I would rather have cable coming out of the wall than a satellite dish on my house/in my yard. The Xi5 is being rolled out on a limited basis, just like they do with everything else at first. Give it time. They just launched in Huntsville, AL and a bunch of other markets.

adding... you could use a qualified Roku product that is currently in beta and has no charges per month while in beta to give you a wireless connection.

Considering the ethernet port on all previous X1 boxes have been disabled, I think it is safe to say that the answer to both of your questions is most likely no.

no on POE (powered by the USB-c connector). The post #1 in this thread does not state in the text that the box can use the ethernet connector, but in the caption of the back side picture of the xi5 it states that the box can get video from either wifi or ethernet. we will know more as the boxes get more customers responding in this forum.

Do you have any idea when this will become avaliable to the northeast division (Freedom)?


ComcastJessie wrote:

The Xi5 is a new wireless X1 TV box that will allow XFINITY X1 customers to watch live TV without the need for a coaxial cable connection.

 

 

Here are some FAQ's

 

Can the Wireless TV box be my only TV box?

At this time, the Wireless TV box is intended for use as a secondary X1 device in your home, in conjunction with a primary X1 TV box. You must have a primary X1 TV box plugged in and connected to a coaxial cable jack in your home.

 

What are the requirements to have the Xi5 device?

To have a Wireless TV box in your home, you'll need XFINITY TV service, at least one additional X1 TV box to act as the primary X1 device on your account and XFINITY Internet with a Wireless Gateway 3 (with RDK-B firmware) to stream video over the Xi5's WiFi connection.

 

Can I move the Wireless TV box to a different location in the house?

Yes, you can move your Wireless TV box provided it maintains a wireless connection to the wireless gateway. Please note, however, that the distance from your gateway, along with other factors in your home (e.g., metal ducts, brick walls, double pane windows, etc.) will affect the video quality on the Wireless TV box.

 

Can I use the Wireless TV box outdoors?

Yes, you may take the Wireless TV box outdoors provided it maintains a wireless connection to the XFINITY Gateway. Please note, the Wireless TV box is not weatherproof and you should avoid direct exposure to precipitation and extreme heat or cold.

 

Can I hide the Wireless TV box out of site?

Yes, the Wireless TV box can be placed anywhere it can maintain a wireless connection to your wireless gateway, like in a cabinet or behind a TV. The voice remote that comes with the Wireless TV box does not require line-of-site to the box.

 

What should I do if my video freezes or pixilates?

First, try rebooting the Wireless TV box. If the condition does not improve, try moving the Wireless TV box and your wireless gateway closer together. If you need additional support, please Contact Us.

 

Can I connect the Wireless TV box to my WiFi range extender?

We recommend connecting the Wireless TV box directly to your wireless gateway for the best viewing experience. We cannot guarantee that the Wireless TV box will work properly over WiFi range extenders.

 

How many Wireless TV boxes can I have in my home at one time?

At this time, the maximum is two Wireless TV boxes per account.

 

Can I use my own modem?

No, the Wireless TV box can only be used with your XFINITY wireless gateway.

 

Are there charges or fees associated with the Wireless TV box?

Yes, standard equipment and additional outlet service fees apply to the Wireless TV box.

 

Does the Wireless TV box support 4K/Ultra HD resolution?

No, the Wireless TV box does not support 4K/Ultra HD resolution at this time.

 

Can I use X1 apps on the Wireless TV box?

Yes, all X1 apps available on other X1 TV boxes will be available with the Wireless TV box.

 

 

Note:

  • The Xi5 is only available in select markets at this time
  • Aside from the WiFi connection, the Xi5 will have the same functionality as the Xi3 and XiD devices.

 


Device Specifications:

Manufacturer: Pace
Model Number: Pace PX051AEI Xi5
Device Type: HDTV Cable Box
Device Dimensions: 4.23 in W x 4.23 in D x 0.63 in H

 

Xi5 FrontXi5 FrontXi5 RearXi5 Rear

 

 If you have any questions or need any assistance with your Xi5 device, please don't hesitate to let us know. 

 

Any updates we have about the Xi5 device will be posted here.

 

 

**UPDATE 03/17/2017**

 

The Xi5 is only available to customers in limited areas within the following markets at this time:

 

  • Greater Boston, MA
  • Blue Springs, MO
  • Salt Lake City, UT

No, those devices use Moca to communicate.

MoCA is communication over coax. the new gateway will bridge the data delivered to it via coax (from a local DVR or XG2) to Wifi which the Xi5 will then receive.

I don't have any roku products right now, but I'm interested in getting whichever product would essentially emulate the Comcast product mentioned in this thread (Xi5) for wireless TV viewing. I'm interested in full access to my xfinity subscription, not just certain content.

First of all, why do you think you need wireless and do you understand what wireless does and does not mean? The term "wireless" is used very loosely in the audio/video industry.

The Xfinty/Roku app requires a Roku enabled device. At this point, I find it to be useless and comical. Navigating it is impossibly slow. Changing channels is tedious. The picture quality is not great and the audio is only stereo.

wireless... without wires.. meaning I can put a TV outside on my patio and watch TV without having to run a wire to a cable box and then to the TV. I'm assuming the roku streaming stick will suffice to try out this functionality?

You did not mention the Roku stick...

It will work... if you have AC power close to where the TV will be located and your WiFi signal reaching that location is very good.

That being said the Xfinity app on Roku is really really poor... Navigating it is horrible. Simple channel changes take numerous button presses.

datasheet I read clearly said ethernet or wireless connection (using the modem's moca bridge to ethernet).

adding see first post on thread http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/X1/Xi5-TV-Box/td-p/2860100 and note under the rear view of the Xi5 it says ethernet or wireless. wouldn't make sense to not allow same data to follow the ethernet that the gateway is already bridging. test in lab?

I had a lead technician do some work a month or so ago, and say these were going to be in my area on July 7th (Minneapolis, 55443).  Stopped in to my local Xfinity store on the 7th and they had no idea what was going on with them.

 

Would it be better to call and try to get new boxes over the phone vs going into the store?  Or does anyone have any idea on these and XG4 DVR box availability?

Are you sure that you want one? Early reports from the field suggest that the Xi5 is not working well.

I just did a job today for a client in the Comcast Hayward,CA plant and the client had two Xi5 boxes. I didn't beleve the client at first but he indeed did. I used two of them, one on a new Sony Oled TV and a second one on a new Samsung 9000 series TV. The menu is the same as all other X1 boxes and I set them for 1080p and Dolby Digital 5.1. The picture didn't look and different from a hard wired XG2v2 box or the main X1 DVR.There where no options to enable HDR so I presume some On Demand content will show in the info about HD with HDR?

When will Comcast deliver 4K UHD boxes? Press release on 5/6/2015 said it would be by the end of 2015.

I don't pretend to know the underlying tech, but if Comcast doesn't supply 4k content, I don't see how a TV is going to get 4k unless it is upconverted.
