OK, here's another one. Up until a few days ago, whenever I finished watching a saved program, a dialog box would pop up saying it looked like I had finished watching and asking whether I'd like to delete the program. Now, that pop-up never appears and I have to go back and find the program in the list in order to delete it. This is much more cumbersome to me than just having to dismiss a dialog box. I'd like that feature back.

Is this some new interface "feature" that has been applied universally? Or is there some way to turn the "delete option after watching" option back on? I've searched through the options menu and couldn't find anything like this. If this is a "feature," it seems to me that usability has taken a backwards step here.

loss of remote control functions due to signal issues

Comcast had a signal issue in my area: the upload speed, which is usually 12 Mbps,dropped to .3 Mbps: to a point it could not get through a speed test. Download speed was still fairly fast

it affected internet and VOIP (modem would keep rebooting) and the remote control functions of the X1: i.e. the X1 would not respond to IR remote codes (I did not try it, but I am sure voice control would also be impacted) even though I still got a good picture and audio)

Comcast has had trucks in the area looking for the source of the issue like a damaged cable. They were able to restore some upload speed, and the X1 began to respond to remote commands again

please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it
HDMI.org:what a mess

I've seen this too and it is annoying. Would love to find a way to fix it. Maybe Comcast will fix it in their next firmware update. Let's hope so and that it's soon.

I had the same issue for a while, but it seemed to correct itself last night. The system again asks if you want to delete the show and if another has been recorded will ask you if you want to watch the next episode.
