When you press the xfinity button, a circle with lines in it appears as the leftmost item (icon) in the on-screen menu.  At least once a month for the past year or so, a blue dot appears on that icon. To me, that dot indicates that I should select the icon and see some type of message.  When I select it, I get a message saying" No New Notifications ... You're all caught up"  Below that message is a link to the notifications section of settings.  It doesn't seem to have any impact on service.  It doesn't seem to be tied to any software updates.  I haven't changed notification preferences for years.  It is just a weird indicator.

 

Does anyone else get this?  Does anyone know why it appears?

I get the same thing, and have never had a message, always "all caught up"...

Thanks che, had someone come out and switched my x1 dvr to the new 4k box and it seemed to clear up the problem. Seems pixelation is closely related to a dvr going bad.

I recorded Wimbeldon today.
It says its a 9 hour recording.
I can’t acces the last 2 hours.
I fast forward and it kicks me out of the recording.
I tried 30 second skipping through the end, still kicks me out.
Any way to access those last 2 hours that recorded but can’t access due to not working correctly?

did you try the cloud DVR to see if it works? did you try starting the video (from beginning) and using voice remote to "fast forward 7 hours"?

Doesn’t matter anymore. Google search spoiled it for me. Found out who won.

Nice to know auto extend still doesn’t work in 2018 though. 👏🏼

did you set a timed recording or record a guide item? the auto extend doesn't work with timed manual recordings.

Tennis isn’t a sport that gets auto extended. You can go into your scheduled recordings and add 90 minutes to to the 9 hours already set.

Considering Tennis matches have no set duration, it should auto extend every day.
