Did this video help you?

Donald Williams: These boxes suck. They are slow and buggy. I can't watch any DVR recordings on the 2nd box. It starts playing the recording for about a minute and then say's "there's an error in the recording. try later". Both boxes are extremely slow to respond to commands.

Beauty: WOW and if it's so fast, WHY does the traffic app take so damn long to load?!?

alfonso hall: Can you set recordings from the boxes other than the DVR?? Mine was just installed about 1 hr ago. I called comcast they said wait about 24 hrs for everything to download

CJ Mick: Damn it's so shiny, and hot! I want that box, but my family can't afford it.

juskaws: i just got it and with the new update the transition animations is so slow. the live tv isnt always there anymore you have to click b and when you do that it blocks part of the information and i have no idea how to set reminders. the channel input is also annoying you have to put the channel in and then click enter which sucks because the numbers take forever to pop up so you end up clicking the same number twice.

Brent Thompson: How warm does the box get?

Ernesto Avilez: Thats a huge box.

Mikey8567: A few things for ya. I'm an installer of this system. #1 the remote will not change the inputs of on the TV. That was the old Comcast systems and the remote din't always work with changing inputs on all TV's. #2 There is a second gen X1DVR that has a smaller foot print then the Gen1 you have there. It also has a smaller "Brick power supply (about the size of your average laptop power supply. #3 you named off all those inputs and outputs on the back. The only ones that are used are the Coaxial in and out, HDMI out (marked To TV), the Component out (The new X1DVR's don't have that anymore), the optical out and the Composite out. The rest (other HDMI's, Ethernet, USB) are not in use at this time. #4 the title bar is no longer at the top, it's near the bottom. The DVR choice is no longer called DVR it's called "Saved". The bar now reads-> Guide Saved Ondemand Search Apps (and then a little gear meaning settings)<----, the little "Live TV" window is no longer there. So upgrade your firmware and you good to go! 

rknee46: Really good job BW......thanks for the info.

Johnny Rodriguez: HOW CAN I PUT MY GUIDE TO LOOK LIKE THAT

comcast cable: I absolutely love the Comcast Xfinity box. The Xfinity Box is so easy to use and navigate. Comcast has some awesome features, services, and channels.

J Will: I like the monday night raw lol but thanks for the video. I was thinking about picking up this service and the video helped make my mind up.

Robert Shelton: N such. N such n such n such........

Beauty: "fast forward up to 4 x"... you know that means four times? :/ I'd rather see a review from someone who knows their crap Quick question, why the freak would anyone get this? O.o Is this Comcast's way to moving people away from free online streaming? feed the dying net neutrality -_-

MrXxfuzzypancakes: If Comcast had sports packages like mlb extra innings or NFL Sunday ticket or NBA league pass I would get their tv service and this box but they don't 

ravenfn: This is a fantastic review. Comacast should be paying you for each view. Thanks, mi amigo! Well done.

alfonso hall: Just ordered it lol. They even gave me extreme 105 and 2 movie channels free for a year!

Ryan Harris: Would you recommend changing providers just for this box? I truly love ATT Uverse box and layout. The comcast box setup before this one was awful.

Rooftop923: Hey bwone nice video review but some thinks don't work for Chicago and please check your remote about change input because my remote it's same as yours and no botton for change input so I have to use tv remote and I don't have small tv at the corner for live tv Thanks

chadsem: Very thorough review and thanks. Sucks they dont have NFL Sunday ticket though! 

DJRosco82: I see you're in the Boston area! 851 NESN HD!! Best channel EVER! Looking forward to having this installed tomorrow-but I'm nervous about the XG5 internet gateway and my apple time capsule... 

Rob Fettner: Review was really great and in depth! Very much appreciated. Just wish we were able to see the remote as you were operating/navigating it so that I knew what button did what. I noticed the new remote is way different then my other one. Also, how do you create a favorite channel list?? I created a favorite channel list that I would go though to select shows since those were the main channels i watched. I hardly ever truly scrolled threw the main menu to look for shows if that makes sense.

mozart14: Can the box display the current channel instead of the current time?

Aaron E: Thank you for such an in-depth, informative review. We got this installed this morning, and I feel like your review enriched our experience as well as enhanced the value we're going to get from X1. Kudos!

Ruben Torres: You have the old X1 model/version The X1 had a recent update in march. It runs alot smoother and the whole layout of the guide/ On Demand is much better!!! Anyways the New X1 is awesome! 

Cole Issleb: Im getting X1 tomorrow and this really makes me more confident on switching from my older platform thank you for the really in depth review!! 

John Pavey: BWOne does on demand come with xfinity or do u have to pay separate?

raboub: Zzzzzzz boring

elemeno0pee: Great review. You say "sort of" a lottttt, lol.

thayden87: How do you change Imputs? 

Dave Cole: One of the best reviews I have ever seen... THANK YOU sir!

Eddie Parsons: FANTASTIC REVIEW!! Very indepth and just what I was looking for. Thanks!!!

reiluna010: I HATE COMCAST!!!! Terrible everything's, a completely Un-American corporation

Dale Williams: X1 is, simply put, the single worst entertainment decision I have ever made. Installation occurred on 10/11/13 and the audio has not worked from the first day. I have called Comcast countless times and worked my way up to "Regional Manager" and I have been told a different BS Story from every one of them. I will be dumping Comcast tomorrow if they do not resolve my problem. I caution everyone who is thinking about making the move to Comcast XFinity X1.DO NOT DO IT!!!!

JustinInAtlanta: Thanks for much for posting this. Very helpful review.

dutchieboy22: Thanks, very thorough and easy to understand!!!!

raubinas501: Ordered mine and got itinstalled. It works great!! 

Tull Man: Comcast customer support is horrible. And way to costly

Lee Smith: Thank you for the detail review. You help me make my decision to get comcast. Thanks. 

jcalex211: Cm punk!

breech99: x1 boxes overheat, software menus lock up and crashes a lot. Make sure you have new coax connections and possible use of amplifier. System uses a master/slave box setup for viewing, can't turn off. Controls are complicated, menus/submenus are difficult to navigate. Don't upgrade to the x1 platform. Stick with Motorola boxes from 2013-14. Much easier. Kiss principle.

pugs arehumans: Comcast Xfinity Signature support is a complete freaking joke. I worked as a tech listening to dumbass customers call in about their wireless issues. ITS NOT COMPLICATED. All us techs work from home, and are underpaid.

TheTrippleTKA: Is the DRV included with it or do you have to pay extra like you have to pay extra for HD (in this day and age)

joesphx19: Unless the box can allow you to alter the interface radically, there has been a major update. Actually after watching your video, the interface you have is far superior to the one I have received today. What I have is far less user friendly and is confusing..

Michael Ludgood: Thanks for the review. I am getting mine installed this month. Canceling TiVo

phallicinstrumentful: also, does this cable box differs from prev cable box when the EAS is activated? does it still switch channels to QVC and display the EAS info over a black screen, or have they completely retooled it for this new Xfinity box?

rjtherocker: Man the xbox one and this thing I hope play nice with each other

Kamal Amin: Awesome review, definitely helped me make a decision! Thanks!

Paul Cerezo: you can record 4 shows and watch live tv as well. There are 5 tuners on the X1

Manuel Prieto: Phone do I reset my X1 because the xfinity man installed it used and there was still old data on it also the boxes is not controllable by the X1 remote app it doesn't even show on
