Tv freezing every day. Random reboots

Multiple times per day the tv box reboots. Then around 8 pm it freezes and gives an error signal stating that the internet is not available. Then we can only turn to a few local channels. Xfinitys resets don’t help. A tech came and told us that the wires had been eaten by squirrels. He gave new ones and left. Welp 8 pm The same night I was back on the phone with xfinity. The rep says “ I don’t want you to have to pay for another tech visit. “ I was like “why should I be charged for a problem the tech didn’t fix and I didn’t do it” xfinity should be taking half off my bill for dealing with this for a while till it got really bad. So another tech is coming tomorrow to try to figure out the problem. I thought that they should have given me a new box. Our internet loses connection intermittently. I need internet at night for my son’s seizure monitor. It loses connection too much. I pay premium prices for top package and shouldn’t be getting subpar service. And they have the nerve to charge us extra for service visits. I’m about ready to spend $10 thousand to chop down trees so we can have direct tv.

If both your internet and cable are affected, a new cable box isn’t going to help you. The tech is going to have to track down why your service is dropping

If your TV has mutliple HDMI ports, try each one.
