Severe Pixelation

I've been getting some really severe pixelation on some of my recordings, some lasting for several minutes. How do I start to narrow down if it's is a problem with my premiere, my cable card, and or the signal form my cableco?

Thanks!

I would start by checking the signal strength. Go to "messages & settings", then "account & system information", then "dvr Diagnostics". Signal strength is about half way down the page.

Check this when the picture is normal and when you have the pixelation issue and see if there is a significant difference in the numbers.
