I don't use Comcast cable for anything but Myth Busters and Sci-Fi
Fridays. It turns out that the cable line from the house to the pole is
rather fragile. It can nearly fail with no out signs of damage. In
particular, the exterior sheathing can stretch much more than the
interior signal carrying wire. So when a wind storm bounced a limb
across my wire followed by several very warm days, the line drooped
enough that the center feed was no longer actually inserted into its
receiver. Most channels were unaffected but several looked like crap
(comedy central, PBS).
