[X1-X2] Anyone else not like the new XI boxes?

I had another freeze up on the DVR as I was FF it too quickly so i had to do a hard reboot and the show I was watching reset bank to the beginning. This is a common occurrence as well as the frequent stalls. Between this and the basic management of the guide is very annoying. I feel like I am using a Microsoft product. I hate it.

I get a new update every night it seems like but I haven't experienced very many bugs. Unlike the old iguide where I felt like throwing the box out of my window.

I'm not a huge fan of it that's for sure. I get box lockups on 2 of the non DVR boxes. I get DVR lockups as well. I get DVR recordings that can't play on any box but the DVR (Anyroom? Surely you jest?). I'd be more proactive with customer support but I've already been hung up on twice while being super polite (and no callback to the number in case we get disconnected).

So yes...I don't like them.

My main DVR box runs just fine - my companion boxes seem to reboot on a nightly basis during 2-3am. They are slow and clunky at times also.

My XI boxes are sitting in a box. Fios came today. See you guys again when the sports packages are in HD.

It's an X1, not an XI

It is definitely better than when we initially got it in February or March. Still seems somewhat buggy though.

I love the X1 platform. Smooth, channels are crisp...

I've got not problems with the channels. It's the AnyRoom DVR and non DVR units locking up that are the problem.
