EDIT: New more important issue has developed.

As title says, something in the DMP Pro is breaking the Dish Network MoCA system, Dish won't acknowledge it.

Came across this post on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/dishnetwork/comments/qv2bgn/_/hkxdwur
Yeah, check to see if you have the endpoint scanning enabled. I understand that you had the issue before hand, but I know 100% this setting causes issues. (when I say that I'm sure its a dish issue, not Ubiquiti) I'm using the UDM Pro with 3 APs, 24 port switch, 8 Port POE switch,a few Flex switches, 16 Unifi Protect cameras and lost of other stuff. Let me know if this helps. Not sure what logs I can get from the Joey or Hopper, but there is an issue and I'd love to figure it out.

Yes, I'm a geek and actually enjoy this stuff :D
This post is a month old, so. Only thing I have that says Network Scanning has the Honeypot under it, turned off it's not that.

Did not have this issue with EdgerouterX. Still have DPI on, IDP on but set to notify not block. Originally had Threat Management set to Balanced, it is now custom since I have been turning stuff off to try and isolate, but my Mother and Father in law are not going to be that patient, since it requires a reboot of the Hopper to get the Joeys back to showing a tv picture.

Symptom is changing channel causes a Black Screen with guide.

Port 9 is 1g wan port 1, port 10 is an SPF wan port. Data sheet shows 1/10G SPF wan port, but my modem only has a 2.5g rj45 wan port. I cannot get internet connectivity off that SPF port.

My service level is 1G internet and modem is provisioned for 1.2G so I was hoping I could pull a tad more than a regular 1G port.

Any ideas?

A short 10g dac cable might be cheaper?
I made a massive mistake, when I ordered a verizon MiFi drinking, thinking I could use it as failover at the time, only to find out the next day it only has USB-C connection for charging.
But my wife could use it at work, ala running a security camera is the idea. So I've been over ruled returning it.

Depending on your Unifi Dream Machine Pro board revision, the system is capable of 2.5Gbps on the SFP+ port, even if the data sheet does not reflect it. None of the Early Adopter versions support it if that's what you have. Otherwise, try getting something like the Wiitek 10GBase-T transceiver and see if with a Cat 6 or Cat 6a cable the devices will negotiate a 2.5Gbps link on the SFP+ port. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07P39G4XJ

Thank you for the link, will look into it.

As for now, I managed to get 2 G4 cameras (pro I think) so am going to need a PoE Switch and a storage solution.

EDIT: G4 Bullet cams, the pros are 400+ each.

UDM Pro has 3.5 or 2.5 drive capability, since it would mostly be for camera storage, any hard drive recommendations? Larger capacity mechanical or lower capacity SSD?

There’s an article with some limitations that can help guide the decision: https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037340954-UniFi-Hard-drive-compatibility-and-management

The main takeaways is that you need drives that aren’t too big for the trays, and that are CMR (SMR drives should not be used in a recording drive). Both WD Purple and Seagate Skyhawk drives have extra firmware features that tune them for life as a concurrent recording disk for up to 64 camera feeds.

Honestly, for the price, Unifi’s own disk drives are not a bad option to get guaranteed compatibility and support. They are likely white-labeled Skyhawks or Purples, with some custom firmware. https://store.ui.com/collections/unifi-accessories/products/hdd-8tb-standalone

I do *not* recommend SSDs for this use case. Surveillance systems are still an area where cheap and deep HDDs are a great use case for this. Yes they’re mechanical and will eventually wear out, but they are rated for about the same workload as your standard consumer workload SSD, and will cost far less to replace a 8TB HDD than even a 4TB QLC SSD.

Larger capacity mechanical
Mechanical by far... and no seagate.
I really do not mind refurbished HGST Helium Drives.

That is a steal for its price with 5 yr warranty.
And a surveillance drive isn't something that is data crtical.
When it dies, you know it dies, and chances are you already got what you needed it off it unless you like to achieve your footages.
