Re: no tv picture
Its possible that you changed the channel or the input line your TV gets the cable signal from. unless you caused more of a problem while trying to fix it, I would suggest you to go through the TV(not cable) channels to see if you can find the one that gives cable picture, or to go through the different input settings(TV/AV on older TV's, and 1, 2, 3 etc on newer ones). one general icon for the later is an arrow going into a circle. I think its the "select" button on your TV remote.

This is a problem with aspect ratio. You need to find the correct combination of settings between your Comcast menu settings and the television menu settings. I personally have Directv, but there should be something of the same effect in the Comcast menus. On the remote control that came with your cable box, press the menu button and navigate to the settings, and from there display or picture. There should be a setting relating to the aspect ratio, and the same applies for the built-in TV menus using your Visio remote. A typical widescreen LCD has a ratio of 16:9 or 16:10. I hope this helps in some way!
I called Comcast about this today and they had me turn off the TV, unplug the DVR, unplug the coaxle cable, wait a second, rescrew in the coaxle cable, replug in the DVR. It worked! The DVR is snappy like it used to be. Such a relief because it was soooo annoying. Good luck.
It's been years but in case any poor future soul comes across this site, this is a solvable problem, if you have an older gray/silver Comcast remote. Plug the white/yellow front cables into your cable box, then the remote can be programmed using the instructions on the Comcast site for Daewoo, after that you hit the tv/cable button and viola, off line in and on to antenna!!
