Low Network Transfers, ROV unusable

Awesome to hear!

Normally we use the blue/white pair for the ROV comms, but it should be fine as long as you’ve got the same pair connected on both ends :slight_smile:
Is it possible you had different ends connected before? Homeplug (what the fathom-Xs use) is funky AC, so you can sometimes get intermittent signal working across pairs just by cross-talk from within the tether.

Wonderful, keen to see how it goes :smiley:

You were right. I don’t know why I was so sure that the brown pair was the main pair. I did a successful dive with only the brown pair plugged into the FXTI and the blue pair plugged into the ROV. :man_shrugging: Then I read your reply and realized my mistake. Now I have both the blue and brown pairs plugged in the FXTI because I obviously need all of the network reliability that I can get.

I have 7 videos to share tomorrow after work from my 3 days of ROV adventuring. I’m waiting for them to get uploaded and processed in the maximum quality before I make a Dive Log post.
