Does this issue occur with any other browser?  Are you running the latest, production version of Chrome (not a beta version)?  Have you tried clearing your cached files?  Last resort, uninstall and reinstall Chrome (use 64bit version if your computer supports 64bit programs).

Re: xfinity tv crashing PC

thanks for the help, im using chrome 64 bit and everything was installed properly. Ive cleared the cached files and so far (20 minutes - about double the time it usually lasts) it seems to be working without crashing, going to give it some more use and will let you know if anything changes, if i dont reply again it means problem was solved, thanks !
