Problem: receivers went off earlier & after I had to turn them back on,
several hours ahead everything says "To Be Announce" I'm so tired of
this happening.

apologize for whatever inconvenience the issue has caused you but I'll
be more than happy to resolve it for you. I hope you haven't waited so
long to be assisted. How are you doing?

Desiree > Thank you for patiently waiting
Desiree > Since 2 receivers are having the same issues, would you like
to go ahead and schedule an appointment for repair?
EDWARD > There was a tech here last week fixing an issue with a modem
that he easily fixed. When the DVR Receiver goes off, the TV plugged
into it goes off too
Desiree > If that is the case, the issue could be the power strip.
EDWARD > I bet, you haven't got an email that techs are working in
outdoor equipment. It's happened before

when the box reset by itself

my pc monitor
EDWARD > The DVR or HD receiver just went off. The electricity DID NOT
go off
Desiree > Alright, what I can do now is to send a refresh hit to your
Cable boxes to make sure that the signal is good. But the issue here is

so wish I could have Dish here but, that is impossible
Desiree > Alright, I understand. Refresh signal sent to your Cable

further assist you.

Comcast Corp. Office in PA

its very difficult to read through the chat transcript.  Can you please post what exactly your problem is?  from what I can gather your cable box is turning itself off?  What box do you have?  make model?
