Retrieving Data popup message - Why?

Starting yesterday, I am getting a popup on my TV screen every time I start the TV. The message appear in a black box and says "rertieving data." The message disappear after five seconds. There is no error code. I have not change my configuration or service.

 

Anyone know what this is or what it means? Or how to stop it?

Is it a message from your tv not the cable box perhaps?

Re: Retrieving Data popup message - Why?

I don't have a "Smart TV" and this never happened before. Don't think the TV wants data...

 

On startup the TV displays the connection to Comcast; detecting Hdmi signal; Retreiving data.

 

The Retrieving Data message is centered on the screen, the other 2 are on the top and bottom of the screen.
