Got to confess girly I have never come across a channel requiring a symbol rate with a decimal in it, perhaps someone else has. What channel are you trying to view??

Try leaving the DP out altogether. It depends on what units the rate is expected in.

Yeah the 6.666 will be in Millions of Symbols per Second(Msps) your receiver is obviously asking in Thousands of Symbols per second(ksps). Hence why you are putting the value in a factor of a thousand bigger.
