Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Xfinity Stream App SERVER ERROR::8001

Since the announcement on the Xfinity Tv Go app that this would be changing to Xfinity Stream on the 28th over 95% of my recorded shows will get this error when I try to watch them. I was hoping after update It would fix the issue but it still reads this error. I have tried redownloading the app ,tried logging out and back in and it still does not work. PLEASE FIX THIS asap. Using a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Been using this for 2 years and now now the last 2 weeks it's been useless.

It's very annoying and an inconvenience to constantly not be able to watch my shows because of the error code or because their is no syncing between my dvr and app

8001 means the asset shows available but is not playable (corrupt, missing storage, etc). should be available on the home X1 equipment.

I am having the same issue as well. No matter what video that I try to watch, it gives me the same error message. I have tried to uninstall the app and reinstalled the app as well as restarted my Samsung tablet a few times but still receiving the same error messsage when trying to watch a recorded show. 

 

I thought also that after the update everything would work but am still receiving the same error message.  Need to know what to do or any suggestions to try to get this working.

Same here.  Trying to stream any of my cloud recordings before Feb 24 now fail with error 8001.  Another untested app update?  Was the cloud recording format changed on Feb 24 so the new Xfinity Stream app can't use them.  Aren't we all getting tired of paying full price and not getting full performance?

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Having the same error code 8001 and now today not all the shows will load on my Ipad that are on my DVR.  Shows play fine on the DVR just the Steam TV app is not woring.  I guess that doesn't matter because even if I tried to play them I would get an error code 8001.  It seems like anything that is very recent will play but everything else gives me error code 8001.  Even shows I have watched previously on my IPAD now give me the error code.

 

I called multiply times since last week.    Today I was told its a new app and they are working on it.  Very Frustrating as each time I call they want to go thru the whole process even when I give them the CR#.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Your engineers resolved the issue all right, not by fixing the problem but by just deleting all recordings that could no longer be played.  All my cloud recordings before Feb 24 are now gone.  Absolutely pathetic Comcast.

Even new recordings have the issue I have 2 that recorded last night that get same error. I spent 2 hours on the phone with a Specialist I must say the Specialists sure are Special kept telling me to do the same thing over and over again to no avail guess what still doesn't work.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

I get this error message about 85% of the time.  The other 15% of the time when I do get the video to pull up it is not all there.  I just tried watching a show that recorded for 35 minutes but when I watch it, it is only 8 minutes long.  It does the same thing on my PC and Ipad.  It is normal on my TV.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Same problem here.  It is galling in the extreme to pay this much and have constant, and I do mean constant issues.  I've been in communications for 24 years and one of the first things you learn is to test, emulate and research every "upgrade" before you implement it (not in that order).  As soon as they iron out the issues with P-vue or Sling, <Edited for violating forum guidelines: "Circumvent Language Filter">

Dear Comcast Dan,

 

It's 3/19/2017.  Has this issue with the new Xfinity Stream TV been resolved?  I am unable to view any of the recordings from my X1 DVR on the Xfinity Stream TV app on my Ipad or Iphone.  Both have most current version of IOS.  I am viewing on my home network via comcast wifi.  The error returned is Playack Issue :: 8001.  I have screen shots for 4 different channels, 1 hour programs that are recorded for 15:50 minutes on the app but I am able to veiw the entire hour on the TV using the X1 DVR box.  

 

I pay $140 a month for this service and there is always something that is not working properly.  

 

Please advise the status of this issue.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

I have been getting this error since the App upgrade to Stream - i just now tried to plan On Demand content, and there is now a TV GO playback option, and I selected that and it worked and started playing.  I have an open ticket with Comcast and they did not provide me with this informaiton, I stumbled upon it myself.  I am still NOT able to watch any recorded content.  That blows up with Server Error 8001.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Same issue. Has been going on quite some time. Some recorded shows get the 8001 playback issue error while others do not. There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason to it that I can figure out. Except that I noticed tonight I might have deleted a recording I had already watched previously, then tried to access a recording within the same tv series on the same channel and then got the playback error. Anyone else experience that?
Anyway, I have rebooted my X1 box, cleared cache on my iPhone, signed in and out of the mobile app but I am still receiving the error.
Hope there is a fix in the works. Following this thread for updates.

Still waiting. How is this not fixed yet?

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Still getting this error as well but within the past day now added the problem of buffering and re-looping on any pre-recorded shows. Completely unwatchable at this point unless I watch the show on demand.

New Poster

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

same here. buffering looping and now with server 8001 errors. I can't even watch live tv. This has been going on since 2/28 and it is now April. When is this getting fixed?

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Comcast convinced me to give up 3 of my 4 DVR boxes & replace with ROKUs - & it's been a nightmare for over a month!  None of my recordings (from the same day) will play at night on any streaming TV or other device- TV's say "Oops! Something went wrong!" iPads say "8001 error."  

 

Ironically, it works in the early morning hours.  I think it has to do with Comcast not having purchased enough "band width" or something for streaming during peak hours.  It can't be my internet connection because that comes from them, also.  Clearly, many others are having the same problem that Comcast has not resolved.  I wasted $120 (3x $40 per ROKU).  As so as I have a day off work I'm switching all my services!

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

I'm having the same issue and it all started after the most recent app update. Getting playback error 8001. This is extremely frustrating as our cable bill is as much as a car payment and yet the system isn't working properly. Has anyone received an ETA on getting the bug resolved?

Same error in CT on latest ver of app and fresh install on iOS. Trying to watch any AMC show.

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

Still seeing this issue here, too with recorded content on the DVR not playing on the iPad with error 8001.

 

It is not consistent, some content does play, you just have to find it.  C'mon, comcast/xfinity, your product is way to expense for it it to consistently not work.

8001 means the asset shows available but is not playable (corrupt, missing storage, etc). should be available on the home X1 equipment.

I keep getting some Disney error message when I am trying to steam ABC on the iPhone app. Is there a solution yet?
New Poster

Re: Xfinity Stream SERVER ERROR::8001

I was getting this 8001 error with increasing frequency on my Andriod devices. It only affected certain shows with no rhyme or reason. I tried restarting and reinstalling to no avail. Finally I changed my wifi from 5 to 2.4 GHz and the shows started streaming just fine. Fingers crossed that this will fix it moving forward.

People have been complaining abt this issue from a YEAR ago. I’m having the same issue. So, your engineers need how many more YEARS to fix this issue ?????? I’m cancelling there are no ‘engineers’ working on anything.  This is just a lame excuse Comcast gives to keep you paying every month. These alleged engineers are in the Philippines that retort everything back like a parakeet.... They have about the same capacity of solving issues as a bird. They repeat everything back and do absolutely nothing.
