bridgebolt51: can you play media mkv on usb? thanks
jack rummel: I just ordered this and so thanks for the great review
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?
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
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
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.
JoeCnNd: 7:20 you can see where she's telling the other girl to high kick her. Lol.
Rebecca Hector: I'm trying to set mine up, but a blue screen pops up and the power, remote,
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.
Bharat Kelley: just bought the x1 system and well how do i change the inputs?
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
o Smido: I work for comcast it's my first week and the x1 seem to be the worst crap
ever lol I guess it's everywhere lol.
chadsem: Very thorough review and thanks. Sucks they dont have NFL Sunday ticket
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...
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.
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.
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 -_-
rknee46: Really good job BW......thanks for the info.
alfonso hall: Just ordered it lol. They even gave me extreme 105 and 2 movie channels
free for a year!
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.
Johnny Rodriguez: HOW CAN I PUT MY GUIDE TO LOOK LIKE THAT
ravenfn: This is a fantastic review. Comacast should be paying you for each view.
Thanks, mi amigo! Well done.
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
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.
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
jcalex211: Cm punk!
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!
Beauty: WOW and if it's so fast, WHY does the traffic app take so damn long to
mozart14: Can the box display the current channel instead of the current time?
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
Robert Shelton: N such. N such n such n such........
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!!
Eddie Parsons: FANTASTIC REVIEW!! Very indepth and just what I was looking for. Thanks!!!
Tull Man: Comcast customer support is horrible. And way to costly
Brent Thompson: How warm does the box get?
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
raubinas501: Ordered mine and got itinstalled. It works great!!
elemeno0pee: Great review. You say "sort of" a lottttt, lol.
raboub: Zzzzzzz boring
Blues Garcia: All the cable and Internet companies are the same!! So all of them still
rip you off and with a slow Internet
thayden87: How do you change Imputs?
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
John Pavey: BWOne does on demand come with xfinity or do u have to pay separate?
dutchieboy22: Thanks, very thorough and easy to understand!!!!
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.
Lee Smith: Thank you for the detail review. You help me make my decision to get
reiluna010: I HATE COMCAST!!!! Terrible everything's, a completely Un-American
Ernesto Avilez: Thats a huge box.
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.
Dave Cole: One of the best reviews I have ever seen... THANK YOU sir!
