DW7000 speeds have stayed consistent

First check your cros pol  - It SHOULD NEVER FAIL - if it is then that is your speed problem. It should be up in th mid 60's to 70's at least - My signal strength is never above 60 and I run pretty good all the time. HOWEVER , I know this sounds crazy but it is true, Direcway seems to throttle down certain sats at certain times of the year.  Anyway check that cros pol that is usually the flux speed problem.  And  did you have a 6000 before the 7000? And if so where your speeds better then or is the 7000 your first modem.   

The last time I did an auto cros pol test, I got a 61. I've heard that if you don't pass, then you have to call Dway and tell them to push you through. I'm worried that I won't pass, so I'm not going to take the test again.

My cros-pol is always 80-89.....still having problems. Usual signal is 79-81 Did not have this problem with the 6000 every evening only with the upload speed.

IF you cant pass cros-pol your dish needs adjusted.

I've been told that even if I get a 61 cros pol, I still need to repoint.

Almost a year ago when mine was first installed thats what happened the installer called to force it through.  A few weeks later found the coax was junk and run too far. I fixed that mess myself. Cross- pol will change throughout the year as well as with the weather it seems. On a clear day at your home, and NOC with no approaching storms I would not settle with a 61 cross-pol. Early morning testing results in less Que times.

Its still is not going to fix the speed problem that we are dealing with. Somebody recently posted a 99 cros-pol with speed issues.

99 cross-pol is indicative of a error.  There are a lot of people getting cross-pol's that high right now, and their uploads are suffering from it.  The same thing happend a while back, and it seems to be happening again.  I'm getting a cross-pol of 69, and my speeeds are great, for now.  I had a slow down 2 nights ago (AMC9) similar to what everyone else is experiencing, except my uploads were bad too.  Hasn't happend again....

The low down on the call tonight...

Some straight answers for once maybe...

Admits there is an issue with the system maxing out, especially on SatMex 5. Engineers are working on it.

Checked some things on the advanced page. Says the rate code should be up to 3/4 or 4/5 at times.

Very pleasant support call for once. Very apologetic, but could not give a definitive timeline. He said "I think you'll see improvement soon, but for an exact date or time, I cannot say.

Encouraged me to continue running speed tests on MyDirecway so they are logged and to continue to document the slow times with calls or e-mails to reinforce the problem and ensure it gets addressed.

Hard to be rude to the guy when he is that nice!

I have run it 8 or 9 times on the 7000. Always 99. Probably wrong. Does read 99 in the advanced page too.

My 6000 had a XPOL of low 90's all the time. Signal strength of 91 too. I tweaked the hell out of my dish after the idiot installer left. I tune the dish up if the values drop. Laptop out on the roof!

I wonder what will happen with that value when they get things straightened out.
