Error ERR-65535 when trying to access on demand

We've had this problem for about a week now. At one point, unplugging and pluggin in the cable box seemed to work. But it no longer works.

We've called, and they "wrote up a ticket" after making us wait on hold, retrieve our cable account number and all the rest of the tiresome routine.

 

But they gave us no hint at what the problem was, and no hint at when it might be fixed.

 

Comcast is stone cold stealing our money right now.

So, it went away for a day. I was informed there was an update over the weekend and that it was fixed.

It was fixed for 12 hours.

Today, it's broken again

Err:65535

 

I think a refund is in order, don't you?

Same problem here....no on demand, same error code. Have been on the phone with customer service and got the same tired line, they send a reset that doesn't work, unplug the box, doesn't work either. Now they are sending a tech out to check things out. We have two boxes and neither one can access on demand. The rep on the phone said the code is a server error code but insist on sending someone to the house. Getting ready to drop comcast and put up a dish, paying for a service that I'm not getting doesn't set right with me either!

I already found that link, the box/DVR they are talking about in that post is not the same one that I have. The other problem with that post is it is several years old and doesn't address all the software and hardware upgrades performed over the years.The fix that is discussed does not work on my box and if you read the post from start to finish the fix is only a band aid and does not solve the real problem which is apparently a programming glitch on the server. This error has been popping up every once in a while since 2006, as shown in the post you refer too, but the operators at the call center or the service techs don't seem to be aware of it. To add insult to injury I just discovered that I was billed for a service call when the tech couldn't find the problem. Oh, and by the way, the error code and the problem magically went away the day I had the appointment.
