Xi6 Box Ethernet port
This question was started here https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/X1/Xi5-amp-Xi6-boxes-Are-the-ethernet-ports-usable/td-p/3173725 but a definitive answer was never published.
Similar situation - I have an Xi6 box connected via Ethernet and my XB6 is in bridge mode.
The Xi6 *WILL* successfully setup and configure itself and I *CAN* watch live TV. However, it seems roughly once a day when I turn on the TV and box, I get greeted with an XRE-10007 error. Clicking on the "Try again" will cause it to succeed in pulling one of the tuners form the X1 DVR elsewhere in the house.
My setup is:
XB6 in bridge mode connected to a Ubiquiti ER-4. I have two Ubiquiti Wi-fi access points, one directly connected. The other is at the opposite corner of the house. There's a pair of MoCA adapters in the mix that allow me to extend the home network's Ethernet to opposite corners of the house.
What appears to be semi-working is the Xi6 will connect via Ethernet (never tried WiFi) and then take advantage of its nearest MoCA adapter to reach the X1 DVR. However, after the Xi6 is idle for about a day, it will seemingly drop the connection and give the XRE-10007 error.
Anyone have this type of configuration working? Xi6 connected via WiFi or Ethernet with their gateway in bridge mode? I know it is not officially supported, but there doesn't seem to be a TECHNICAL reason for it to not work. Especially since the Xi6 is the same box used for the Flex service and we can also use the Xfinity stream app to watch our cable channels without pulling a dedicated tuner off the X1 DVR. Seems more like a restriction due to the potential for varrying home network configurations than anything technical.
