I called Comcast they said I could buy a box from ebay and it would be no problem. When I got it had no pic or sound, I called and they said if it was unplugged for 2 months or more it wouldn't have proper upgrades and is junk and said not to buy from ebay. Then why did they tell me I could on the first phone call? Thanks Comcast.....

By Law they (Cable Company) have to give you service if you buy a box I bought one from the internet and I called Comcast. At first they wanted to give me a problem but when I explained my rights and the law of having the option to buy your own box I got it hooked up and after 2 hours the box worked perfectly. So yes they can turn on a box it's just that they (Cable Company) doesn't want to take the time.

There is also a cable card installed in the back of the box. You need this cable card for your box. Make them rent you one for $2/mo.

The cable "box" has to first be in the cable company's inventory, then "burned" with the appropriate channel lineup for that area. It has to be in their billing system which communicates with another system called the DAC.

Unless the box is in their system, it will not have audio or video.

If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.

I have the same set, same problem with one of my MOTOROLA boxes, but not with another. I have a SONY TV that works fine with this new MOTO box, but the new VIZIO does not. The audio is coming through the HDMI cable just fine, and the fact that it works when you cycle power on your TV means it's the SYNC between the TV and the BOX. I have the identical problem and am taking back the MOTO box for another one. I spoke to VIZIO for about 45 minutes trying different things. They think it's the MOTOROLA box, COX (my cable company) thinks it's this particular box, who knows.

this is most liekly an issue with your cable box, try a dvd player, or another source and the issue probably isn't there right?
Repalce teh cable box and your problem is most likley going to go away. TV issues regarding picture and sound are more black and white, it either works or doesn't.

Viera TH-46PZ85U. gray box where picture should be


If it was a setting on the television, then the cable info would also be affected. Try a reset on your cable box, as the cable info is generated within the box from the data stream, whereas the picture is streamed from the provider.

If the reset doesn't work, it's time to call the cable company - it's not a fault with your telly.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.
