Unfortunately, you'll have to continue using your tv remote. TVs that need an OK press to choose an input will act just like yours, TVs that can change inputs without an OK press works just fine. Hisense just happens to need an OK push to change inputs.
Just found the problem... Tried bypassing the comcast installed coax splitter/amplifier that is mounted in the basement where the drop comes in from the street. Now the X1 box works fine. The amplifier was apparently the cause of the signal issues, not sure if it was fried in the thunderstorms or if the timing was just a coincidence. When the tech originally installed the amp he said it was because we had a weak signal, but it seems fine now using no amp.
Hello rmaxon317, I can get this issue corrected for you. Can you please send me a private message with your full address and account number by clicking my name (ComcastAmir) and then clicking "private message me"?
When in the guide section and a movie is highlighted, in the loiwer right corner there some emoji's displayed. A tomato, flower, popcorn or a garbage can. 2 at a time with a percent sign. What do they stand for?
The red tomato icon indicates the movie has scored a Fresh rating on the Tomatometer.
The splat icon indicates the movie has scored a Rotten rating on the Tomatometer.
The full popcorn bucket means the movie received 3.5 stars or higher by Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes users.
The tipped over popcorn bucket means the movie received less than 3.5 stars by Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes users.
MYSTERY! My xfinity box with a DVR was not plugged in to the coax last night. It STILL RECORDED the morning Sunday news shows. I am flabbergasted. Please solve this mystery for me.
Mystery solved-the X1 platform has cloud capability. Your sunday morning news shows are a cloud copy not a copy physically on the dvr's hard drive.
It about time we were allowed to hide all the channels that we don't have access to so we can just scroll through the ones we do have. It's a feature that's way overdue. The other thing I want is to pick and choose only the channels I want and NOT pay for those I do not watch.
last question first: I wish it was possible too and to be able to not have the sports fee would be great. on the first question you can mark the channels you watch as favorites and then change the guide default to 'favorites' and then 'point and hit the OK button for changing channels from your favorite list.
thanks rick - not sure how i do that - when i go to teh ann arbor comcast office- they only tell me its all they have
tell the counter clerk you want the advertised 6 tuner DVR. NOTE: if you need component video then you are stuck with that model DVR.
