So far I have not noted any dropouts with this DCX-3200. 6200ch appears
to be required though, the logs in my previous post show that the
internal channel changer failed to work - unless I missed something in
the config which is required for it to function. The only other thing
I've noticed is that so far the commercial flagger seems to be running,
but then failing to find any commercials. Backend logs show that it
runs, but the number of commercials found is always zero. Anyone know
how to troubleshoot this?
So far Northwestel does not appear to encrypt or disable firewire on any
channel that I have, but I may find exceptions down the road. I have an
HD-PVR coming just in case :).
