This may be the wrong place as I don't care if it's an external drive physically attached to my box or if Comcast will provide a bigger cloud! Can I rent additional DVR space for my X1 box from Comcast. firstname.lastname@example.org When it is suggested to buy more DVR (X1s?) boxes does that literally mean another (or more) X1 boxes in the house? Do they daisy chain? How does the interface work? I don't care if it's in the cloud or on mars. 500 gigs just isn't enough. Will Comcast rent me more? I LOVE my X1 system as it is. I travel extensivly and it allows me to watch all my programs on the road---until there is no more space! So I repeat---HOW can I get more space,time, gigs, or whatever more program recording time is called!
Replying to RickGr4:: Exactly what do you mean when you say "rent additional X1 DVRs". Do they all mesh so that when I access my account on line there is more room for shows so I could have more recordings without filling up my space (or quota or limit??)
Question for RickGr4 That is the least of my problems. I live alone, don't have to worry about anyone else. So I just call up Comcast & say I want another x1box? They come & plug it in & I have more space? Is it in parallel on the coax to 1 (the same)TV? Or does it T off to a 2nd TV? Does the menu bring everything up as available. Can I just set by the 1st box & join with a short coax? What is the physical configuration of the boxes in the house? I thought all the recording was in the cloud, not on each box. Are you saying the x1box actually has a hard drive that I access when I am on the road?
For RickGr4 THANK YOU so much for your timely & thorough response. I started out thimking I was going to be "butting my head against a wall". That I would just be told NO, can't do that! I will also use your suggestion to go to a comcast store. It makes sense. On another subject concerning Comcast. If one has an idea that would fit Comcasts business plan in a unique & lucrative way, that would be fairly simple to impliment, and yet be a feature that would be way above & ahead of the competition, who & or how would one approach the company. I am refering to a real and professional dialog.
