The skip ahead function has been removed. The is no correlating button on remote. Whether it can be programmed separately like the 30 sec skip is unknown. We're told no. As far as the reminder function, I have yet to see that option as well.


Left, as far as your guide being clunky, it should not be. Something is wrong signal wise. Without seeing it it's hard to tell. It could be ingress or high transmit. The x1 box is basically a cable modem and needs to have good signal coming to it and going from it.

It's not the signal (the house was rewired about a month before the X1 was set up) but more that with different program lengths the guide appears to move jerkily ... also sometimes when holding down the button to move forward a few days it will start slow and then speed up and overshoot. It does seem to be easier to move the guide when the channel I want is the top channel, but the X1 usually sets it as the 2nd channel. Search has more options, but the results are displayed oddly, especially for sports. So sometimes it's still easier to find programs by channel.


I've found and duplicated one annoying bug with cancelling scheduled recordings before they happen, and having them still record. If I have set up a recording for a few days from now, and I decide I don't want to record it and cancel it, the next day (sometime between 2 am & 8 am) it will return to scheduled recordings as if I didn't cancel it. Only if I cancel a recording on the day it is supposed to record does the cancellation hold. If I have 2 recordings set up for the same time in the future, and decide I want to cancel 1 because I want to record a 3rd recording instead, the next day the first recording will be back on the scheduled programming list and record and the new 3rd program will not be on the list and not record.

I had to get an active return drop amp. We had an outage all day yesterday in Houston. No phone, TV, Internet. I had withdrawal.



The X1 keeps resetting resolution to 720P. Very annoying.

ComcastKara in the forums said they changed the power off on the remote on purpose. Whatever.

You can still turn it off from the box.

The new Send To TV feature works on my DVR. I was surprised, being I'm still on the 5/23/13 firmware.

Gone from the settings menu? Or literally isn't illuminating from the front of the box?

Had two x1 s installed today....no Comcast installer or customer service person able to explain operation! The x1 does record four programs, but both x1s record the same programs! Not possible to program different programs on the two units. Plus, both units have the program lineup for Central NJ, not my Ny area (Long Hill) lineup! again, no one able to explain......units recognize my town in the weather page. Graphics are excellent.
