Thanks for getting back. I did check those items to no avail. This 
was a very stable system that just started failing so it was weird. 
My clue was that one day late last week, Comcast's DTAs needed to be 
power cycled for no apparent reason. I had a hunch that it was to 
load a new frequency table and late last night effectively did the 
same with scte65scan. Success.
