Xre-00021 error. PLEASE HELP!!!

I have been fighting with this all day. Customer chat didnt help and neither did calling. I keep getting a tuning error on my x1 box when trying to tune in to most channels. I do get a handful of channels but most are gone. It will pop up a tuning error message of xre 00021 occasionally. Resetting it doesnt work and sending a refresh signal doesnt work either. Any ideas?

You have both upstream upstream and downstream signal issues and noise/ingress issues. For improved signal remove any unnecessary splitters, you shouldn't have more than a 2 way splitter ( you only have an HD box and modem with signal issues on both)

It's an activation error. You need to call the X1 help line.

It was the splitter. After a little housekeeping behind the entertainment center and tightening of all connections we are working flawlessly again. Thank you for the heads up.
