Go to above link and confirm that you can stream Xfinity from your browser. I had an issue getting the Xfinity app to register on my 360 until I changed to alternate primary User ID (sample pic above) instead of my private name@email address that I log in by to check my Comcast statement, ect.

Thanks, that was part of it, but not all of it.
it finally switched over to an 802 error which lead me to figuring out what you are pointing out (wasnt using the correct user ID) but then went back to a 999. after a couple more attempts it worked.
im guessing a 999 is just a timeout of unknown origin?

for those of you whom it matters to, be aware that once it did finally authenticate, it also reset my cable modem.

Ditto here...modem had an uptime of >30 days up to activating the silly Xfinity app and now it is back down to 0 days!?

Maybe this has to do with the 'not counting against the soft cap' part of Xfinity stream?
