Did this video help you?

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

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

Michael Real: Nice!!!! Comcast

Just Me: What's the review now for 2015? CC still is a nightmare? 

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! 

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

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.

bridgebolt51: can you play media mkv on usb? thanks

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

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?

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.

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

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 though! 

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!

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... 

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

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 awesome! 

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?

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

Ernesto Avilez: Thats a huge box.

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 principle.

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.

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

byrnegaming1021: Hear me out here. TNA needs someone from wwe who will draw a big name. But not like Jeff hardy and Anderson. They need something like Anderson that will call out wwe on a regular basis. That will interest wwe fans and that will draw for TNA. Only if the TNA creative doesn't mess it up. What they really needed was cm punk but that's out of the question now. Anyone agree with me?
