I have discontinued my starhub cable tv for a long time do I still need to install a POE filter? Thanks
If your coax cable is physically connected to the Starhub network then -> YES!

Remember, the MoCA protocol sends the signal into your whole coax network, which means if you are connected to the main coax cable from Starhub in the riser cabinet, it also sends the signal there (and then may interfere with your neighbours network or with the Starhub network).

Now, if you don't have service over that cable coming from the Starhub network you simply can disconnect the coax cable between your home and the riser cabinet. This usually can be done at the coax splitter but you then should get a termination cap.

Have a read through the discussion here - there's already plenty of good information!

Would MoCA setup work for transmitting Starhub's Fibre IPTV signals across coax?

Starhub is phasing out Coax Cable TV and moving towards Fibre IPTV, that leaves my coax structure redundant and ethernet ports in shortage. Apparently the TV and Internet signals are transmuted from separate ports of the fibre modem, so I was hoping that I can use MoCA to route IPTV signals across existing coax.

Any insights much appreciated!

Its equivalent to laying a LAN cable

In theory, it should be possible as long as IPTV box has a LAN port.
However, as i do not and have not seen any iptv box before, I cant really give a definitive answer.

Bite the bullet and bought 1 set of Actiontec MoCA ECB6200 from Amazon PrimeSG

Setup and tested, max speed only abt 375~420Mbps.

Thought is my home cabling that is causing the issue. Disconnect everything and troubleshoot:

PC => CAT6 ethernet cable => ECB6200 => provided coaxial cable => ECB6200 => CAT6 ethernet cable => laptop (speed obtained is usually 375~420 Mbps)

PC ==> CAT6 ethernet cable ==> ethernet cable joint ==> CAT6 ethernet cable ==> laptop (speed obtained is around 900 Mbps)

PC ==> CAT6 ethernet cable ==> laptop (speed obtained is around 900 Mbps)

I've also tried replacing the "provided coaxial cable" but it doesn't help.

With the above tests conducted, I believed that I have eliminate PC, laptops and ethernet cables as factors that influence the test results. Therefore what is left unchanged are only the ECB6200 units and power adapters.

I've also went into the unit's configuration page as per 1st post (192.168.144.30) and saw that the firmware is quite up-to-date (version 11.1.50.6200.7) therefore I'm really running out of ideas on how to solve this issue besides returning them/RMA-ing.

Anyone has any bright ideas ? OR I super-duper unlucky, just received a lemon set ?

What is the attenuation or signal strength?
What is the frequency set?

RF Channel : 1150
Band : Band D Extended

Are these the info. U are looking for ? If not, please kindly point me to where to get those info., Thanks alot.

Channel and band - ok

There is this graph of connectivity health between the 2 MoCa adapters. Able to screenshot? - can be found at the web utility

If that's' ok, means that either the firmware or lemon set.

Firmware - I have encountered one that doesn't enter bonded speed. What I did was look for another version of firmware, which I couldn't remember where it was but I think it's either SnB forum or Reddit.

There is someone at SNB (https://www.snbforums.com/threads/ac...d-speed.37036/) that is having the same issue and fellow forumers are advising on the iperf parameters.

I've tried those parameters suggested in SNB but seems like I can't run it in UDP mode, nothing happens

May I know what iperf parameters are U using for the test ?

POE

My issue is the reverse.

Mine is jumbo flat with parents staying across corridor. can I connect two flats starhub points using MOCA to give my parents net access to my fibre using moca?

Technically can but not advisable as it also exposes ur data network to ur neighbors unless u r able to separate u n ur parents units’ tv pts network from the rest of the block. The cost of moca is more than cheapest FBB do really no point in doing tat imo. M1 300mbps $30 only... quite affordable..

Just run a ethernet cable along all the way between yours and parents.

This was how my ex colleague (IT staff) did years ago.
