So I seemed to have found a way to improve the macro-blocking and stuttering on playback via MOCA. I noticed that all of the splitters installed in my house are rated up to 1000 mhz. I downloaded the PACE DC900X installation manual and it clearly states that macro-blocking will occur if coax splitters are not rated up to 1.5 GHz.
I ran to Radio Shack and picked up some satellite tv splitters that are rated just over 2 GHz and installed those in my house to replace all of the old splitters. the diagnostics screen still read "fair" for my MOCA network, but after several days of uses during playback, I would say that I received signal loss and macro-blocking about 1-2% of the time and it would last for a second or less. Going even further into the diagnostics, my transmit and receive rates were all in the "green" and ranged from 230,000,000 to 255,000,000. Basically, my playback experience was VASTLY improved to where the programs were very watchable.
I called Insight to complain and they are supposed to send out a technician today to look at my MOCA network. I am definitely going to demand that they install higher rated splitters so that I can return my $50 worth of product to Radio Shack. I shouldn't have to spend $25 on an install fee and then more money out of my pocket just to make this thing work. Can anyone else comment on what splitters Insight has installed at their homes?
Here is the only link that I could find for the DC900X installation guide. http://mediacomcable.com/pdf/Pace%20...User_Guide.pdf
