Has anyone switched to this platform from FiOS? Perhaps even recently? I'm looking for comparisons of this platform to the new FiOS VMS service. I guess, if anyone is willing to give me a short summary of what is good and what sucks about this platform, that would be much appreciated. What do you like about X1? What needs improvement?
I'm currently on FiOS in the MD area with a 500 GB DVR with 2 TB external drive connected to it. We have all the premium channels except for EPIX and have been offered a package from Comcast with 2 DVRs and all movie channels except for TMC. We do have mobile devices and have an interest in watching content on the go. I'm concerned about the DVR space and not being able to connect an external drive. 2 500 GB DVRs seems like an ok trade and would be fine, I'm sure, just noting that we would be losing space if we switched. We don't actually watch 2 TB worth of content, but what we like to do is record a variety of things so that when we sit down to watch TV, we have choices for what to watch.
