn off these notifications.   But itís irritating that I need to do so.

I wonder also if head parking was your issue, there is a tool where you can disable it or at least adjust it so its less aggressive on WD drives.

Sorry Chrysalis, I missed that point.   Iíve heard rumours of head parking issues but it doesnít fit the symptoms.

Just reading the disk, or just writing it, all was well.   But with a mixture of reading and writing, the errors started.   I even managed to reproduce it a couple of times by just repeatedly copying a big 10GB file to another file on same partition, within a Ďwhileí loop.

Main thing is, I seem to have got the system working properly again.   A model of perfection for a day and a half now. It had also been raising lots of errors during my overnight cron job, silent last night.

Attributing the fault to the disk itself seemed like a long shot, but thatís what the evidence suggested. And splashing out on yet another new drive, maybe against the odds, might easily have proven to be  good money after bad.  Thankfully though looks like the right decision, regardless of where I go from here.

Just so annoying, the sequence of events.  MythTV dies, then new HDD all good, then MythTV fixed, then new HDD not good after all.    As said, sometimes life just conspires against us. :D

Hey guys,

I still need to get in the junction box for pictures.

Can I just ask you experienced peeps if bridgetap/Star wiring always has some kind of bad effect on a VDSL connection? Is it just a no no? I have had this extra live cable since I have lived in the house without any noticable problem
 However could it be a case that it had always the potential to just turn and cause issues. Also would it always have held my max attainable speeds back. So even when I was getting 75mb/19mb this would have always been eating something away and at some point was going to cause issues. (Not saying this is the issue) but perhaps another issue.

Thanks guys

WD seem be very good at RMA's.

I had a drive out of warranty, not only did they say no problem, but I got a brand new drive back, when many companies try to give you used stuff.

I wonder also if head parking was your issue, there is a tool where you can disable it or at least adjust it so its less aggressive on WD drives.

Bear in mind tho my drive failed the quick test in the official WD diag tool.  If your drive passes that test, then you may have a hard time.
