With my Denon I can adjust speaker levels for each input, accessed after hitting "OPTION" on the remote. For the X1 I need to turn the bass down some while turning the surrounds up a bit.

I will try playing with that but I don't think its a speaker level problem, its more the x1 box isn't sending the full surround sound signal to the Denon. I have a separate amp running a 18" sub, on movies from the blue-ray it can really shake the room. When watching tv it's not even working. That's why I am wondering if the rack mount box would work better.

Upstairs its working fine, I can hear sounds coming from left & right speakers (to the point where you look to make sure someone is not coming in the room!) sub effects, etc. I just have ceiling speakers up there. Downstairs is my nice system, Magnepan speakers, Emotiva amp, 18" sub

Worth a shot, if you can find one. It certainly can't work any worse!

a note in my bill this month

Beginning January 17, 2017, KTCA Kids will be added to channel
204 HD. PBS Kids will air 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and
feature children's favorites such as Wild Kratts and Dinosaur Train.

Effective January 1, 2017 Comcast will no longer carry Fox College
Sports Atlantic (ch. 723), Fox College Sports Central (ch. 724) and
Fox College Sports Pacific (ch. 725).

Well with the PBS changes that happened last night Comcast has to change something. 202 (west metro) is normally TPT MN (Minnesota Channel) but now is showing the loop for PBS Kids. That is going to be on 204 when fully launched next month.

Comcast needs to change their decoder (depending on how they are getting it...if its OTA or other ways) because the 2nd channel in the PBS mux switched from TPT MN to TPTKids. They need to change it from the 2nd channel in the RF34 mux to the 2nd channel in the RF23 mux

Same here. For some reason Comcast has still not made channel numbers uniform throughout the Twin Cities.

Yea Comcast has to do something about the channel lineup. Because when it come's to their HD lineup they have the same channel listed twice under different channel number's. It's confusing as hell. I mentioned it a few time's but nothing seem's to be done about it or they simply don't give a crap. They were supposed to be working on including Atmos with the X1 Platform but that now seem's to be on the back burner as well. Now since I went 7.2 I don't even care about that anymore. It's just that alot of promises were being made this past year and now alot of those promises seem to be either forgotton about or put on the back burner. Smh.

I think PBS/TPT also downgraded the OTA signal quality (or magically increased the compression without degrading quality) because the recorded file size of both 2.1 and 2.3 has decreased by around 50% (1 hour used to take around 6GB and now it's a little over 3GB).

Funny how the games show 1080i on my Tivo (yet Comcast downrezes everything else to 720p sans locals)

Also I guess someone doesnt feel like flipping the feed off so last night after the hockey game we had old MSU Maverick footabll games and now is B-Ball games from a couple weeks ago

I'm in the western suburbs, and noticed this weekend that most of the channels have been duplicated in the 1000+ range. Some of the groupings are different too--all the non premium movie channels are together, as are music, kids and news channels. Is Comcast going to this as a uniform channel lineup for all of the Twin Cities? It helps if you have voice remote--might take time to relearn the channels again!

Not just in the Twin Cities, but nationwide:
