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

Yes I tried everything on that website. I see that the serial number and MAC address on my router is listed as the same on the website. I saw you told others that could be there issue, how do you fix that?

  Can you try power cycling your modem and try connectign again?  Unplug power for 30 seconds and replug back in.

I started facing this problem on my brand new X1 router and just couldn't figure out why. For me, the reason turned out to be the fact that I was on the company VPN. Once I disconnected the VPN, it said I was at home...

 

Hope this helps someone facing a similar problem.

How did you disconnect from the VPN?

Xfinity TV stopped working in the middle of watching live TV tonight. Keep getting Out of Home message on all of my devices and the website. Tried all the steps and restarted the modem and router but still get the Out of Home message.

Mine had been working fine up until tonight as well - getting the "out of home" message.

Same for me as well.  My X1 cloud service had been working flawlessly for the past month, now have been stuck with the "Out of Home" message for the past few days.  I've rebooted my modem, tried on different browsers, and tried on different computers and Android devices.  All give "Out of Home".

 

I would be curious to know in which markets people are having issues or is it all over the place.  I am in the Nashville market.

  All, sorry for the inconvenience, but there seems to be an national issue impacting users.  Our engineers have engaged the appropriate teams and are working on a fix.

I hope there will be a "national refund" to all affected customers.

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

If possible, would like to know why tech support needs to escalate my case for a known issue to network engineers to troubleshoot an issue where my Xfinity Anyroom DVR and Internet are working perfectly, yet my access to Xfinity TV does not work.  

 

Steps taken with tech support via chat:

 

Forget mobile wifi network for home network

Turn off mobile Data

Reboot Phone

Reconnect wifi

Launch Xfinity TV

 

I use a non-Xfinity cable modem, that is not connected to my Anywhere DVR box via Ethernet.

 

Per described steps for troubleshooting, please let me know what technical issue is.  Would like to know how Comcast knows what my home Wifi network is, and why it's not recognizing it now for privacy, etc reasons.

I'm in the San Francisco East Bay Area and this issue of out of home network started for me tonight.  I didn't use it Thursday, it  worked fine Wednesday.  Well as fine as it ever does being it locks up and kicks me out all the time and always has.  

New Poster

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

Same thing happening to me in SF Bay Area. Anything worked for anyone?  I have spent over three hours on phone and online chat with Comcast over last two days (about other issues) and now this. I am so frustrated with them I am about to cancel my service.

@Chad, if this is a national issue, would it be possible to:

- update the help page: https://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/xfinity-apps/xfinity-tv-app-unable-to-connect/

- add a banner on the web page: https://xtv.comcast.net

- display an outage notification on the customer portal: https://customer.xfinity.com/MyServices

 

with this information so your customers don't spend hours troubleshooting it themselves (like I did) or hours on the phone with tech support (like others have), only to find it's a network issue? Could you make this information available to the normal support channels? It seems crazy that I have to dredge through a forum post that is 9 months old to find out the solution to a national, network, comcast-wide problem!

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

Went through the same steps as xfinity22202 late Wednesday evening to no results so I then got on with chat support. Chat support thought it would be a good idea to reset my modem remotely in the middle of our discussion. So, I never got any sort of definitive answer from them since that knocked me off chat when it happened. They mentioned potentially needing to "report this to Tier 2 support" but I couldn't complete their steps before they rebooted the modem on me. 

Regardless, same story as everyone else; I first noticed it Wednesday afternoon. Have even reduced "my home network" down to connecting my computer directly to my Comcast provided modem via ethernet and it still thinks I'm not on my own network. I'm in the Sacramento, CA area for those curious. Combining my experience here in NorCal with the reports I've seen in this thread and others, it really does appear to be a national issue.

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

I just asked, via chat, if Comcast would be issuing a credit for the downtime. The "analyst" said it's considered a "free service"!

 

That's pretty funny considering they promote it in their advertising.

Problem Solver

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

nsevs, I totally agree with your post about some kind of notification should be posted so customers do not waste time searching for a solution that just won't happen on their end.  Even the CSR's are clueless about this issue and they end up wasting a customers time.  I don't think Comcast likes to admit problems officially though because customers might be more willing to ask for refunds for down time (just my theory).

 

Also, please edit your original message and fix the links you included.  They all contain an extra ")" in them that causes the link to break when clicked.

Me too!  Very frustrating as Comcast customer support is clueless

  The teams have identified the issue and services should be restored throughtout the day.   It may take several hours for the ip addresses of the impacted users to be refreshed.

What if you have XFinity TV but not their Internet service? How do you get it to work. I have had NO LUCK since we switched over. PLEASE HELP!

Problem Solver

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

Since you do not have Xfinity Internet service, you will always see "Out of Home" because to the Comcast server, your web page response is going to a non Comcast ip address.

Out of home just started back up for me last night on my home wifi... had been working for about 2 months since last problem.  How do i fix this?  Last time it just seemed to spontaneously resolve.

I bet you have a galaxy tab s.  I am now having the same problem.  It started last night also and if you delete it, you can not reinstall because the google play store is saying the tablet is not compatible.

It's ridiculous how much hand waving Comcast does on something they obviously have an issue with.  Why not just say "fill the tires with air and see if it fixes the problem"?  Everyone points their finger at the other guy and says "try them". 

 

Just tell us that this program is beta quality and we're the QA department so there's some honesty.

I applaud the comment - and repeat my hope that comcast xfinity - whatever you want to call it to disguise inept software - is not an option and obsolete by 2018!  What will happen to all the offshore employees (contractors) they have?  oh well - Upper management has golden parachutes - like lotto winners they will be made whole - good luck with that - your product DOESN'T WORK YET YOU CHARGE FOR IT!!

Thank you for the reply - I look forward to a fix to what you are advertising on local tv that is available - it is frustrating that your local advertisements show this is an available feature we are paying for but cannot get or get any credits for not receiving the servcie we pay for

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

I am currently experiencing this same issue once again. I've tested on an android tablet and through the website on a PC with Google's chrome browser. The website provided a diagnostics report. It reads: "Your device is currently not in-home..." etc. On the other hand next to 'Status' it says "in-home".

Here's some more info:
Error code - 900.primetime.3329.12007
Error description - Out of home.

I am located in the central New Jersey area.

I am also having this issue.  On both wifi devices in my home as well as my desktop which is a wired ethernet connection.  Anyone have any possible fixes for this issue?

 

I am in Western Pennsylvania if that matters at all.
