Don't see them on the actual program I'm watching, but they appear when the commercials start. I've tried setting the box to 1080p and 1080i - same mystery.
What the .....??
Is this affecting all commercials or only commercials for local companies and products? If the latter, I suspect the problem is with Comcast's system that injects local commercials into programming in your area. In some areas, many local commercials can still be in SD which might have something to do with this. You might call Comcast and ask about this. For me, since this only affected commercials which I regularly skip, I wouldn't find this an issue to worry about. I am positive there is nothing wrong with either your box or your TV.
