cable box issues

For the past week the two cable boxes for my TV's were not working properly.  When the tv's were on the Data light  {yellow light] was not on and the information bar only said To Be Announced. I reset the cable box's one each day and the Router twice, nothing changed Saturday night one cable box when turned on said that a it needed a cable card to correct problem. ??  I reset cable box and everything corrected itself. I had set a appointment to have it looked at because I could not correct problem.

It's strange how every thing corrected itself late Saturday night.  This problem raises it's ugly head at least one per month in one form or another, Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to correct this??

Everytime I ask someone to come out the problem disappears.

Re: cable box issues

Have you checked all your cable connections between tv and cable-box? Any cable working loose from it's connector on each end?

Also check the connector coming into the home, or any connections at splitters.

Re: cable box issues

Hi Jerry46, it sounds like your cable boxes may need to be replaced. I show that you have another cable box on the account, do you have issues with that equipment? Also can you please send me a private message with your serial numbers to the two boxes that are experiencing the problem? You can send a private message by clicking on my name (ComcastAmir) and with your serial numbers can you please provide your street address and the full name on the account?
