Comcast Users Can Get a Sneak Peek at New X2 Set Top Right Now
Users in our Comcast forum
have discovered a way to get an early sneak peak at the GUI for Comcast's new X2 set top box. Users with the company's relatively new X1 set top box (slowly making its ways to most Comcast markets) purportedly can press Exit, Exit, 9,2,9,2 on their remotes in order to load an early build of the X2's new design. Not all of the functionality is available (like the program recommendation engine) and the apps appear buggy (since it's technically not released), though users seem impressed with the speed of the GUI. The X2 is officially supposed to arrive to some Comcast customers "later this year," and will include a number of new bells and whistles including the ability for remote cloud DVR storage.
