Richard Thomas: And using a Xbox360 for a cable box to view your DVR movies or Netflix , hulu plus etc.
Richard Thomas: And for a DVR just use a Windows 7 PC and add a 4 tuner PCI card to it that works on Comcast ! You get all the channels you pay for with NO $ 20 fee's amonth ! h++p://xxx.amazon.com/Ceton-InfiniTV-PCIe-4-channel-CableCARD/dp/B003B4VLJQ
Richard Thomas: REALLY ! ? WOW You want to charge another $ 2.00 extra month on top of the DVR fee ? What really blows my mind is you want to charge $ 9.95 a month for a free service from Skype ! just to use your camera ! People really need to wake up your are getting ripped off for fee's when its free ! If you do it your self ! My Vizio Smart TV has a camera add on for FREE Skype !
porsche06: The remote does not turn off the box!!!
John Titor: I hate the x1, its really slow while scrolling through the guides ive had it freeze a few times , also one thing that really annoys me is that theres no reminder like on the old box i had ( but maybe i just havnt noticed it or something) i would much rather go back to my old box than use the X1
kammeedian: Also. Will we need a pricey DVR for every room or will sub boxes feed and command from a main or head DVR?
kammeedian: The box is so far advanced it has to be installed by an expert? But it's not so advanced that it won't stream our Netflix which has been around for years. My phone has done this for years!
V lora: Are you aware of a way to skip ahead through the guide by day like with the old remote that had the day +/ day - button?
schizowallflower: I have the X1 box and I'm really digging it. It was only $2 more a month than the DVr I was getting, which is a good deal. The menus look nicer, this On Demand is easier to find stuff, and the screensaver with news and weather is pretty nice. One thing I don't like is that the remote is missing a couple key buttons I used frequently on my other one; number one is Source. I have to use my TV's remote to switch Inputs, and Advance Day is missing as well. But overall I'm impressed with the device.
davva360: Getting my X1 box on Monday. Hoping it does not replace the cable modem and router set up I already have. Anyone know?
Robert Northrop: If I had this available when I switched from DISH to Comcast, I wouldn't have been compelled to buy a Tivo.....
Justin Kimball: I'm installing my first X1 out here in Washington (state) tomorrow. Wish me luck! Video was very informative, btw, since Comcast isn't training us on it worth a crap.
Ix GRUB xI M: X1 is available to triple play customers only. It will record 4 shows at once while watching a 5th. Right now it's 500g storage. Soon to be 1 TB of storage. I have it and there is no other box I've seen that even comes close. This box has Facebook, pandora and twitter built into it plus weather, sports and traffic apps as well.
Jason Sczynski: getting x1 on Thursday...
Jonathan Neal: $9.95 for Skype freak you comcast lmao I'll buy Xbox One and won't need X1 crap
qpMaseqp: my Rent fees is $50 WTF!
govian1: Bye bye Comcast. You have the WORST service possible.
jonjon P-jet: Bye bye iguide
ant5681: I think it has to do with the wrong account number or phone number assigned to the box
Eric Gonzalez: My display says dL34 what does that mean ???
LMV5953: 20 bucks a month more for a fancy TV guide? NO THANKS
Rondell Wright: Do it got to be a flat screen and I order mines yesterday with new internet box
captainvideojw: 500GB hard drive, not 1TB.
aellis722: when is this rolling out the the Indianapolis IN area
johnjarosz1: 6 tuners, not all areas have them all unlocked yet. But they will be. And yes everything will be backed up on the cloud
derekfderek: $19.00 monthly
looklookerlooking: Is this a digital dvr replacement , or will it add more $ to my monthly bill?
Frank Lopez: yes pace boxes
Frank Lopez: Ann Arbor Area it will Launch in July... that is what we are told in our meeting today... means new equipment too
Matthew Gould: X1 contains 5 tuners..but at release only 3 are active. Eventually the other 2 will be unlocked. 3 tuners means you can either DVR 3 shows with the option to watch one of your recordings, or DVR 2 shows and watch whatever you want. I am a Comcast technician and I took the course on how to install and maintain these today. I have to say, I'm pretty excited.
ProphetKirsch: 3 tuners from what I understand, but the cloud is right behind the corner
ProphetKirsch: it's comcast country in washington too, and we wont have it for like 6 months. surprised it's not in philly though.
ProphetKirsch: you do not have to have a dvr, we have regular HD versions as well. it's just market specific right now, brand new stuff. I know it's available in california and I think I heard the carolinas and I would assume Philadelphia since it's the main headquarters but only positive about california
ProphetKirsch: thats a good deal! I was told right now we only do professional installs with it
ProphetKirsch: not sure when it is comming to that market, I work for the company in washington and we are going to launch it in our market mid 2013 I was told
PumpUPdaBase: where do you live?
Donald Headley: i live in south jersey and i cant get it? crap sucks
adad2757: i believe the manufacturer is Pace
Isaac Tinajero: This has already came to the Sacramento area since Oct 30. I just got mine today so I would call but install is 50 $....
maezarr: The UI designers need to focus more on information density. The old motorola box actually has more information per screen!
Emil Sayad: i got this box today and i love it! I'm in the SF Bay Area and am a triple play customer
BWOne: No it's a custom UI. We will have a review and walkthrough videos up soon.
NickHimSeIf: Hmmm is this running off of android OS? I know motorola make most if not all comcast's boxes.
Cooljulian Channels 1: Can any Comcast customer get this or only if they have DVR
NoR2o9CaLi: Person asking about when's its in California I'm getting it on Tuesday and I live in northern Cali
RJ12473: I live in Philadelphia which is Comcast Country. When will the X1 box be available in my area???
XboxInformer360: Can anyone tell me when it will be coming to California. I am really geeky and am the type of person who just has to have the latest tech so thats why I want it as soon as possible. Also I read that it is only available to new triple play customers. This better not be true cause if it is I will be angry at Comcast and complain to them.
Townie5lax: I just ordered my service with the X1...how many DVRs does it have?
