on demand works fine but no channels available on X1

We had comcast TV and internest sevrvice years ago....no X1. After signing up for a new package and receiving my new box in the mail, I get on demand fine as well as the channel guide. My internet works fine.

Everytime we try to tune to a live tv channel we get error message XRE-00021there was a problem tuning to thus channel please tune to another channel.

 

Chatted with online help and reset the box and several other things......no change

 

My sone tells me I need a "filter" placed on my outside line sice I never had X1 before.    Any help?

That's an error code for a tuning error. Your dvr is way out of spec. Can you give a little detail on how your cable is ran, splitters, amps, etc

 

Unrelated to X1, your modem is out of spec too

You've got 2 devices, so there's a splitter somewhere. The X1 box signal levels are the same. If it's 100% going directly from outside to the box, you've got a drop problem and/or an outside maintenance issue. You'll need a tech out, I've escalated to a colleague that can get one scheduled if you wish

Sounds good, glad you were able to get a visit scheduled.  If you don't mind I would like to follow up with you  after the technician visit.

 

Thank you

Re: on demand works fine but no channels available on X1

Hi mako,  thank you for the update via private message and glad to hear the technician was able to isolate the issue down to a filter and upon removal your channels were restored.  If you have any questions or concerns in the future please feel free to reach out here.

 

Thank you
