XG1v4 requires reboot everyday...
After a recent move, we upgraded from our old X1 box to the new 4K "XG1v4-A" box to work with our Samsung 4K UHD television.
We immediately realized that our box was requiring a reboot every day. So, we've been unplugging the box and plugging it back in. I've contact Xfinity about this issue several times. No one over the phone has been able to help.
Xfinity tech support simply had me swap out my box for a new one (which they have to send via FedEx -- requiring me to drop off the old box to the Xfinity store). This is the third box and I still have the same issue.
So, Xfinity sent out a tech yesterday. We were also having some internet connectivity problems (intermittent loss of internet on all of our devices). He discovered that the splice was installed by the Xfinity installation guy incorrectly (or so he said).
However, the tech was puzzled. He said that everything should be working. He then attempted to say that our "problem" was our television.
I explained that we have swapped to another TV that worked perfectly fine (trading my sister-in-law's for a few days). Our television worked perfectly fine at her house with Xfinity and her TV worked fine at our house using the same box and same HDMI cable.
I explained to the tech that this didn't happen with the old X1 box. It doesn't happen with anything else connected to the TV (e.g., Xbox One, Blu-ray, etc.). I've even swapped HDMI cords, switched HDMI inputs, etc. Each and every time, the problem is only with the new XG1v4 box.
The tech then said that he thinks that the cable issue that he "fixed" might solve the issue. He left roughly 25 minutes after arriving and said that he would have someone follow-up with me in a couple of days.
Today, I turned everything on again....and have the same problem.
My TV is a Samsung 4K UHD television.
My power save mode is OFF.
My HDMI cable is 2.0 compatible (and I've tried FIVE of them -- all with the same issue).
My TV's firmware is up-to-date.
Apparently, this is a known issue. There are quite a few threads on the Xfinity forums with many posters addressing this issue. For instance:
Doe anyone have a resolution?
