Cable just randomly shuts off

DOES ANYONE ELSE OR IS IT JUST ME WHERE THE SERVICE JUST RANDOMLY SHUTS OFF.  FOR EXAMPLE, I COULD BE PAUSING A SHOW TO REWIND A BIT- SHOW SHUTS OFF AND SCREEN GOES BLACK.  I COULD BE GOING FROM CABLE TO A SERVICE LIKE NETFLIX OR AMAZON PRIME AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES BLACK OR JUST CUTS BACK TO WHATEVER I WAS WATCHING.  IT SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING MORE AND MORE AND MORE.  WHY?

Re: Cable just randomly shuts off

You're not the only one with this problem.  it happens to me too. Sometimes it just goes black and skips a few seconds of dialogue. Other times it announces that it's experiencing playback difficulties.  sometimes when I FF (at any speed), it just skips or blacks out half the show.

the last 2 posts all describe low signal/high noise levels. check all your connectors and if not fixed, call in for a technician visit.
