Could you give me the number one more time? I may have dialed it wrong. I really hope that this can get sorted out...

Error SRM-3 when accessing onDemand content...

I always get the error SRM-3 when using ondemand. It usually happens when using the play next episode feature. Exiting out and going back into the episode usually works. This has been happening ever since I got x1. Luckily i mainly dvr everything. But does anyone know a fix?

X1 on demand tv shows

 I have been in Florida for the  month of October watching the new season programming on demand, I returned home to find when I go to on demand to catch up on the new season programming it's only showing the old ones. How can I get a new seasons  on my own television that I'm getting on my iPad? Thank you

No clue.  Try rebooting your X1 box?

Re: X1 On Demand

On demand has not worked for almost two weeks.  Any tv show, movie, premium channel program returns an SRM-8111 error message.  Multiple phone calls and open tickets later all I know (or "know") is that "this is a known issue" and "they're working on it."  

 

I'm paying for a service that Comcast KNOWS doesn't work.  They have no solution for me.  I can keep waiting, they tell me.  No one will call me, but maybe eventually it will just start working if I keep checking it every couple hours.  Maybe. For two weeks.

 

If anyone else has received this error code and had a better resolution would you share?  I only have 6 days of my 30 day cancellation period left and I would like to cancel my service (thus wasting the hours and hours I've put into set up and tech support over the past three weeks, but oh well..not paying over $200/month for service that doesn't work, that they know doesn't work, and that they can't seem to fix.)

Re: X1 On Demand

If it is a known issue, it must be localized in some way.  My On Demand has been working for months in Houston.

can you successfully access on demand content from web site xtv.comcast.net or any smart device using the xFinity TV app?

Re: X1 On Demand

After 20 years with directv I made the switch to back to comcast.  In the past few weeks, I've now lost more time rebooting my receiver than I ever lost due to satelite rain fade.  While I always knew the rain fade problem marketing was bogus, I never expected the reliability on the comcast side to be this poor.  Oh wait... another X1 Error Code: XRE-0305, on demand not available!

Re: X1 On Demand

If I was having as much trouble with my X1 system and its two DVR's and two RNG150 companions, I would schedule a tech visit to check my connections.

On demand having trouble srm-521

I seem to always have this issue. srm-521 error happens all the time and it never seems to be fixed in a few minutes. I've reset the box and the issue persists. Sometimes for days.

Re: On demand having trouble srm-521

Hi Cpreimer,

 

Your box had an incorrect bootfile on it. I've provisioned it and did a reset. I did see some signal issues on your account so if this issue persists, then you'd want to have a tech come out.

I'm assuming you got an SIK - self install kit.

 

Call Comcast and schedule a tech visit to check your signal quality.  The X1 System requires a very strong signal both ways.  Splitters are a known issue.

Re: On Demand not working

Comcast has been sending me all kinds of solicitations to get X1 and I am so glad

I haven't gotten it.

 

On Demand page up button on the remote for NBC channels, is locked.  You can't page up on

NBC shows.  Very annoying, since I sometimes can't finish a show and a few days later

watch it using page up to jump to where I left off.  But Now I cant.!!!!  I have to watch the entire

show plus the commercials I have already seen. 

So I am not watching NBC anymore!

Re: X1 On Demand

For what it's worth, after hours and hours on the phone and many more hours troubleshooting, I finally requested to just swap out the new X-1 dvr box I'd been sent and see if that solved the problem.  It did.  On Demand worked fine as soon as the new box was installed.  It wasn't the signal strength, or connection issues...it was simply the box (which I'd been sent new, direct from Comcast.)  I was told by tech support while setting up the second box that the "known issue" I'd been waiting almost 3 weeks to have fixed was basically that On Demand didn't work with some of the new X-1 boxes "for some reason."  Wish someone had told me that when I first called rather than expecting me to sit around with no service while they attempted to figure out what's wrong with their equipment.

