Your dvr is out of spec, the upstream SNR is too low (probably a plant issue) and your upstream signal levels are too high (either a drop or in-house issue), you should get a tech out to verify everything.

 

Non X1 related, your modem is also out of spec

Andrew can you explain this in a little detail? What do you mean that the SNR is probably a plant issue? How is that corrected?
