Test patterns on Comcast cable?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any way to see test patterns such as pluge patterns or color bars on Comcast cable? I couldn't find anything in the forums, and the kid I spoke with at Comcast was clueless? Thanks. Jack

I don't know why they would broadcast those. And if they did, they would be compressed as hell.

Since there is a lot of repetitive data in a test pattern I should think they would compress and restore fairly well. Consider color bars for example. The entire pattern is comprised of around a dozen pieces. Why not compress it?
