X1 STB playback issues

Sorry if this is the wrong place but I could not find a thread for HDTV-cable.

I just got my Comcast X1 box Tuesday and in general it's OK with one exception. All the recording when played back have many (10 -20 per. hour sometimes more) dropouts (pic. freezes and or pixelates). I have discovered that when I download the recording to my tablet it plays just fine with very few to no dropouts.

I have tried just about every cable (cable in to the house) combination I can think of and ran the cable direct to the box, no help.

Normally I run the HDMI to my Sony projector via my Onkyo receiver and have no issues. I also have a HTPC recording from the same cable signal source and have no issues
with the play back from the HTPC. I ran a HDMI cable directly from the X1 to the projector and got the same dropouts. I do not over pay for my HDMI cables and some may blame my Monoprice
HDMI cables but they have never been an issue before with any of my TV's and my HTPC.

Are there any known issues with the signal strength out of the X!?

Anybody else experienced this or have any ideas?
