Thanks for the reply, Eric,and thanks for OTing this part.
Can you tell me how the signal is routed in your house? I assumed that
there the service is supplied (from the outside) with one coax that is
connected to a router. From there, the signal goes out to the
different set top boxes via coax - each set top box having it's own IP
I've seen several posts that say fiber is to the node and some that
say fiber is to the curb. I assume that it is really fiber to a node
in the neighborhood and from there copper goes to the home. Can you
confirm or deny this?
