Thanks. I remember now reading that when I was doing my research. Quick update. Today I had a successful install. Had to work and go to the Dr. so haven't had much time to play. Everything seems to be working. No resolution switching problems, yet. No freeze ups, audio level is fine, actually a tad LOUDER than my old Moca box. I have my old equipment AND they have been removed from my account so don't have to pay. I can still watch my recordings on my Moca box until I unplug it or the power goes out and the UPS runs down otherwise it will go into DVR disabled status. Got the Harmony working, but need to add in all my funky buttons etc.

Not having both 30 sec. AND 5 min. skip is going to be an issue for me. I'm going to play with it at 30 sec. since that and 15 back is what I use the most, but I often use 5<> quite a bit with OnDemand. An actual commercial skip function like the sat. companies have would be a great addition. I think that 5> then a few replay presses might work well for commercials. I won't have any recordings to watch until tomorrow on the new box need to get caught up on the old one, but I am going to watch 2 shows from last night OnDemand to make sure there are no issues.

I am also getting use to the new guide and I'm already not a fan of how you set recordings. The record button does nothing. Figured out how to start a recording on the remote and pause semi-live TV but the boss is never going to put up with that.

The tech. (an actual Comcast employee as I got special clearance through some connections I have) told me the only issue he has had is that twice now his box has put up a message about DVR service being busted and in 30-45 min. it comes back. I told him if that happened even once that the X1 is going back. He also has had issues since there is no day up/down function in the guide so if you like to set recordings in the future with the guide it sucks. I don't use that much and normally set up most of my recordings online.

Also I was told when I set the new appointment that there is an Android app. But I guess there is not. I don't use my phone to control it so that is no big deal for me. I will just use my laptop and if I have it tied up I can just use one of my many IOS devices.

Ok now to go play. I will report back later when I come up for air.

BTW - the PQ on the hub to my Sammy DLP is excellent and much better than the Moca box. However set at 1080p/60 on the great room TV (it's a 720P Panny plasma) it looks like crap, but at 720P it looks ok but no where as crisp as with the Pace box it replaced. It could be the TV, but there is some issue there.

So my STB record light is stuck on even-though no recordings are in progress? Earlier I thought that nothing was being recorded when I hit the record button. Came home to a bunch of short recordings of the same movie all at the same time. Very odd. Gonna have to play with this sucker. It's already more annoying than any other Comcast DVR box I have ever had, but strangely it's kinda fun and addicting. I'm right now watching the series ender of Burn Notice as a on demand test while I reprogram my Harmony. Lots of work to do there.

I like being able to control the box and menu while watching OnDemand. BN is playing in 1080p/60 and is actually in 5.1 DD. PQ i great and no slowmo artifacts like with most of the boxes. I'm having a hard time telling a DVR recording from OnDemand and I like being able to 30 and 15 skip on OnDemand. Now to see if I can watch The Bridge and skip <> that was locked out on my old box last night but 5min<> was working.
post #513 of 1425
Can someone direct me to the post to set the 30/15 sec skip please?

Ok so I was fast forwarding through my first movie recording and the box locked up. After a while it rebooted. Now I get a blank screen and when I hit the Xfinity/Menu button it says "sorry we are unable to access your TV service at this time...." I pushed the power button and instead of powering off it has now rebooted again. It's rebooted again now and I got a different error message with a different code and now it's back to the original error. I'm sad to say that tomorrow instead of taking my old equipment back, I will be taking the X1 stuff back if I can't quickly call and get this resolved. I have recordings that are supposed to start in not too long.
post #517 of 1425
X1 is still buggy. It's much better than when I got mine in May. But I've been saying we are beta testers, and don't get the X1 if you're not prepared for some speed bumps.
I guess it bears repeating.

X1 for early adopters and the brave only! wink.gif

Yup I should have gone with my best instincts and waited but I wanted to see if it would work before the fall season starts up. My hub is now dead after less than a day of use. Watched 2 OnDemand shows and recorded a movie and froze in the middle and never came back up. Call to support on hold for 30-45 min. then another long time on the phone with the tech. They were not able to add my old box back on the account since they did not remove my X1 equipment from the account (in my area the billing and activation system will not allow X1 and non-X1 equipment on the same account). I was able to plug my Moca box back into the cable and it restored back up with everything except for OnDemand despite it being deactivated on the account. This is probably because I unhooked it before the tech disabled it. My guess is that if I power cycle it I'm going to loose everything, but it might be ok. I might just try it for s*its and giggles. It is recording the season opener of Haven and I am watching it. Didn't have dd5.1 and lip sync was off because while I was using the x1 it was getting various remote codes and it got into the setup a few times. It was set to a large lip delay and LPCM. I have an appointment tomorrow in the afternoon for a tech. to come out and make X1 work again. The STB is still functioning. I'm thinking that I will have the tech just restore me back to the old stuff and wait for a year or two until this thing will function correctly.

