I just got off the phone with a sales rep to try to score the X1 on the digital perferred package. The sales rep told me that there is a shortage on the X1 platform boxes and have no ETA when it will be available again. I was disappointed that I can not get the package but why would comcast rollout this when there would be a shortage. Hope anyone can help find any other details on this?
I received mine in Metro Detroit with no problem back in mid September.
It has some nice features that I like a lot. But it also is very quirky and buggy. Currently I have not had a TV program record in the past two days. It seems there is at least 2 or 3 issues (small to major fail) a week.
One thing I have learned in my almost 65 years is there is NO promised land. Everything has it's good points and bad. I have no desire up here in Vermont to crawl up and clear snow off a dish every other day during the winter. Not to mention all the fades due to heavy snow. BTW, winter up here is 9 months long with 3 months of lousy skiing.
