X2, no thank you. I hated the preview :/

FYI: you'll eventually get the update anyway, down the road it will be a mandatory update.

Re: [X1-X2] Xfinity X1 now available to New Customers

Chris-
It was there when I got home from work around 5pm last night - and then was gone about 30 minutes later - and has never come back.

Re: [X1-X2] Xfinity X1 now available to New Customers

As I posted in the other thread-

Live Extra app is now ONLY on the DVR - and only is for Olympic sports. Really thought they would've just added the app and allowed us to watch the Premier League Extra Time channels since they can't be bothered to add them.

Meh. Just another letdown.

However - this did just trigger another lightbulb. So - it looks as though they can only "stream" IP based feeds to the DVR (most likely due to it having the extra modem internally). So hmmmm....Down, the road - if they were to introduce IP only channels - it looks like you would indeed need the newer boxes if you had HD-only boxes on your other sets. So, this lends more to needing the Xi3 boxes since they'll be fed as an IP stream right from the DVR.

also I can confirm that the x2 preview guide remote code still works with the 1/29/2014 guide version and Comcast does not know why it is still there or if it is suppose to be there why is it still enabled in the consumer version of that build

reply to joejoejeo

they told about the app is that, "With an XFINITY TV package that includes CNBC and MSNBC, a valid Comcast ID and password, subscribers will have access to exclusive online Olympics HD content as well as NBCUniversal's streaming, live coverage of all 98 Sochi Olympics events (February 3-24, 2014) at NBCOlympics.com or through mobile devices with the NBC Sports Live Extra app."

Our area is supposed to get them by the end of this week. I am in no hurry for one though. I guess we are to test them or something. When we get one maybe I can post a video of it instead of photos maybe more helpful. Like a link to youtube..

Re: "New" X2 is Live

I had this since last Friday but my receiver is 131 instead of 130. And battery is less than 80 percent on most of mine boxes but one is at 80 percent.

Also with this new update I do not have the reported "overlay" bug

Gate-
The overlay bug is only on the HD boxes...

JoeJoeJoe-
Ask your buddies when the Live Extra app is showing up! And, will it only be on the DVR or all boxes? (Been wondering about this since the DVR has the extra "internet" modem inside..)

The DVR seems Much faster and more responsive with the x2 guide software than compared to the x2 preview guide

My 3 DVR's also got the Jan.29,2014 update and it does now say "New" instead of "preview". Also with this new update I do not have the reported "overlay" bug and everything seems to be working as it should. But there seems to be no new features with this new update either

I really hope Comcast will be adding some of the features that we all have been asking for a while now.
