    What signal level input and output in field to receive proper RF signal level and MER/BER

  15. Gibbs says:

    Dear Ujjwal Swami,

    Can i use from 106 to 298 MHz instead from 306 to 490 Mhz for our digital transmission of Headend for Arris D5. So that lost of db in coaxial be minimize ( Higher the frequency , db loss increase ) . Will be there any issue, Pliz help me up.

    1. Ujjwal Swami says:

      Yes you can use. Do not suddenly shift all frequencies, do shift some frequencies and check the field status.

  16. Vinay says:

    Hi sir, Raghava from karnataka. can you explain front end and back end flow chart of STB.

  17. adil says:

    dear Sir, in an IPTV system each headend has several DVB-S2 gateways. how many TV channels does a DVB-S2 gateway decode . does it differ from vendor to vendor such as TELEVES / TRIAX/ BLANKOM , how can we determine the no of channels for the DVB-S2. for example one vendor has DVB gate way with 4xDVB-S2 providing 48 FTA channels and another model having 16xDVB-S2 providing 512 FTA channels . your website is very informative thank you

    Sir, what is role of M-CMTS ARRIS D5 QAM , HOW IT WORKS, ITS FUNCTION, DETAIL configuration , CAN THIS D5 QAM use to delivered BROADBAND TO customer by same cable system ….

  19. Gibbs says:

    Dear Ujjwal Swami,

    How to add another 48 port data/ video switch as my 24 port is full.
    Can EHD 24 encoder change to SPTS& how to add in Arris d5, not working

    1. Ujjwal Swami says:

      There are two ways to connect 2nd Data switch,
      (1) Connect a loop between Data switch 1 and Data switch 2. configure the switch’s port for passing PSI SI data only , into the data switch 2. Now connect your new irds and encoders to the data switch 2 and connect a cable from data switch 2 to QAM’s input port GB port 2.

      (2) In the 2nd data switch connect your new irds and new encoders and connect your PSI Si data from PSI SI server. Now a output from this 2nd Data switch will go into the QAM as GB port 2 input. Where GB port 1 input is reserved for Data switch 1. In this cas you need to split psi si data for Data 1 switch and Data switch 2.

      For the SPTS and MPTS you need to check in the settings of the encoder weather it support SPTS or not. Gospell encoders supports both SPTS and MPTS.

    SIR PL


  22. Arvind says:

    Hii..sir i want to know how do we define service ids.and what should be take maximum or minimum digit.
    can i take any digit…

  23. Arvind says:

    Plz may i know about my previous issue..i.e service ids

    1. Ujjwal Swami says:

      in digital video broadcasting every service can be identified by three values,
      Network id
      Transport stream id
      service id

      network id is unique for every network and transport stream id is different for each stream likewise service id is unique for each service.
      subscriber understand each service by EPG number or LCN number while server identify each service by its service id. it is numeric value customized by headend engineer.
      every transport stream contain only one SDT (Service Description Table) . Service id or SID comes under SDT.
