the sound and video is delivered normally by the HDMI cable. do you have your audio going to the TV via a digital cable? did you check your AVR if you run the cable box through an AVR?

Thanks for your Reply!! Yes I have HDMI, Don't know what AVR is.. If I use a flashlight you can see the picture.. I am thinking maybe its the TV and not the box..

try a full power unplug from the TV for 3 minutes and plug back in. did it restore the picture? AVR is your receiver (audio) that enables advanced sound decoding.

Sounds like you need a tech visit; call 1800comcast and ask them to check your system.

Which X1 box do you have?