Once Haven is over I am going to swap the cable again and see if it will come back up after sitting for a while. The tech warned me that there can be times this happens and it takes 30-45 min. to come back.

The good news is that I had none of the issues I was worried about and I was also able to write a sequence for a 3min skip on the Harmony while set in 30sec mode. The plan is to have one button do a 3min and another to do 1min. Those combined with the 30 sec will give me very good control of X1 and also the old box if I keep it. The commercial breaks in one of the programs I was watching and recording this evening as a test had exactly 4min.commercials breaks so one press of the 3min. sequence then two jabs at the skip forward was working. I think it was a repeat of H50 that I was playing with.

So either i got a bad box or they did not come out and fix my signal level at the pedestal like they were supposed to today, or they did and the signals are off. The tech. did not certify my installation since my downstream is hot and the upstream is a tad low. He said the plant techs were going to adjust the incoming signal to make things within tolerance based on all the tests he performed. It could be that the X1 system here is all messed up here also since when I called in I was informed by two different messages that there was an on demand issue in my area. That could also be why OD is not working on the old box. I need to check the STB to see if it can do OD now, but it was able to earlier when this all started.

I forgot to mention that I was tempting fate having X1 installed on Friday the 13th in the year 13 ;-)

That sounds like bologna to me and the contractor passing the buck on checking signal levels properly and remedying if necessary. Remember they are not techs...

How many STB's do you have?

Did they install a drop amp (no/zero loss) ?

Can you go into the diagnostic screens and post some screen shots of your levels on all boxes?
Hold Exit 10 sec, page down, #2.

System, DOCSIS, page 5 on DVR.

How many average uncorrectable errors do you have across your tuners? (The count resets after every restart of the STB)

You cannot trust levels on first summary screen. FYI...

It was an actual Comcast tech that came out and he knew what he was doing. Since I am in a new house with new wiring and a new plant outside he wanted to get things they way they should be. I can't get into the diags on the hub since it is toast. Though earlier when it was giving the error and no video in the Man Cave the STB could see and play recordings that are on it. It's either a provisioning or other issue or just a bad box. It froze up and I can hear new clicking noises from the HD so it might have had a failure? Or getting stuck in the bot sequence. The nature of the error message leads me to believe that it's an upstream server error of some kind. Phone tech. had mr power cycle which I had already done a couple times before calling and then they hit it with a code that turned it off and made it reboot and I had to push the button to get it to come on, which is what they expected. So it is kinda working but won't boot fully for some stupid reason.

I only have 2 boxes a X1 DVR and a X1 STB.

Later after I get up I might take some snapshots but I have a service appointment in the afternoon. If they can't fix and explain the problem quickly I'm going to just go back to my perfectly functioning legacy equipment. I'm under contract until next May, other wise I would just take back all my TV equipment, cancel service and hook up to OTA and use Aereo for broadcast DVR functions and just stream and torrent everything else. I can't dump Internet for a year after than since I have Home also and Comcast Internet is required for that service.
post #522 of 1425
If you hear clicking, that's a bad sign for any device with a hard disk. It should be silent minus a little fan noise maybe (mine is completely silent - below what my ears can register anyway!)...
post #523 of 1425
No joy on exit5-10sec then pgdn. Does nothing on either box. Have to wait for Comcrap/Comcraptistic to come fix the fetching thing.

You verified that the X1 will output both HDMI and component simultaneously. I am interested if the remote units have that feature in addition to the main DVR unit. Can you confirm this works on remote units? I ask because in my setup I would use a remote unit to display two TVs in my basement at once. Thanks

I had X1 installed about 1 week ago. The installer did not install a zero loss amp, but he did test the line and said it was good. Could someone look at my diag screen and confirm the levels look right?

I have the original slingbox and x1 has to be on 1080i in order for video to work with component connection. I would like to use 1080p on my tv but from what I've read there should be no real improvement with 1080p (65" plasma).

In my opinion the resolution set to 1080i, unless you have to, is detrimental.

So here is my reasoning:

You're watching sports, ABC, Fox, etc that's broadcast in 720P.
Your X1 is set to output in 1080i.
So the X1 interlaces the 720P content. Upscales it to 1080, then your TV has to convert it into progressive scan. It may have to down scale the picture again if your set's native resolution is 720.

So, 720P - 1080i - 1080P or (720P).

That's a lot of extra processing which can degrade picture quality.

