Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

This PDF contains the most frequency asked questions in regards to the VIAVI ONX-620 and ONX-630 HFC testers which are also shown below.

VIAVI ONX-620 WiFI Screenshot
  1. Your password may have changed since the last time you set up your Wi-Fi connection. "Forget" the connection and reset it again.
  2. On Apple devices you must put a password. Long and complicated passwords are unnecessary and easy to mess up during the set-up process. Choose an easy and short password. On Android, you can leave the network open and connect.
  3. If you cannot see your device, the area might be too congested with Wi-Fi hot-spots or the application is being used by another program. Reboot your unit.
VIAVI ONX-620 Ethernet Screenshot
  1. Go to: System -> Network -> Ethernet
  2. Insert the ethernet cable from your modem/router directly on port 1 or port 2 on the side of the device.

The modem/router will automatically assign an IP address to the machine provided DHCP is enabled.

A green message will say "Link Up" on the port that is connected to the internet.

You can use your built-in web browser to ensure you have internet connectivity.

While doing OneCheck, the draining rate is approximately 13-15% per hour.

The battery should drain gradually, and you should not be seeing drastic fluctuations.

If you are seeing your battery jumps from 100% to 70% then back to 90%, or the such, please update the software.

If issues persist, contact TMG Support for assistance.

VIAVI ONX-620 Digital Measurement Settings Screenshot

By default, NBN has Digital Measurement Settings enabled to allow OneCheck to collect more data to be sent to the servers.

OneCheck should normally take between 3 to 5 minutes.

If it is taking a lot longer than this, then please contact TMG Customer Service for support.

You can empty the memory by going to: CATV -> CATV Settings -> Automatic File Purge -> Manual File Purge -> OK

To check you have plenty of memory left, you can check this by checking in the File Browser located with the System menu

You can back up data on a USB stick. However, you will need to submit reports manually as these will not be able to be sent via StrataSync.

Reports saved on USB are saved on a ZIP file which contains HTML version of the report.

An NBN Limit Plan is a template that NBN has created that stipulates the thresholds of the readings for the OneCheck, Ingress Scan Test and DOCSIS check.  Essentially these are PASS/FAIL parameters.

The NBN Limit Plan can only be deployed via NBN StrataSync account: 42641443.
Only NBN can deploy the template.  Please liaise with your supervisor about installing this template on your test meter.

How does this work?

When the technician synchronises the meter to NBN account for the first time, the asset is placed into a "holding bin".

PC Screenshot: VIAVI StrataSync Portal

The StrataSync administrator will manually need to cross reference the serial number and approve the meter if applicable…

Once the asset is part of the StrataSync account, NBN can deploy the template onto that unit

The technician will then need to sync again to the NBN account to download that file which the unit automatically installs on the next job, which is why is important the technician creates a new work order to make it work.

PC Screenshot: VIAVI StrataSync Portal - Deploy
VIAVI ONX-620 StrataSync Configuration Screenshot

In order to ensure the NBN Limit Plan Template is correctly installed, you need to go to:
CATV -> OneCheck -> View StrataSync Configuration

First step is to ensure you are connected to the internet. You can do this by following the usual procedure, then opening your built-in web browser.

Second step is to make sure you’re sending that data to NBN, go to System -> StrataSync and make sure the StrataSync Account ID is 42641443.

VIAVI ONX-620 Hardware Options Screenshot

NBN may sometimes block testers from sending data to NBN due to a range of reasons. When this happens, you will see a warning "server unreachable"

Most commonly because the unit has been reported stolen or because the hardware/software being used is not approved by NBN.

Go to System Settings -> Hardware Options.  Ensure that the Low/High Diplexers values are the same as the image shown on your unit.

VIAVI ONX-620 Broadcom Error Screenshot

If the meter is showing this error, the issue could be caused by software or hardware failure.

Try performing a software update using the "cold boot" method.

If the issue is hardware related, you will see the following screen during the upgrade ->

If you see this, please contact TMG support.

VIAVI ONX-620 Software Update Failure Screenshot

If you are looking to purchase second-hand equipment, we recommend you check it was purchased from TMG originally.

If you get the serial number, we can cross reference against our system to see whether this unit has been reported lost or stolen.

Furthermore, equipment purchased overseas might not have the correct configuration, software or hardware rendering it unusable on NBN's HFC Network.

TMG is not obligated to provide support to units that have not been purchased directly from us.

Important Technical Tip

Technical Tip

To avoid damaging the ports on your ONX-620 or ONX-630 and ensure a tight (leak proof) connection, always use the approved  Ripley Torque wrench when connecting cables to the ONX.

If a Torque wrench is NOT used, the over-tightening of cables connected to the port can permanently damage the ONX port which leads to incorrect results and significant down time for your instrument

If your ports are damaged, TMG can replace the ports for you with a super fast turn around.
