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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