Another wasted weekend with Comcast. Back on my old legacy equipment but not for our Pace box. When the tech plugged it back in it would not power on. We tried two power brick and I verified both the AC and DC voltage. So I guess after being plugged in for a year in our 78-80 degree house in the summer it decided to join it's friends in basic HD cable box heaven. It was carted away by the tech and all he had was a dirt old DCT3416 DVR which is nice since it is a DVR, but old, big, ugly, clunky and very slow. They did some tap work on my pedestal either Friday or Saturday like thy said they would (I suspect this was when I started having issues with the new X1 boxes). This made the levels worse. There is/was a line and level problem in my area which a couple hours after the tech left I got a call that had been corrected. I am now waiting for my contacts at Comcast to reschedule a tech again to come out, test, verify and certify the levels and attempt X1 for the third time. Hopefully the old adage "Third time is the charm" will play out here. I still have both the X1 boxes and they have been deactivated on my account so I don't have to pay for them and everything has been coded as "free" so far. I still have one lingering issue and that is when I use any Internet device the DVR manger still shows my X1 boxes and not the Moca. I spent an hour with them on the phone last evening and they could not fix it. Told me it would take a couple days. However every other time I have added or deleted DVRs they show up on my online account and the DVR manager almost immediately. I told them I would just call back in a day or two when it never resolves itself. I need that ability so I can keep track of my 70+ series recordings and my to be watched items that I either need to source on demand, rerecord, stream or source BDs of.

More to come.

Had the X1 installed a few days ago to replace my HD DVR. On Demand has not worked for me. I got an error message #22. Now all On Demand offerings (free ones) are listed as 'coming soon'.

I'm calling Comcast now to ask they waive the installation fee for the X1 due to this issue.

I'm an Android user (for now). I can record using the Xfinity app however their is a dedicated X1 remote on iOS and nothing of the sort, for now, in the Play Store.

X1 is loud. Almost reminds me of my old PS2 while using it. Old HD DVR was dead silent. This is annoying and a step backwards for new tech. Does this bother anybody else?

The look of the X1 menus are obviously a huge leap forward. Navigation is a mixed bag. Not fluid. Not obvious. I can deal with it, but leaves something to be desired.

Remote is a mistake. Biggest issue is that I can't hold down the volume button to go up/down. I need to keep pressing it over and over again. WTF?

Button placement on the remote is just not good. I'm constantly looking down at the remote. I don't feel I'll ever get used to the placement. I wish these damn things would light up in the dark.
post #532 of 1425
Sorry you're having problems. FWIW, I've never had any issues with On Demand, noise, or navigation in the system. Not sure what your problem with the volume remote is, either. Maybe a low/dead battery or a bad remote? Mine works just fine. Agreed that a backlit remote would be nice, but your brain will learn the placement of the buttons eventually. smile.gif The remote definitely works better with the X1 itself if you put into RF mode following the instructions on the back of the remote (but that won't help the issue you're having with your AV receiver).

Regarding the noise, did you stack something on top of the unit? Since it had grated holes for cooling, I assumed they didn't want anything blocking the top of the unit, so I put the X1 on the top of the stack with nothing blocking the ventilation. I've never heard any fan noise or any other noise from the X1.

Yes the lack of an Android app sucks. I was assured before my first install that there was an app. should have checked, but I only have a phone right now that is functional with Google. I have a rooted Nook Color that I need to update one of these days.

Yes it is really loud coupled with the fact that it is on 24/7. Some Comcast folks have said that they want everyone to go X1 since they are more eco friendly. What? This is probably the biggest thing that will keep me off the platform. I am hoping that if and when I ever get it to go that it won't make more noise when in my HT cabinet.

Yes, navigation kina sucks until you get used to it. I'm back on a Moto DCX-3510-M and it is very responsive and I can get to stuff much faster. Too bad I can't have both X1 and legacy at the same time in my area. Would be fun to see the evolution or demise of X1 as it transpires.

For your remote issues I highly suggest you get a Harmony remote. Even-though you can't do RF with it the IR on the Harmony's is quite superior to any other remote I have used. I had no issues controlling the X1 with it and that was one of my concerns. I did find myself using the XR2 at times. I like the feel and size of the remote but the lack of a light or glow in the dark is an issue. I did not notice the volume control (or lack thereof) as I always use the AVR and the Harmony for control of it. I really liked the RF control so I did not have to point the remote at all.

