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

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."

What is the Live Extra app?

Pretty sure they're referring to 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.

Yes, from Ted Hodgins on the Comcast Support forum (»forums.comcast.com/t5/X1/X1-DVR-···65#M8969 ):
quote:
X2 is our internal naming convention.

X2 is not a customer-facing name that we will use in any direct-to-consumer marketing. So apologies for that confusion.

This is still the X1 Platform that cloud DVR will be running on. No shift in gears. The guide interface will change (improvements all around) and our internal name is still X2.

Outwardly this is still the X1 Entertainment Operating System ...

LOL. I dunno how many times I've explained that in this thread. It's in the X1 FAQ here on the site as well. But now that Ted has said it, I guess people can stop spazzing about X2 somehow being a separate product from the X1 stuff.

X1 is the branding Comcast is using, it's what they spent millions of dollars advertising. "X2" has always been a codename, and has always been reported that way in industry articles.

Well, all 3 of my boxes (2 HD, 1 DVR) updated to the "New" XRE Build - dated 1/29/14 this morning. When you go to the About tab, it actually shows "New" and no longer says "Preview".

Notes:
1) On the HD boxes - they are now on the 1/29/14 XRE build, and 1/17/14 STB build. The new XRE build DID NOT fix the Guide overlay issue. If you hit Guide, then Guide again - the "Trending, Kids, Movies, Sports" menu is laid over top of the guide - and you can barely read it. I never use this feature - but, it's definitely a noticeable bug.

2) DVR remains on the 12/10/13 STB build. After playing around a little bit, I really don't notice many changes. There are no new apps - so I'm still waiting a few days more I guess before we get to see the Live Extra app and see how this IP streaming is going to work.

I'm sure others will pick up on some differences...

Re: Baby Steps

No new changes as of this morning, 2/1.

Really wish they'd push out a new XRE build if they have one ready - because this latest STB build on the HD boxes has made things sluggish combined w/ the 1/22 server build.

DVR has not updated at all.

Well - woke up, and my 2 HD STB's pulled a new STB Firmware.

They went from 12/10/13 to 1/17/14 - Version PR150BN_1.3.2s4_PRODsd

It actually screwed a major thing up. If you pull up the guide - and hit guide again - it now overlays the Favorites, Trending, etc. options over top of the guide - and you can barely read it.

However, this is still an X2 preview mode. XRE Version remains at 37P5, dated 1/22/14.

The DVR will not pull any update as of this time.

Assuming this may be a prep step before the real rollout.
