Simple Solution. I have an almost the same TV and if you want it to stay in one format press the FORMAT button on the remote. I am pretty sure it is somewhere on the top right.

I have a comcast for 10 years with a cable modem and tv. The only time I ever had problems and they were major, they needed to run a new line, that's the only thing that stoped the signal from droping.Previous to that, there was an inline amp on the line, and that would have intermittent isues that you describe. Another reason may be the modem, it may be the "old" unit, tell them you need a new modem. They are going to give you a hard time because you aren't using their modem, so every time you call, they are going to ask you to disconnect the router and run through the modem.They can read the modem from their side, and if it is "on", they will stop right there. You are speaking to someone who is out of the country. I made the mistake one day of asking them if there was construction going on in my area, "because they daisy chain" the connection, and if the house next to you has the cable pulled out, it can effect you. The woman told me "she didn't see anything" so I asked her where she was because the homes on both sides werer having work done, She was in India, they outsource to Canada and India so it would be difficult to see if there was construction in Fl.They are only going to react to things that they are authorised to fix. Call them and tell them that your modem goes on and off, forget the router for now, ask for the motorola 8500 series. You may have to ask for a supervisor and don't let them talk you out of it. You also should tell them that your intermittent issue happens wheather the router is on or off, since they don't understand unless they walk you through the basic troubleshooting, which is a waste of time. You are loosing your signal because the modem is droping the connection, you can also look on the Linksys home page, and see if there is a firmware upgrade for your router, but make sure you get the right version number of the bottom.The last thing to check is to see if they have "filters" on your line, they can also cause problems with the modem. If you have a private home or condo, there is a box that stands out someware on the lawn or off to the side. Usually its not locked. Pull off the top and see if you see silver cylindrical looking tubes about 3 inches long inline with your cable line going into the box. If so they may be causing the problem. I had 3 of their trucks on my lawn at one time, and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. ten minutes after they left I had everything running. The problem is subcontractors, are doing the work and you either get a good one or a bad one, you need to keep having them come out until they get it right. So just to go over it again, Modem, Firmware on router, Wiring coming in, Filters on the line. Get to a supervisor right away or you will have to tell the story several times. Also if they do come out, ask him what his meter is telling him your signal strength is. Cable is shared and if others are using their service at high load times, that is another reason that your connection must be perfect, or this is going to be ongoing. good luck

you might have to talk to comcast about that most signals are low for reasons of conservation of bandwidth, they may also be sending 5.1 which tends to be lower volume and adds surround in.
mono is always loud, and that is what you get with 75 ohm coaxial cable (single screw in ).
hope this helps.

I had the same problem. I changed the 4-3 setting on the motorola cable box. Turn off your cable box and press menu. My 4-3 setting was set to auto. If you turn it off, you lose the 4-3 aspect on most channels. I changed mine to 480p and so far it seems to be working. Worth a shot.

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the
Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
