It may be due to signal leakage in the actual cable. If so, your neighbors should see the same thing at the same time you do. Ask them. Either way, Cox needs to test the coax from your set top box all the way to the optical node. Have someone come out with a strength meter. It may be a noisy tap, and they won't find that testing from the headend. The fact you can't tape it, though, is interesting and suggests that the signal isn't coming through the cable. Perhaps someone within wireless range is doing something that they ought to be doing better, and your tuner is picking it up. That would be an FCC problem. HTH, Stheg PS.
