I posted way too soon! I decided to get out of bed after sending previous post from my cell phone, and when I walked to the living room I noticed that the DVR was showing the correct time. Strange, I thought so I turned it on and it showed channel 2! I quickly turned on the TV and sure enough we had TV back but only basic cable channels. Knowing that it may be a provisioning problem at the head-end, I rebooted the DVR and couple of minutes later all the channels were back! Same with the cable modem after a reboot!
Thank the maker! I can't imagine going through the weekend without any internet connection.
Now I am stuck in a phone queue with Comcast…
