We bypassed all splitters to eliminate any in home issues.
He confirmed there are intermittent signal drops on the freq carrying channel 212. This is causing the drop outs on our cable cards.
Note> STB's are not effected because of their internal amplifiers.
I suggest you call Comcast to complain and tell them you know of other people with the same problem.
Also, dont let them mess with your cable card.
a) Its not the cable card's problem
b) Comcast has a bunch of bad cable cards that don't work at all
It took 2 visits by technicians before they finally brought a card that worked in my Sony XBR1.
PM me if you want to discuss further.
