Quote: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.
