@ComcastMartin I have had this same issue for about a week with a purple screen. I’m not sure how to contact you. I could not find your email. Please advise on a solution and is this a problem on all the Flex boxes. If so I should be sent a new one.

I’ve been having the same problem for about a week. The apps works on other devices but not the dvr. I’ve spent a few hours now with tech support trying to fix it but nothing seems to work.

I had this issue as well.

SOLUTION: sign out then sign back in. Use the code on the TV and your laptop.

I am having this same problem. Also, my Amazon music gets stuck on a screen that just says Amazon music with a few moving bars below it.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to reach out to us here on the forums, @user_1419e8! HBO is one of my favorite channels so I'd be upset if I couldn't use the app. I'll stick with you here until we reach a resolution together. Please send a private message by clicking the Peer to Peer chat icon in the upper right corner of the page, click on the pen and paper icon, then enter “Xfinity Support” in the “To” section. Please include your name and address and I'll be happy to help.

Sign out of the HBO Max App on your X1 box.  Then, sign back in, enter the code on hbomax.com/tvsignin, and you should be good to go.  I had the same issue as you and this is the only thing that fixed the problem.

My problem is similar. HBO Max plays on the other devices, but not through the Xfinity app. The screen loads and I can navigate through it, but when I press play, it loops back to the same screen I just left.

My issue is the exact same as @SLight77 

HBO Max plays on the other devices, but not through the Xfinity app. The screen loads and I can navigate through it, but when I press play, it loops back to the same screen I just left.

I had an issue for the past few days.  HBO Max worked on my phone & thru Apple TV, but not thru X1 box.  While I was signed in & could see everything available, everything I selected to watch thru X1 box just took me back to the X1 App’s home screen.  Eventually, I got a error message to restart or exit HBO Max.  Selecting restart did nothing.

After both a restart and system refresh of the X1 box didn’t fix the issue, I simply signed out of the HBO Max App on my X1 box, then signed back in, entered the 6-digit code on www.hbomax.com/tvsignin with my phone, and HBO Max now works.

So, sign out, and then sign back in.  Hopefully, like me that solves your issue(s).
