************FALSE WRONG ANSWER; RED CARD************ HOW AM I 10000000% POSITIVE????? WRONG???? I am currently the proud possession of not one not twibut three Comcast hunk of the garbage god only knows Comcast changes their model number in all the time, however what was called a 3400 DCX work fairly well and told the flat panel because the 3400 can't handle the sound signal. You wanna know how I am 1000 percent positive. Because the LG tech came out he said luck here's the diagnostic screen this 100 percent bypasses the box it is 100 percent in 5 to TV listen its beautiful something incorrect I said yes sir absolutely he says therefore with surpreme confidence you can tell Comcast their box is busted K so you guys send me what everybody drools over the RNG 200N....box number one we have no registration aunt can't take a signal guess what I even use the brand new fancy dancy tables it came with so what does that mean it was screwed and tighter than tighter can be..RNG 200N #1..and yes I'm technology savvy enough to go into the heading menu enough Breaking box was not sending out signals it wasn't talking to the head end clearly you must be a Comcast employees so I put hope to god you understand head and. throw the fancy dancy RNG and the trash hook back up the 3400 turn the volume the 45 but I still got picture and sound barely sound but I got sound. so what does that tell you genius there's not coax l problems as I sit here RNG number 2.....I get the error code as part of this thread. oh and just so you can't say I didn't try hard enough I even took the cables from the 3400 box put them on the new box twisted them tighter than pipe can beI sit here looking at a not authorize screen for a channel I watch daily, and when I try to go to on demand CL-0x000f. *************AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD********** anyone that instructs you cue track every connection inside your house is an absolute 100 percent mouth breathing sub-100 IQ moron. the only reason necessary to do that would indicate that the system would be a closed loop the fifth the loop were broken it needed re- inserted coaxial cable inside the home does not depend upon an endless loop around the house dear God for the love of God who was giving out that kind of information
