Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home network

Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home network

Just started happening this evening. I'm on my home network, but all of my devices (two androids, ipad and laptop) are showing "Out of home".

 

I'm in Charlottesville, VA. Is there an outage that I should be aware of? Not seeing anything on the Comcast site.

Same thing is happening on my iPad since last night.

App worked fine about an hour ago, charged it, now I'm getting the same thing.

X1 TV app for iPad showing "out of home" even though it shows my wireless network as hooked up

in the lower left corner of my iPad screen.  This has been going on for the last two days. HItting the reset button does nothing.

Tried reloading the app, but no success.  Wanted to watch the ALCS while my wife watches the Voice on the main TV.

It's just not happening.  Very annoying.  Hope the bugs can be taken care of shortly.

Can someone explain why no one in support knows about this issue?

 

I called and it went like this:

 

TV Support transfers me to Internet support.  Internet support says TV support has to help me and says they are going to transfer me back but hangs up on me.  Call back to TV support who transfers me to Internet support.  After nearly 45 minutes and multiple gateway resets internet support transfers me to wireless gateway support.  After nearly 20 minutes there they say they are going to transfer me to X1 support and I am, again, hung up on.

 

In the background, the whole time (over an hour and 15 minutes) I was chatting with a rep who eventually gave up and said she opened a ticket for escalation.  I then found this thread.

 

If this is an ongoing issue for multiple customers how does no one seem to know about it?

I had the exact experience pursuing it today...she finally wrote up a ticket and said she couldn't help and another technician will call tomorrow...they all keep saying bulletins haven't hit their desk about it.

Same issue on my Ipad. Started 10-13. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling.  Tried rebooting modem.  Tried rebooting Ipad.  Tried "changing household account" within the app.  Tried calling customer service.  Nothing helped.

On phone now...they are clueless...they think there is a problem with the app.

Mine is now working again.  May be connected to new functionality being rolled out in San Francisco Bay Area and other cities allowing DVR-recorded programs to be downloaded or played back outside the home network via cloud.  Google it.  Not sure if that's it but app is working for now.

Just checked and mine is now working. I still find it ridiculous how clueless they were at customer service -- spent at least 2 hours in the last 2 days on hold.

Finally spoke to someone with a clue. He didn't know why it was a problem but he said a patch should be coming out on the 27th to fix most of the problems with this. It seems that they're aware of it at least, even if they haven't confirmed it publicly.

Not currently. Of course, it stopped working suddenly before, so there's no guarantee. Smiley Sad

Try connecting to another network and then reconnect to your home network. Or try turning WiFi off and wifi back on.

I tried this to no avail. Are there any other possible resolutions?

Re: Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home n

Try Settings > Change Household > Change Household Account

Then login again

That always works on my Android devices

 

In my experience, this bug seems to be a flaw in account authentication/device registration not connectivity to home router as the error message would lead you to believe.  I have this issue every few days on both my phone and tablet (never simultaneously).  When one device has the issue, the other will work on the same SSID when tested.  Using the Change Household workaround, the problematic app will work again.

   I think i found the reason why you are gettign the out of home network, i checked your account i dont see a cable modem registered.  The in-home check looks for the cable modems IP address.  You will need to contact customer service (800-XFINITY) so they can add the cable modem back to the account.  You are able to surf the web over WiFi, correct?

Re: Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home n

I have the same issue with both mu ophone and ipad. Worked last week then stopped with the message "out of home".  Rebooted everything, reloaded the apps, changes ssids, still the same. Any suggestions? I did see mention of not have an associated modem on the account; what is the best way to validate that without having to talk to the support team?

I'm having the problem now on all of my devices. They all worked before. Could it have anything to do with access points?

Once again, Comcast is having this issue.  It really is quite amazing that a company of this size could have this many issues with a major advertised feature of their service AND NOT KNOW IT.  Once again calls to CS yield the round and round of no one that knows how to handle it or who to route a ticket to.  True insanity.  Yet more proof why Comcast is rated dead last for customer service year after year after year.

