How to get a Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box?

I've gone back and forth between the local xfinity store and online customer service and no one can find me a Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box.  Can you please help me get a Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box?

Comcast DOES NOT HAVE ANY Arris XG1 V4 boxes !  NONE !  If you call customer service for one they LIE and say they have  and will ship to your home and will send you any cable box they have but NOT want you need. To make matters worse, they charge $ 15.00 and send wrong cable box.  If you set up a service call to deliver  Arris XG1V4  box and install they show up with NO CABLE BOX and stare at you.  This has happened to me this week 6/21  .  When you call and go through HORRIBLE voice menu  they do not even know what model they have and a nice talking lady  from overseas will tell you anything to make you happy but will NOT send any cable box and is totally CLUELESS  about ANY Comcast products or service !

I have had it with Xfinity, I have been trying to get a Arris XG1 V4 box for 2 months now, nobody seems to have a clue what is going on whether its on chat, a xfinity dealer store or a xfinity corp store, I ask for one of these boxes but I keep getting a flex box. I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER FLEX BOX!!!!!!

Its to bad where I live there is not another option, I have had it!

I just got 2 FLEX boxes sent to me today, so frustrating!

Hello @Loaners and @userTHall, we greatly appreciate you taking the time to use this platform for support with getting set up with one of our 4K boxes. We do want to apologize for the issues you've had in the past with getting support on this! Our team here can help get a one of our Arris XG1v4 4K DVR boxes sent out to you no problem!

 

Due to a limited supply of XG1v4 TV Boxes, installs of these devices are limited to 4K requests for customers with a 4K TV only. So, if you do not currently have a 4K TV to use with this box, we would be unable to ship this box to you at this time. However, if you do have a 4K TV, we'd love to help make sure you get the right box sent out!

 

If you send us a private message with your full name using our peer-to-peer chat service, we'll be able to help out! Just hit the chat icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen, click "new message", type "Xfinity Support" and select that profile to send us a message directly.

Why is it everything with Xfinity it's difficult? I try to send a peer to peer message, but who is the person I am supposed to look up to send a message to?

Hello, I am also in need of a Arris XG1v4 4K DVR system. I just went to our local store and they had none in stock due to the shortage you referenced. I have a 4K TV and was so looking forward to watching the Olympics in 4k! I even upgraded my service for this reason. If you could help me get that box sent out that would be incredible!

Almost impossible to get  Arris XG1v4 K cable box. Best way is to ONLY talk to someone at Comcast in USA ONLY as most calls are routed to overseas where they talk nice but know NOTHING about any xfinity products  and will try to sign you up for more charges to your already OUTRAGEOUS cable bill !  After 1 month I finally spoke to a person at Comcast in USA who was knowledgeable ,pleasant and FINALLY had the Arris XG1v4 cable box delivered to my home . I believe shortages are a result of severe chip manufacturing crisis , Pandemic and COVID-19 shipping  problems from Asia. Good Luck !

I wish I knew how to get one! I’ve been told 3 separate times that they were Available through the live chat and customer service number but I keep getting old tv boxes or a flex box. All I want is an ARRIS XG1V4 4K BOX. It’s so annoying I have a 4K tv pay for premium channels and tons of others but I can’t even get a 4K box before football season. Probably going to switch because of this issue it’s so annoying.

Every time I live chat I get sent the wrong box! And keep having to pay for it. Every employee on the phone says that it’s in stock but won’t send it to me. I need you to guarantee me that it’s the right box! I’m getting tired of this. Why should I have to pay so much and you can’t even give me what I want!

I have the same issue. I returned my 4k box because it wasn't working. They gave me another box which wasn't even a DVR box. Then when I called they said they would send out a service person and waive the fee, of course you know I was billed the $70, and he left me with a very noisy DVR box.  I called for a replacement 4k box again and they sent me a non- DVR box, which I had to return to the store and again they billed me for the shipping, even though a note was on my account. Still no replacement 4K DVR box.

@user_10ff85 I appreciate you reaching out to our forum about the 4K DVR. I recently got a new 4K TV and it makes all the difference in the world! I definitely want to make sure you're able to view your content in the highest quality possible. I apologize for the difficulty you've had getting a new box and I'd like the opportunity to make things right. When we ship out equipment and our warehouse does not have the specific model in stock, they will ship out a similar box. I'm happy to check the nearest store's inventory to see if they have the 4K DVR in stock so we can get you the cable box you want.
