I would suspect the setup of the Comcast STB. I assume it's Motorola. You need to set the output format for HD to 1080i and the 4:3 override to 480i. See:

There is a user convergence that you can do - instructions in the operating manual typically right after the section on Magic Focus, or you can do a DCAM convergence:

If you have Direct TV HD the best way is to use a HDMI to DVI cable. If you only have the component (red/green/blue)connectors on the Direct TV Box that would be the best way. You will not have audio using the DVI cable, so you will have to run Red/White cable to the Audio Input.

If you can move the TV to a known good working cable feed and connect it there. if the picture looks normal then most likely you have a bad splitter, a bad fitting or even a bad cable box on that TV.
