We have DISH and Comcast (Basic cable & Internet Access). A VERY STRANGE thing is happening to the screen on only one of my TV sets. The affected TV is a 15" set in the kitchen. About a month ago we started getting a 4"X8" black box in the middle of the screen whenever NBC's national feed was being broadcast. Local shows (Philadelphia) are fine. The real kicker was tonight we started to have scrolling characters within the black box. The phenomenon happens whether we use a DISH signal or Comcast signal. Other TVs are fine.

The text repeats itself and is:

p 104 9999 2126

Any clue what this is?? Seems something NBC is doing and does not realize it is affecting their signal. To me, it is just irritating!

What are your theories??
