I've had an X1 for a couple of weeks.
My observations are thus...
* the feature set is not well thought out. It has the feel of two or three conflicting groups slugging it out for features: Engineering, Marketing and Other/customers.
is focused upon BuzzWord Bingo, so being able to say "it does THIS or THAT" is what matters, caveats or dependencies be damned.
quickly comes back with "idiots, if it does THIS the following does or does not happen, if it does THAT none of these things work as advertised."
post in all forums things like the Power and Clock lights which revert to aircraft landing light brightness
whenever they wish, and do not have the ability to Save the settings.
* why can we not have a list of bugs and bug fixes, like every other piece of software we have used? Because of the lack of ownership of the upgrade path. It's a free for all, and it comes off like one. If such a list existed in a single place, I feel sure they would share it. I bet Comcast employees in the field would PAY for such a list to deflect the BS they deal with in the field.
My machine is always ON, and at full brightness each morning. It is set to 1 for each Brightness (clock and green light) and turned off each night. Why is it on? Sounds like what you are seeing, you are not alone.
Unless or until one Comcast group takes charge of a coherent and rational roll out of features, we will continue to see the random, illogical and seemingly arbitrary features be blasted out.
I like the potential, and it mostly works fine, but we all know it could be so, so very much better.