 

Anyway, it was *incredibly* annoying, but swapping out the box for a new one solved the problem for me, without tech support phone calls, tickets, technician visits etc. and might be worth trying.

Re: X1 On Demand

I know that the issue with On Demand programs occasionally freezing for a few seconds has been out there for a while, and most of the responses are "It's a signal issue."  So that doesn't explain why I've had X1 for a month and had no problems with On Demand shows until this weekend when I started having the freezing problem.  Does signal strength go up and down by itself without anything being touched?  If so, to me that's a Comcast issue and I should be credited every time I have that problem.  FYI my equipment is a Pace v3 DVR and 2 Xi3 boxes.  I know you can only check the signal on the DVR box, and the signals were all fine while the freezing was happening.

Posting in this forum probably won't fix it. Calling the X1 help line and possibly getting a tech out to your house is the place to start.

Re: X1 On Demand

How long does it take for new episodes to be available on demand?  It's Tuesday night now and I'd like to watch some shows I missed from Sunday.

 

The Librarians (TNT)

Walking Dead (AMC)

90 Day Fiance (TLC)

 

Eclectic taste I know.  But I can't watch the most recent episode (11/29) for any of them.  I can watch all the episodes from 11/22 and before.  It's frustrating because if I go to TNT's website, I can watch the latest Librarians episode on my laptop.

Re: X1 On Demand

Did you search for them?  I found the latest episode of The Librarians in On Demand.

 

I find it's better to search for something rather than to rely on those thumbnails in Recent, etc.

Re: X1 On Demand

That sort of worked.  

 

For "The Librarians", if I go to "search", the most recent episode is not listed.  

 

If I go to Demand --> Sunday night --> Librarians --> Watch Now then the episode is listed.

 

If I go to Demand --> Sunday night --> Librarians --> All Episodes then the episode is not listed.

 

Maybe something wrong with how the episodes are indexed?

Re: X1 On Demand

I continue to notice quite a bit of quirkiness with the on demand system.  Last night we watched a show that originally aired last Wednesday (8 days prior) on ABC and it wasn't available in HD.  Then we tried to watch another show that aired the night before (Tuesday) on NBC and it wasn't available, but other Tuesday night shows on NBC were there.  Is there an actual reason for this happening, or is it just glitches in the system?

Re: X1 On Demand

I am having issues watching Free Movies on demand. It's not with all titles only a few two being Hunger Games and the other being White House down. It's been going on for a while now and its quite annoying. I have restarted my X1 platform and still no results.

Why is Xfinity 1 missing On Demand episodes?

I decided to wait a few weeks after some TV series started before beginning my viewing so that I could watch multiple episodes On Demand.   When going to watch Season 3 of The Blacklist and to catch up on some Gotham I found that Xfinity 1 only offers the past 3-4 episodes and that you cannot go to the beginning of the season.

 

That's just ridiculous.  Why don't you offer all available episodes?  Clearly the networks have released the episodes so it must be policy within Comcast.

Easy fix. Simply record them...

Also, availability of previous episodes is rarely controlled by Comcast. This is usually controlled by the producers of the program...

Re: Why is Xfinity 1 missing On Demand episodes?

Well if I could go back in time and record them, I would.  Now that know Comcasts On Demand programming is lacking I'll make sure to set up recordings at the beginning of the season.  Won't help me (or any viewer) that hears about a trending series mid-season though.

 

I guess I'll just use Netflix to binge them when the season is fully released.

Before I posted my response to your post, I checked what both Netflix and Hulu had available in regards to Gotham. You should have done the same before you posted this.................

I clearly stated "when the season is fully released".

 

I realize that you are trying to help here. It's not something that you can resolve though.  I'm frustrated that Comcast isn't able to make the full library of released episodes available.  Period.

You missed something I said. The producers of the program usually control this. In the case of Gotham, you need to take this issue up with FOX and the producers of Gotham, not Comcast....
