ANSWERED: Side by side Xfinity X1 TV Box Comparison - DVR vs. Non-DVR

If you have multiple Xfinity X1 TV Boxes in your home, you most likely have a DVR and one or more non-DVR TV Boxes. This article lists the different model TV Boxes that you may have, including the XG1, XG2, XG3, XG4, RNG150N and XiD.



Notes:

  • While you may have these devices in your home, it does not necessarily mean they are currently available for installation.
  • The ability to pause and rewind live TV, recordings and Xfinity On Demand programs varies by TV Box.
