Having the exact problem, and contacted support, Alex in the Phillipines "A Good Agent" after about an hour of trying to resolve w/no good result has said he has elevated this for a call back. I have older equipment Scientific Atlanta Box which I Prefer to the newest XBox equipment. A comcast employee wrote about this issue in 2019 and claimed the VM-16 was a backend server w/metadata problem. Personally think that Xfinity is attempting to force those of us w/older systems to change. When equipment dies so goes my TV account. Their internet service has gotten very poor, and Alex did note that it was operating unusually slow. May I inquire what system/DVR box u are using when this issue occurs for you? I am a basic TV, land line, and internet account customer. Rural PA, they took our local office away right before they introduced the X1 Box. We all have to travel and hour out of our way to & back for office support. Thanks for sharing

what services and equipment are u using to utilize your xfinity account
i.e. is the x-1 system or is it the Cisco DVR or Atlantic DVR? Are u basic for TV or do u have an extended line up? Has your internet if u use thru xfinity gotten slower? do u rent xfinity's equipment for your internet use or supply your own?
