Re: Rogers Hitron CODA-4582 Hardware

Hello I just got the new modem 4582 and it keeps losing signal, Ive already replaced it once and did the same today, i was told it could be because i have it plugged into a power bar but it stays powered but my internet disappears.

Don't know if this has been talked about but is there a way to turn the lights off of the CODA-5482 (or at least dim the blue lights that come through the unit)?  Would be nice to keep a darker home darker at night rather than lit up like a Christmas Tree.  

Any help is appreciated.

@bla2342342342 Unfortunately there is no way to turn off/dim the downlink/uplink lights. I defintely agree with you, the lights are really bright and should be dimmed down a bit. @RogersDave can you reach out to Hitron if they could try dimming down those lights,  or if can they try producing a version of the modem that encloses the lights?

Thanks for the quick response. I doubt they could create an enclosed version because it needs the vents to properly passively cool itself. It would be nice, however, if there was a way to dim the lights (and possibly turn them off) much like you can do with a PVR.

@MackyG sign up for the beta firmware, I believe .23 firmware fixed this issue.

Yes, and even with the PVR, the lights are too bright with the deep blue colour.  Completely throws my night vision off when in a dark room, and is in just the right colour and brightness range to interfere with sleep and alpha waves in the brain sleep cycles.

 

It is a bit funny (not) that I don't need a night light to get around my house - the PVR and my modem gives me more light than I need.

 

Yes, it would be nice to have the ability to turn down the brightness.  In particular the modem. It is not like I look at the lights often, accept when I am trouble shooting - I have mine set behind objects (still good air flow) to at least reduce the amont of ambient light in the room, but boy is it ever bright in the corner that the lights face

 

One could always do what we used to do in implementations in sites I used to manage.  Becuase devices had to be secure from wandering hands, the between floor switches with 32 lights blinking, were inside passively ventilated boxes, with a fan.  Not a cheap option.  I wouldn't do it (too costly), but just putting it out there for laughs and giggles.

If only my entertainment centre had a shelf tall enough for the modem, maybe I could do a built-in.  🙂

I might be reconfiguring my home soon enough, anyhow, and putting the 4582 behind said entertainment centre as I also have my UPS behind it.  I know that would help a little with the lights but it would still light up the wall on the other side of my bedroom which could bounce around a bit.  Hopefully a solution can be figured out for the lights.

On a side note, if I were to connect it where my TV and Home Theatre PC are, would the connection go from the wall > PVR > modem?  Or would I want to use a splitter?  Right now, I've got the modem on a different outlet in my den which is soon to become a proper dining room.

Do what i did guys, I put a piece of white Hockey stick tape over the leds. You can still see them and it reduces the night time glare to 0

Wall -> splitter -> PVR/modem.

 

That's a simple setup compared to mine. 🙂

But wouldn't you still have the blue LEDs uplighting through the top?  😕
