X1 box will not connect-RE: Error Code RDK-03036

X1 box will not connect-RE: Error Code RDK-03036

I did everything correctly to set up the X1 box, even chatted w/comcast; after hours on the chat, she finally said to get a new box or be charged for a Tech to come to my home.

So, my question is this:  Will getting a new X1 box work???  I've read that this Error code RDK-03036  is EVERYWHERE!

I just don't want to waste my gas and time going to a service center in my City to get a "different" X1 box, just to keep having the SAME ERROR....!   PLEASE HELP!

OR.....do they have a FIX for this error that I don't know about???

It's a wiring or connection problem. The small X1 boxes need to "talk" to the X1 DVR and RDK 03036 means the small X1 box cannot see the DVR across the wiring in your house.

Because they problem is most likely within your house you would probably be charged.

Can you go over how you have everything hooked up, splitters, amps etc. How do you know you've done everything correctly? Which box is having the error?
