Re: New Guides for SA/Cisco Areas (Info from Ted Hodgins Blog) Well Mike, do you have any STBs that are currently running On-Screen Guide versions 2.0 or 3.0, or an HD-DTA?
I didn't think any of those were available in our area yet.
From that webpage on the XR2 Remote:
The new XR2 Remote Control is rolling out with Comcast set-top boxes running the latest version of the on-screen guide - On-Screen Guide 3.0 (X1 Guide) and On-Screen Guide 2.0 (Barcelona), and with High-Definition (HD) Digital Transport Adapter (DTA) devices.
The following post is from Comcast's Ted Hodgins, Sr. Director, Video Product Development - Navigation, in Media & Entertainment, "New Guide for Scientific Atlanta Cable Boxes" blog and explains that X1 will initially be deployed to new customers.
@Nick, yes it should be around that same timeframe for Merrimack, NH as well that the X1 guide and platform would be available. New cable boxes and a professional installation would be required and there is likely an initial period where we will be deploying first to new customers.
