    A DR symbol is displayed on the front panel, and the D9858 web GUI displays a D/R in progress status. During a disaster, the receiver will attempt to tune to a different backup transport, based on the search path configured.

  • Page 30

    Chapter 1 Introduction For example, the disaster recovery is configured as follows: Program Origin Transport Backup 1 Backup 2 Backup 3 Entry Channel Number Transport Transport Transport Channel Channel Channel Number Number Number – 1005 When disaster occurs, the transcoder will tune to channel 11, as defined on the Backup 1 transport.

  • Page 31: Uplink P Rofile Settings

    Disaster Recovery Uplink Profile Settings Once the transcoder detects a failure after the configured signal loss timeout (defined by the uplink), it will initiate a disaster recovery using the PNC uplink Disaster Recovery Profile settings. If the PNC uplink is set to allow local disaster recovery, the disaster recovery profile setting on the unit determines the disaster recovery setting to use (local or uplink).

  • Page 32: Nit Retu Ne Recovery

    Chapter 1 Introduction NIT Retune Recovery The Network Information Table (NIT) retune recovery occurs when the tuning parameters on the uplink do not result in a successful tuning lock (for example, modulator settings or transponder signal strength). The receiver will try to tune to the new signal (NIT), and if it does not lock to the new signal during an initial engagement delay of five minutes, it will revert back to the original signal.

  • Page 42: Power Connection

    AC power, see Appendix B - Technical Specifications (on page 331). As Cisco units are designed for continuous operation, some products do not have a power switch. In this case, the main cord and/or DC power supply cable serve(s) as the main disconnect device.

  • Page 43: Installing The D9858 Transcoder

    Cooling The D9858 transcoder is cooled by the use of internal fans. The air intake is from the front and the air outlet is on the rear. Note: Adequate cooling must be provided equaling 107 W (maximum) at 25°C per unit to avoid overheating.

  • Page 44: Connecting T He Ac Power To The D9858 Transcoder

    Make sure that the power cable is connected to protective ground. See Grounding (on page 21) for more information. The D9858 transcoder is equipped with one power supply located in the rear of the chassis. Note the location of the power supply in the event of alarms/warnings resulting in replacement of a power supply.
