Comcast Users Can Get Another 'Unofficial' Sneak Peek at the X2
Last month Comcast users in our forums discovered that they could get an unsanctioned sneak peek at Comcast's latest and greatest set top box platform (the X2) if they simply plugged a few codes into the current X1 set top
. Comcast quickly locked down the functionality once it was discovered by the public, but leaked code appears to have emerged again. Users in our forums
note that users can now enter "Exit Exit X T W O (9896)" on their remote to get a new glimpse at the shiny new GUI -- sans some of its more interesting features like cloud DVR recording. Comcast's Sree Kotay Tweeted about
this latest code, suggesting (unless Kotay's wandering off of the reservation) this time the preview probably won't be closed down.
