My setup is about 10 years old so there are no Hdmi connections. The current boxes are the version that Comcast does not make anymore so when one goes out it has been difficult for the techs to find a replacement box. The boxes I have now have been functioning fine and I was hoping to wait as long as possible before making a lot of tv/receiver/speaker purchases for replacements. I have been paying for the extra sports package which I use mainly during football season. Last night I was going to watch the PAC12 Network and a message came up that I needed to swap devices. I checked a couple of other channels in the package and got the same message. In talking with Comcast they said I needed to swap boxes to get the channels. I am not sure how long this has been the case. Is there anyway to correct without upgrading the boxes? Also, if I get new boxes is there a way to use a RCA to HDMI connection box so I do not have to upgrade my equipment? Is there a recommended box so everything so sound will match video without delays?
adding... all modern TVs have a setting for lipsync in their audio menu and it is done separately for each used HDMI input.
Thx for reply CC. I guess I can use coax out but how does speakers hook up now they go from cable box to receiver and then to TV. I am not sure what SD means? Sorry
In the past when techs came they said the new box would not work so they always tried to find an older box. They have worked fine in the past even for last year watching REDZONE. Something changed within the last several months without any notification from Comcast.