@ComcastChad  The problem is back again.. I didn't post because I figured like last time, it would magically go away after several days, but guess what, not going away.  Can you have someone look in to this again?

Argh.. Now the Out of Home message is gone, but no matter what I do, I get an error, on all my devices.  On my Android device the error is "The server is reporting an unrecoverable error.  Please try playing another channel or recording."  On my PC the error is "We've run in to a problem while streaming (Error 100.500-stream)"

 

I've tried different shows and channels, rebooting the X1 DVR, rebooting the router, all to no avail!

I have been getting the out of home network message even though I am connected to my home network. Sooo frustrating. Tried everything, turning wifi on and off reinstalling, resetting all devices and modems....please help.

I hate to tell you this, but there is probably nothing you can do but wait.  Each and every time I've had this issue it was a problem on Comcast's end and it took several days or a week for them to figure it out and fix it.  Right now I still can't stream (it's been 4 days).  They fixed the out of home problem and created another error so streaming doesn't work.  Apparently they are aware of the issue, but haven't been able to fix it yet.

Just tested X1 TV app on my iPad, works just fine.  Tried it on my android phone and got the 'out of home' network message.

WUHHH??!!!  I don't get it!  Not much to do that I can think of.

I suggest prayer.  It is certainly more effective than waiting for Comcast to figure out what's going on.

Re: Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home n

Same problem here. On my home network. However I did rename my wireless SSID, but I had not ever tried this with the default SSID. The Android Xfinity TV app gets the Out of Home message consistently. Based on the feedback in this forum, I doubt it is my SSID rename issue. Don't see any answers here either. Lots of customer frustration. Comcast, you are a hot mess. Next time it's Direct TV, there stuff works!

I had this problem after I got a new router.

 

In settings, in the app go into Change Household.

 

That should "unconnect" and reconnect your app.  That at least worked for me.

But my recordings don't show up

I did the reset a few days ago and it worked.  Just tried X1 app again on my LG phone today and I got the out of home message.

Did the reset and it didn't work.  The reason was that for some reason my phone connected to the 'xfinitywifi' signal from my modem instead of my in-home wifi.  Once I changed the LG to my in-home wifi it works fine.

Having this issue as well on my iPad.

Notice my IP is "registered" in Vero Beach,FL, not Atlanta,GA like usual. Complete shot in the dark/guess, but could that impact things? Perhaps some of the detection is IP dependent?

Re: Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home n

I have never been able to connect to xfinity tv go on my tablet since it became available.  I can access it on my laptop and smart phone.  Customer service finally told me there was nothing they could do because my tablet is running windows 8.1 Rt.  There is no app acvailable for a windows based device, and cannot access throught the internet because it is Rt (not full version of windows).  Therefore Xfinity is false advertising that you can use any device in your home!!  No one can tell me what they are going to do about it.

I had this issue back in June. I used the online chat support and they had it fixed in about 10 minutes. Apparently, my account was changed somehow. It's happening again though as of yesterday. I haven't tried support yet, but I highly recommend the online chat. It's way better than trying to get someone on the phone.

I called yesterday, and they said it's a problem with the app, and they will have a new release on December 15 that should fix the problem.

Re: Xfinity X1 TV app is showing "Out of home" even though I'm on my home n

I did a chat with a rep today-- after waiting 30 minutes on the phone for them to try and figure it out-- hopeless. The rep on chat said right away "the Cloud service you need to use this app to watch your DVR is only available now in Houston and some cities in Califormia.  It may come to Seattle area in a month."  Took about 2 minutes. I second the recco to go the chat route and not call.

I'm having the same "Out of Network" issue on all devices. Re-booting, reinstalling doesnt resolve the issue. Can COMCAST please post a resolution or statement that explains what is happening? If its a patch, etc we just need to know. Over twenty people have taken the time to write the issue up here, please respect your customers Smiley Happy
