unconfuse me re cable box

re info about Jan roll out cable boxes----are these to replace the boxes we had installed last go around or additional boxes for second televisions (that we had expected last jan) ---thank you


  1. Hi Mag,

    These are the long promised DTA boxes. They are for a second and third TV.

    They do not replace your Set Top Converter on your primary TV.

  2. Dave,
    I am a snowbird. Is it true that you will need to have the new cable box reactivated if it goes unused for over 3 months?

    Sometimes, because of power outages, a box may lose synchronization with the Comcast network.

    The first step to try is to unplug the box and count to 20 and plug it back in.

    Give the box a few minutes to reboot, if it fails, then call
    Comcast for a special signal to be sent to resync. the box.

    They may ask for the numbers on the back of the box, so write these down just in case.
