Did this video help you?

Prince Vegeta: WWE Fan spotted, and confirmed. :D

Timothy Yoder: What model box is that? I've gone through 2 different X1 boxes trying to find the one like yours that has the input HDMI's. My TV unfortunately only has 2 HDMI inputs and I could really use those pass through inputs. I'm getting pretty ticked off because I thought there'd be 1 type of X1 box. 

Trent Blevins: Very good review, & very thorough. Thanks

Joe Wood: I have Time Warner. Their DVR boxes are ancient, slow, and just crap.I tried a Tivo which was way better but you can't get ANY on demand with TW's cable card with Tivo. If this merge does happen hopefully this thing you have becomes available. Good video. 

Michael Real: Nice!!!! Comcast

Dre Day: The most important thing that Comcast left out is the program reminder I can't set a reminder for a program sometimes I miss my program when comes on

Marc Melliza: You mentioned that you could change the inputs on the TV with the x1 remote...please share how???

JoeCnNd: 7:20 you can see where she's telling the other girl to high kick her. Lol.

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

Sharon Akins: It appears that you can no longer change the guide text size as you explain in the video.

jack rummel: I just ordered this and so thanks for the great review 

bridgebolt51: can you play media mkv on usb? thanks

Bharat Kelley: just bought the x1 system and well how do i change the inputs?

J Dood: I've never used a DVR before, so I was wondering can you change to a different channel and immediately rewind the program that's on to see what you missed? Or can you only rewind the stuff that has actually been shown on your TV screen?

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

Larkinchance: I thought your presentation and agreeable personality was excellent and I hope you received funds for you efforts on behalf of Xfinity.. You should be aware that many of us no longer trust these companies like MicroSoft, Comcast, Facebook and Google. They have betrayed us and made us realize that were are not customers but are a resource ripe for exploitation. At the beginning of this year with the introduction of the Xbox1 an entire suite of surveillance applications were found and only after a hue and cry that threatened to effect sales did MicroSoft disable them. They are still there awaiting reactivation at a later date. Did you crack Xfinity's box to see if there was a cam installed behind the glass. It might be a good idea. This is not far-fetched in that Comcast is positioning itself to collect data like Google only Comcast controls the cable itself. I cut my TV cord in 2006 but now I am asked to turn in my internet modem for a new and better one full of pay walls and restrictions. Comcast has a reputation of taking away what you are already paying for and selling it back to you for a higher price.

Rebecca Hector: I'm trying to set mine up, but a blue screen pops up and the power, remote, lights flash

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.

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

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.

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 -_-

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

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! 

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

Ernesto Avilez: Thats a huge box.

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

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

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.

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

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 

Brent Thompson: How warm does the box get?

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

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.

jcalex211: Cm punk!

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! 

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!

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

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

thayden87: How do you change Imputs? 

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

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... 

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.

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!! 

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.

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

raboub: Zzzzzzz boring

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

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

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.
