I have escalated your issue to the Comcast Team available to these forums. Check back often for a reply in this thread or via Private Message from a Comcast Official Employee.

Hi profjay2, can you please tell me what color the light is that is blinking? Do you see any of your other equipment with the same flashing light?

The xg1v4 only has one rectangular light! The blinking stopped after I reset the box.

Correct 1 rectangular white light that blinks at times. A reset will stop the blink BUT the question remains what is the cause of the blinking? Also may TPTB Comcast send us all a link to an owners manual that will cover all these things. Now if Arris has not made a owners manual then they need to get on it ASAP...

 

Otherwise if Wile E. Coyote gets ahold of this new 4K UHD HDR ballyhoo boo moo shing ding dagnabit blinking box he might just...well just scroll down to see...

 

IMHO...  TY... YW... BLHA BLAH... TA DAH.. LOL

Re: xg1v4 blinking

The cable-box was more than likely receiving a down-loaded update. After getting it, it asked to be restarted to finish installing and re-configuring their update.

 

Very similar to what happens on your computer after receiving updates.

 

Unplugging the box while the light was flashing could screw up the current update. But the update would more than likely take place again at the next time set up for updating.

Comcast has never offered formal "owners manuals" for X1 boxes. On a couple of occasions a Google search has provided a link for Pace boxes but those links always seem to disappear quickly.

Can you press the triangle on the remote and do a system refresh?

Why did the light on the front of my set-top box begin blinking today?

for devices with no clock display Comcast has stated it means the device is receiving updates (like an activity LED).

My light was blinking also, just started this AM.

Have done system reset, sytem refreash, unplugged the power, didn't help.

Just turned the light off in options and see if it's still doing in after the dailey reset tomorrow morning.

Doesn't effect service, just very annoying.

A blinking light means it is doing an update.  For instance, an addition was made to Comcast Labs.
