Re: TV screen blackout square on it. I can see cable program show around the sides!

We have had the exact problem ever since they switched to the "Xfinity".  My mother's tv is doing the same thing and she didn't make any changes (already had a dvr).  We thought the problem would go away.  The sound is like a stutter (as the picture and sound catch up), sometimes the tv blacks out and we lose at least one sentence worth of the conversation or we have the little boxes (as you describe as pixelation).  Help!
