For nearly a month now I have been having interruptions on my regular television service. Screens pixelating (Garble), dropping to black. On shows recorded on the DVR they pixelate in the same place, if I backup and replay a show segment. On streaming to the computer, this does not happen. X1 tech came out and replaced the X1 box and the coax from the wall to the box. Somewhat better quality picture, but it still pixelated. Called COMCAST tech support, the know nothing script reader told me to change out the HDMI cable. So I did, as suggested, with no change in results. I can't get past the IVR without having the X1 box rebooted, and then the phone tech (script reader) start a "troubleshooting session" that does nothing when he determines that the cable box is fine. I do not want to get into and endless cycle of troubleshooting visits, box replacements with each visit costing me 149 USD for the equipment and visit. WHO CAN I CALL THAT WILL LISTEN TO ME, DO SOMETHING MORE THAN PUSH A 'REFRESH' BUTTON ON THEIR COMPUTER SCREEN, THROW UP THEIR HAND AND TELL ME THAT'S ALL THEY CAN DO?

Starting about 4 weeks ago, I have had regular DNS problems. Everything will be running just hunky dorry, then suddenly, everything stops. I'm running WIN 10 and I get a NO INTERNET Access on the task bar icon. Sometimes this resolves on it's own, sometimes I have to power cycle the router that sits between my workstation and the cable modem. It's not just the one machine. Others in the house will have the same problem at the same time. !-800-COMCAST troubleshooting is no help all they want to do is run a health check, which is going to fail if there is no DNS and then restart the modem. When that doesn't fix it, I'm offered troubleshooting at 49.95 (not going to happen).
