X1 Box cannot pause or rewind live tv, screensaver no longer shows traffic, news or weather feed
Posting to find out if other customers are having the same problem (yes a tech has been out. We believe it is a bug in configuration).
When watching live tv and hit pause, one of 4 things happens:
a. Nothing at all
b. No pause but a blue circle with a slash through it and message that set top box does not support feature
c. one out of 20 times will actually pause but then jump straight back to "live"
d. Same as C only no audio will play until I hit "exit" button although it was never paused to begin with.
When trying to rewind the surprise options are:
a. Nothing at all
b. Jumps immediately to Live tv going FORWARD (note, this is like hitting the lottery because it means the pause actually worked)
c. No response at all and blue circle with slash through it saying set top box does not support
This has happened within the last 3 days. Was normal prior to this.
As of yesterday, the screen saver ceased showing the usual data for local construction updates, weather forecasts that was quite useful actually. Now just current temperature and time. Was this a Comcast Labs thing that went away?
Anyone else experiencing this? My box is on release version 91.0.3 dated 10/09/2018. The firmware was manually updated yesterday by Comcast to see if there was corruption of some sort, but nothing changed.
I am not planning to swap boxes until there is a totally new box design plus I have a lot of unwatched shows on the hard drive and cloud, more than the extremely limited 60 hours that Comcast will retain when you change (what is up with that, btw? It's not truly cloud storage if you can't move to a different device and still see the same thing. That 60 hours also appears to be why the Xfinity Stream apps never ever match what is actually showing on your Cloud DVR menu, just a random assortment of one show from this series, 3 from another not in any consecutive order)
