Like so many people, many of my channels would display the message "One Moment Please - This channel should be available shortly". The shortly was forever. I reset my cable box and the Comcast sent the signal to reset my box several times, but still did not work.
So, I scheduled for a technician to come out. He appears to have fixed my problem. So I wanted to post this in case others still had this problem.
First, he went outside to my cable box on the house. He replaced the cable divider/splitter with a new one. He put on new connectors on the cable ends. This time though he put the kind you cannot get off. From my research online, they seem to be Gilbert locking terminator (F port locking terminator with resistor 75 ohm - SGLR-01) see this website:
The technician also replaced cut part of the cable oustide where it was bent and looked like it had a kink in it.
He then replaced several but not all of the splitters/dividers inside and put new connector ends on my cables inside as they go to the Cable Boxes and splitters. I keep saying splitters/dividers cause I don't know the proper term for that one input and several output connectors. On it is says, Extreme Broadband Engineering, BDS 120H.
My Internet connection used to drop alot so I think my signal strength seem to increase.
Well after this, I have never seen that "One Moment Please.." message.
If I had to guess, I would say that the fix was the locking 75 ohm resistors. Of course them being locking means that I cannot take them off and add more connections myself. So, I would suggest you find the kind that boost the signal without locking.
I was thinking of getting a CTV Signal booster. But we will see. Hope this helps someone.
