Flex box keeps returning to home screen

I have had xfinity flex since December 1st

for the past 2 weeks it has become impossible to watch any tv without the system returning to the home Screen. Everything is connected correctly- I have tried resetting the box, all connections are secure and internet works just fine. What is this issue with the flex boxes? I see others are also having this issue.

I am having literally the same issue. Watching anything on the flex will result in the box rebooting itself every 10 - 15 mins. Obviously untenable to watch anything with this box.

Hi xfinity, I'm having the same problem. My flex box will stream a show or live tv just fine for ten-fifteen minutes, then it will go blank for five seconds, before returning to the home screen. Can you please help? This happens with Peacock, ESPN, Paramount+, Netflix, everything I've tried.
