Re: New Guides for SA/Cisco Areas (Info from Ted Hodgins Blog)

Comcast's Ted Hodgins (aka "ComcastTeds") just posted this update on the Comcast Help and Support Forum (»forums.comcast.com/t5/XfinityTV-···5#M57148 ):

Re: Xfinity Rollout Schedule
edited 10-09-2012 04:56 PM

On-Screen Guide 2.0 is a short term bridge as we work to get our On-Screen Guide 3.0 (X1) into more areas this year and into 2013.

We continue to test and trial the new cloud-based X1 guide on our Cisco RNG cable boxes and the plan would be to deliver the X1 experience (On-Screen Guide 3.0) on the Cisco RNG 200N and the Cisco 150N cable boxes by the end of 2013.

The long term plan is to get all of our newest cable boxes (regardless of hardware manufacturer or geography) onto a common more advanced on-screen guide starting in 2013 to provide a more consistent experience. That would be On-Screen Guide 3.0 or X1.

On-Screen Guide 3.0 »xfinity.comcast.net/x1/

Currently available to new HD Triple Play customers in Augusta, Boston, Atlanta and Chattanooga.

Additional locations are scheduled for 2012 and 2013. ...

Short term, all of our areas where we use Cisco or Scientific-Atlanta branded cable boxes ... are expected to receive a guide update and new features including DVR Manager and Caller ID.

We do have these new features out to about 12% of our Cisco-SA footprint and the plan is to get these new features out to all areas as soon as possible.

Ted Hodgins is now saying that the S26 Guide deployment will be finished as soon as possible instead of by the end of the year. (See last line in previous post.)

In a post in another thread on that forum (»forums.comcast.com/t5/XfinityTV-···5#M57145 ) he was a bit more precise:

All Cisco and Scientific-Atlanta cable boxes in all areas (including your area) will be getting some sort of guide update and improvements. That process is already underway. It is a site by site roll-out so the deployment date will vary for each area.

We are scheduled to start deployments up again in November and continue adding these features in each location into early 2013.

I don't have a date just yet that I can provide for your area.

Is this article talking about the SA/Cisco update to the S26 Guide?

I don't think so since Motorola DVRs are mentioned as being upgraded in the footnotes. It could be part of the Motorola A30 upgrade.

OK, thanks, I missed that "motorola" in those tags. Makes sense as 80% of Comcast's system uses Motorola.

I just checked my box and we didn't get the update. I went online to see if it would give me the ability to see my shows already recorded but it's still the same as it used to be and only allows me to see shows upcoming to be recorded. Maybe next time (10 years later, lol).

telcodad I love following you on the forum but you didn't have to send me to another thread! A simple, when hell freezes over would have sufficed.

Well thank you, and I don't believe you'll have to wait until then. According to a recent statement on this thread [yeah, another one ] on the Comcast Help and Support Forum »forums.comcast.com/t5/XfinityTV-···1#M56806 the Motorola A30 update should reach you sometime early next year:
We are deploying this guide update (and this new functionality) to new locations regularly with the goal of 100% deployment in early 2013. Thanks for your patience.
