Suprisingly, my cable TV goes out as well when the power goes, so it might
just be more than the CMTS that's going out.

It's your neighborhood distribution amp going out, or possibly a smaller amp between the neighborhood amp and your house (...or even one at your house...).

With the Digital Phone and similar rollouts, though, they've gotten better about putting battery backups on at least the neighborhood amps...they realized it was pointless to put batteries in the MTA if they don't put them on the amps..;)
