I had that problem consistently with the X1 box. My. Tv would freeze at times for 20 min or so, I got so tired of them saying these boxes have bugs. I got rid of the X1 box. Call them get a ticket number from them and when it happens again ask for a credit

Turned out it was an error in a "billing code" according to the billing department.  They corrected the code and DVR now works.  The code got changed when they gave us a credit on our bill, and whoever gave us the credit didn't change the code back to what it's supposed to be.  The COMCAST person in billing was very polite and helpful.
