TRUE TV Channels 43 and 1351 in Fort Wayne market not working on my TV's

I get TRUE TV reception on my Comcast Internet account at my house. But, though the logos and info show, I am not getting a signal for TRUE TV. YES, I am supposed to. YES, I have HD tv's. Any idea? Any one else out there have/had the same issue?

It's possible for the signal for a channel to be too weak or have too much noise, or for the cable box to lose authorization for the channel. This might be because of a bad box or a problem at Comcast (check https://customer.xfinity.com/, 1-800-Comcast voice response, or the "My Account" app), or a poor connection between the box and Comcast's network.

Troubleshoot by checking all connectors and looking for damaged coax cable. Running the cable through a surge protector, a defective splitter, or too many splitters can cause signal problems as well. If there is an amplifier in the line make sure it's getting power. You might also try unplugging the cable box/DVR/digital adapter power cord for a minute or so.

If you can't find the problem, call them at the phone number on your bill or 1-800-Comcast, or chat with them using one of the "Trouble" options at https://www.comcastsupport.com/chatentry/. Ask them to check the account setup and send a refresh signal to the box. If they can't fix the problem remotely, insist they send a tech out to identify the cause and correct it.

If the tech finds bad coax, splitters, amplifiers, or connections in your home (even if Comcast originally supplied them) you'll probably have to pay for the visit unless you have their Service Protection Plan (https://www.xfinity.com/support/account/service-protection-plan/, about $6/mo). If the trouble is due to a faulty Comcast cable box/DVR/digital adapter or anything outside your home, you shouldn't be charged.
