X1 Box regularly freezing in the evening

I've read dozens of posts about this issue but am not really sure what the solution is.

 

For the past week our X1 box has been freezing every evening- usually multiple times- that all require a reset.  Spoke with technicians who tried to "fix it" remotely.  That didn't work.  A technician was here on Saturday and could find no problems inside. He said he replaced a connector outside.  Not 4 hours after he left the freezing started again.  He had given me his phone number so I texted him and he called me. He said the service call after mine was for the same problem so it could be an "area wide issue."  No reports of that when I check though.  So another technician is schedule to come out late this afternoon.  Any suggestions on what I should look for or have him do?  We do have a 2nd small box in the bedroom.  When the main box freezes, it does too.

Error messages have been RDK-03033, XRE-03059, and XRE-03061.  Mostly its the RDK-03033 message.

Re: X1 Box regularly freezing in the evening

New developments since the 2nd tech arrived and checked things out.  He also could find no issues in the house or even at the box outside.  BUT...while he was here our neighbor called us and asked if we had a tech there because of freezes.  She is having the same problem.  Then she told us her neighbor (we're in a condo community) is also having the same issue.  The tech then said he wondered why he saw other Comcast trucks in the neighborhood.  Long story short is that he feels there is obviously a problem that is affecting the entire complex.  Not sure why if so many people were complaining about the same thing they didn't pick up on that and realize something was going on.  So...we were told to wait and see what they find out.  Still getting the freezes so I hope they figure it out sooner rather than later.
