Both the local. CBS and ABC HD channels are DOA  typical reference code is when we switch over to them.

Online chat with Cox tech support just reset/reboot the DVR twice with no resolution, despite me requesting 3 resets before I even contacted them.

All other HD channels are rock solid, SD  CBS/ABC work  it who wants SD

    Is the cable box sharing the same coax cable coming from the wall with a splitter?
    If so are you able to bypass the splitter?

    No splitter.  Surely if it was the coax then all channels would have an issue, not just a selective 2, CBS and ABC

    We are having the same problem with CBS.  We are thinking of switching back to Dish.

    Same problem here.  If I were able to total the amount of time we cannot use the tv due to pixelation and sound interruptions, Error codes, Loading please wait messages, etc. and have my bill prorated. I would be spending a quarter of what I pay monthly for this worthless service.  We too have had every cable, splitter, street connection, etc replaced, all boxes replaced, etc.  and the final result is we are not receiving the services for which we pay each and every month.  And Cox seems to have a very laid back approach to it, and doesn’t care about lost business.  Soon we will be cutting the cord and just going entirely app based as a result.  This is ridiculously unacceptable and borders on theft in that we are paying for contracted services that are not being provided.
