Mystery drop in downstream power

So I checked my downstream power levels today and found they were close to 0 dBmV when they were close to the upper 10 dBmV which was fine but like this is a big drop so something must of changed some where. I'm guessing this happened at 2:15am as my BQM shows a drop?

Edit: And my upstream power has gone up by 10dBmV too.

Re: Mystery drop in downstream power

I would guess that a technician has put you on a different tap on the street box. 0 is in fact the ideal power level for downstream, what are the upstream ones?

Re: Mystery drop in downstream power

upstream around 47 dBmV was 37.

But could it also be possible that a amp has gone offline?

Re: Mystery drop in downstream power

Upstream 44 to 46 is optimal. If an amp has failed I would expect a more serious problem. I’m the furthest house from the cabinet and at least 3 times a technician has moved me to another tap and severely impacted my service. Every time I see a VM van in the road I check out my connection to make sure it’s still ok.