As far as I could tell the older dark grey Comcast remotes with the red ok button (not the newer silver ones) seemed to control the X1 just fine. I didn't have it hooked up long enough to check out all functions. I read somewhere that exit may not work? I get really confused with all the Comcast remotes. I have a really old silver smaller one I keep around since it is highly hackable/programable/customizable and have used it to learn codes to the newer ones and in turn learn those codes to the Harmony. I also have two of the older dark grey ones and now three of the newer lighter silver with red button. I also have various results with different comcast boxes and the various remotes. I never know what remotes will control what boxes. My 3510 is currently programed as a DCX-3400 since that is what I had in the old house. I did a ton of customization and did not want to do it again and all functions work great. The only weird thing I have had is that I messed with various skip sequences with the X1 and noticed that when they go out quick like that it causes several 5 min. skips with the "advance" function so last night I added the profile for the 3510-m to my activity and used the skip ahead function from it in a sequence and I can now get anywhere from 1-2.5 min of skip for commercials. Sequences to the X1 while being specified as an X1 on the Harmony also worked. It was only when I sent "advance" for a DCX-3400 to the 3510 in a row what the oddness started. If I just press the button I have programed for "advance" it only skips 30 sec. I remember someone else recently writing about this. All care now is that I now have a couple different skips I can use to get through commercial breaks. 5 min. is usually way too much and I have found that the majority of breaks are 3-4 min. long but often at the beginning of a show they are way short and longer as it goes on. I think they are mixing things up to thwart us commercial skippers.

That's a lot of extra processing which can degrade picture quality.

Thanks for the response! That definitely makes sense to me. Maybe I'll switch to using s-video output from x1 to slingbox so I can go back to 1080p on the x1. I just hope s-video doesn't degrade my slingbox picture too much. I was thinking about getting the new slingbox but I'm not sure how well that would work with this box with either the hdmi or component connections (though component might still act up with slingbox because it can't handle 1080p?).

Spoke to an X1 cs rep a few hours ago. She told me that everything listed as 'coming soon' in on-demand was an error. A reboot led to me getting my old 'error #22' code when attempting to access on-demand content. She had me unplug the X1 for 20 seconds and then turn it back on. This resolved the on-demand issue. She suggested I repeat this if the error occurs again. I told her I really hope this doesn't happen again or at least frequently. She thinks it won't.

She said the volume thing is normal behavior. You cannot hold the volume up/down. You must press it repeatedly. I told her how annoying this was. I also griped that having to hit 'ok' after entering a channel number is ridiculous. I miss being able to simply enter the channel number and have it appear. I can't imagine my older father embracing this change if the day comes where he must do this one day. Right now his box thankfully is a legacy HD box.

She said the Android app was coming. I do have an iPad but my S4 would be a lot easier. Just another example of iOS getting the app first.

I will call billing tomorrow and see if they will waive the installation fee.

Someone suggested getting a universal remote. I like the feel of the X1 remote. I can live with it. But a backlight would just be so much better. Also there doesn't appear to be a proper way to return to 'live' TV. You just hit 'page up' is what I gather after you have skipped forward or backward.

My X1 makes noise. It isn't loud. It isn't a fan. It's just a noise. Beyond what my HD DVR did. It's annoying. Nothing is stacked above it. It just feels like such a step back. I value quiet electronics (my Mac Mini) and remember with no fondness my PS2 humming along during action. This sounds like a hum to me.

Honestly I'm really happy with the larger HD drive and the modern UI however I feel like the X1 isn't necessary a logical move forward. It just feels like a modern step with serious flaws. I can live with the humming but it's a shame it won't go away.

You will have to start at the beginning and FF/Skip to the point where you left off. Comcast is aware of this and hopefully will resolve soon.

I switched from FIOS recently and this X1 DVR is absolutely terrible. Aside from what you mention you can't extend programs while in progress. I also frequently get shows recorded in multiple parts because of some "interruption" and it seems to delete the show by itself. The box freezes up often where it won't respond to the remote for a while. I also hate the fact that the DVR starts deleting programs when I have like 40% capacity left. So many more things I hate but getting annoyed just thinking about it.

Make sure you use your 30 day guarantee, if you're not happy. You can get all of your money back.

It's hard for developers to develop apps for Android comparatively to iOS.

More than 90% of iOS users are on current firmware.
But the fragmentation is much higher with Android. There are many reasons for this.
Some being Android devices are 'designed by committee', where as Apple rejected this idea.

The vast differentiation in Android hardware practically means that many users have to buy new devices to get the latest software. Carriers have a hand in this as they benefit from added sales.

Compare that to Apple and you can have a phone years old and still be on the latest version.

Not hating on Android at all. iOS has plenty if issues too.

Lastly, I think I posted a link to an X1 app on Google Play when it was just the TV Remote. Sorry about that.

The X1 missed Dexter last night. No warning or error, it just didn't record it. It also removed the final episode of Dexter from the schedule for next week's recordings too.

Not good.

My X1 makes noise. It isn't loud. It isn't a fan. It's just a noise. Beyond what my HD DVR did. It's annoying. Nothing is stacked above it. It just feels like such a step back. I value quiet electronics (my Mac Mini) and remember with no fondness my PS2 humming along during action. This sounds like a hum to me.

Honestly I'm really happy with the larger HD drive and the modern UI however I feel like the X1 isn't necessary a logical move forward. It just feels like a modern step with serious flaws. I can live with the humming but it's a shame it won't go away.

Comcast offers an X1 back lit remote for $25.
