Xi6 or XG1v4?

I have an Xfinity Arris cable TV box that is not 4K.  My new TV is 4K.  Through the Xfinity chat line I asked for a box that would let me watch 4K.  I was sent an Xi6, which looks to be more for the Flex plan.  I cannot see how the Xi6 box can replace, or even piggyback, on to my existing 1080p cable TV box.  I can find nothing quickly on the Xfinity support website, or Youtube, that addresses this problem.  I'm guessing I really should get the Xg1v4 cable box to replace my existing box, and not the Xi6.  Unfortunately none of the 4K hardware is available in Comcast stores anymore.

I'd appreciate any advice or help.  Thanks in advance.

P.S. is there any way to transfer the DVR recordings on my old box to a new box?

@XfinityMartinB I did exactly as you said eight days ago - so far I have received nothing from you or anyone else, at least that I can find in Xfinity Support or my Xfinity email. 

Where is your or someone else's response to my direct message?

Where do I find your response to my private message? Good think I am not in a hurry.  I clicked on the Direct Message link on this webpage and all that is there is my original query.  Also, I do not understand why you don't answer to my preferred email, a Yahoo mail address, that is clearly listed in my profile.

We don't ee any direct messages. If you sent one to a specific employee we do not see those as that is not how our system works. Let's try again and we can get you a 4k DVR box. 

 

Make sure you are signed in.

1. In the top right corner, you'll see a little chat icon(direct message) near the bell icon. 2. Click the "New message" (pencil and paper) icon

2. Hit the compose button to the right of "conversations"

3. In the 'To' line, type "Xfinity Support" there. A drop-down list appears. Select "Xfinity Support" from that list (an "Xfinity Support" graphic replaces the "To:" line)

4. Type your message in the text area near the bottom of the window

5. Press Enter to send it. An official employee, such as myself or whoever is first available, will respond. Thanks!
