Re: X1 On Demand

I have been watching WGN America's Manhattan. Last weeks episode 10 was a no show. The available episodes jump from S1 Ep9 to S1 Ep11.

I think it is coming close to the season finale for this show. I would look to see they are playing this episode along side the next episode. If that is the case it may be locked out by the network.. Great show, I watch it!

Re: X1 On Demand

There was an issue with On Demand not loading new material in some markets. Check later on tonight if it's there, I have that episode in my market. I agree, I like that show as well.

Re: X1 On Demand

Is there a difference between "X1 On Demand" and the On Demand that is available to TiVo customers?

Problem Solver

Re: X1 On Demand

this link is a year old they may have updated it , but is is pretty close to it. The xod still comes from the same comcast source, but the menu is tivo.

Re: X1 On Demand

I recently upgraded to the X1 Xfinity platform and am having 2 issues.

  1. When I go to On Demand and want to a view a show that played the night before it says “null” off to the right and doesn’t give me the option to play the show.
  2. The first day I had upgraded my system, On Demand worked in the sense that it gave me the option to hit play but once it played it froze in the first few seconds on numerous different shows, now I can’t even watch them.

I rebooted my system last night and still says Null. My DVR works fine in viewing shows again but not On Demand which made me miss one of last weeks shows cause of it.

The first thing I would do is call in. Have them provision the equipment. What happens when you try other xod titles?

On demand not working on x1 boxes and not able to stream on-line

When trying to watch on demand on my x1 boxes I get an error code XRE-22 SRM-901F. I have called and a representative tried rebooting the boxes twice and still does not work. when trying to watch on-line I get a "subscription required" error. Seems like there is something wrong with my account, not the hardware. Help please

No solution yet. Somebody is supposed to be calling me. 40 minutes on the phone this morning and it was a complete waist of time.
Problem Solver

Re: On demand not working on x1 boxes and not able to stream on-line

this is usually caused by the equipment needing be provisioned. Call billing to check that the proper rate codes are applied and ask to re-provisioned the boxes....

Re: On demand not working on x1 boxes and not able to stream on-line

Same issue...box has been "reprovisioned" twice...waiting another 72hrs for some new fix... This seems to me to be an easy fix.

I think there are over 8 million x1 boxes on the market now. There are only so many engineers to go around..

Re: On demand not working on x1 boxes and not able to stream on-line

We just had Comcast service installed yesterday & were running into the same exact error message when we tried to watch premium channel shows (i..e Game of Thrones) On Demand on tv only (viewing online worked just fine). Called Comcast today & had a delightfully helpful service rep who fixed our issue. Honestly, I can't tell you the exact steps she took, but she mentioned there was an outstanding work order on our account that could have hung up things. She closed that out, rebooted our machine remotely & had me change a few settings that shouldn't impact On Demand (i.e. video output resolution). Perhaps call again?

 

Also, we had the misfortune of having an AWFUL service tech do our install. I could write about that all by itself, but will refrain since this is not the place for it (I've already submitted that feedback to the service rep today). I bring this up because being new to Comcast & the X1 platform, we did not realize you shouldn't completely power down the box. Since the service tech didn't take the time to bother educating us on ANYthing yesterday, we just assumed that it should turn off. The remote won't turn it off (by design, unbeknownst to us), but we thought maybe the remote was malfunctioning & so we instead manually pushed the blue button to power down. Thankfully, the customer service rep with whom I spoke today informed me of this. You probably are already aware of this, but just in case not....

Re: On demand not working on x1 boxes and not able to stream on-line

Yes never press the power button on the box....The resuts are never good.....

This happens allot with new installs. Some how they are not provisioned right from the get go. Lets hope that Brandon was able to get done for you.

Re: X1 On Demand

when i press watch it goes to the black screen with the 3 blinking dots in the middle and stays there

 

i called comcast yesterday and a tech person "fixed it" for me, but now it doesn't work again, so that sucks.

Re: X1 On Demand

The firmware version on your box is up to date.  All signal levels look great (even historical plots)

 

I sent a bunch of refresh signals to the box as well.  The last signal should reboot your box.

 

Please ensure all connections between the wall plate and cable box are correct and secure.

Re: On Demand content won't load

I'm having the same issue as well. I select a show from On Demand and then it just appears to be continuously loading. No error code is shown. I then went to Device Settings and selected Restart This Device. After the box restarted I went to try another show from On Demand but I'm still having the same problem. Please help...What should I do?

Re: On Demand content won't load

Update to my prior post.... Eventually an error code did pop up. It is XRE-22-SRM-8101

I am restarting the device again as per what the error message suggested...

Update#2
Restarting device worked this time. On Demand shows are now properly loading.

Re: X1 On Demand Suggestion

The On Demand function has Movies, TV, Kids, Networks, Local, etc.

It needs a Favorites tab.  It would make things much simpler to have all favorited series available from one area.  Most likely, you would see more use of On Demand instead of DVR for shows that are routinely available the day after.

 

When first installed, there was something like that, but the Favorites feature has been of little use in later updates.

Re: X1 On Demand continually getting error code XRE-22-SRM-901F

I am having the same issue as everyone else is...On Demand...free movies/shows...all I get when trying to watch is the same error code...on all boxes XRE-22-SRM-901F....We also have issues when trying to rent - will not allow - and only way to watch is to buy?  After a week of this and doing the rebooting and checking all connections etc. myself...I called the service center today, they ran some re-boots to the main box which should help all boxes....while I was on the phone with the service person I thought it was fixed because it was finally letting me use the On Demand and did get me as far as picking SD or HD..so I thought it was fixed...as it never got that far before, however ... that is as far as it will let me go....I select to watch...select HD or SD and it just shows the dots then the error code...again.   The service person did tell me that they have been having this problem a lot....obviously....but what is going on and when will this be fixed?

Re: X1 On Demand continually getting error code XRE-22-SRM-901F

This is something that usually only happens to new x1 customers. In most cases a call to billing and some provisioning will solve the issue. In my case they had to put a teir two ticket in for the issue. It is just the roll of the ⚁ ⚀ as to who you will get on the phone and if they know how to fix the issue..

Re: X1 On Demand

Had x1 installed Saturday morning 10/25. Tried to watch OnDemand and kept getting the same error message XRE-22-SRM-901F. Numerous calls to comcast - unplug box, refresh signals sent. Nothing worked. Comcast sent another tech out later that day  and he couldn't resolve. Said if it didn't work by tomorrow to call again. Issue not resolved. So i called again went thru the whole thing unplug box they send a refresh signal. Nothing worked. Now they're sending ANOTHER tech out this Saturday. No one can tell me what the issue is let alone resolve it. So annoyed.
