FWIW, this looks exactly the same as my DCT-6200 that is now
experiencing the same problems.  I guess I'll be brave enough to attempt
to call Comcast tomorrow and see if I can get anywhere!  I normally only 
use the box for HD recordings which is one reason why it took me so long 
to recognize the problem, but mine used to work fine with SD analog 
channels.  I've tried changing the output mode on the front but it 
doesn't seem to do anything.  The analog svideo output suffers from the 
same problem as the firewire output does too I've noticed.
