I had a HIC installed yesterday. It's installed on a Hopper RG6 drop off of a duo node with a tap. I noticed this morning that the Hopper fed from the tap has -15 dbm rx power and that the HIC reads -32dbm. The TX/RX rate of the Hopper is 293+Mbps and the HIC is down to about 253Mbps.

Everything works OK but it looks like there's a really significant power loss on the HIC side of the tap. Any ideas or is this normal?
