For the past few days my Android app and when trying on my PC was giving me the dreaded "Out of Home" error even when sitting in my home. Now the Out of Home message is gone, but no matter what I do, I get an error, on all my devices. On my Android device the error is "The server is reporting an unrecoverable error. Please try playing another channel or recording." On my PC the error is "We've run in to a problem while streaming (Error 100.500-stream)"
I've tried different shows and channels, rebooting the X1 DVR, rebooting the router, all to no avail!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Argh. The unreliability of the X1 streaming is making me nuts. This morning the symptoms have changed. Instead of the previous error messages after hitting play the system either goes right back to the grid listings or gives me the dreaded "Out of Home" message even though I'm sitting at home using the wifi on my comcast gateway.
After 10th failure trying to watch a movie on Starz Edge pay TV online with 8Mbps/3Mpbs internet speed verified by comcast's only speedtester, I gave up. It plays for a while, balks, rebuffers a few times then the dreaded error message Unable To Play Starz Edge pops up and won't reboot clicking retry, over and over and over.
Starz Edge - Useless.
YouTube free videos play on same system, same time but not simultaneously in HD at 1080p or 1440p perfectly
XFINITY NEEDS BANDWIDTH AND SERVERS TO SERVICE ITS PAYING MEMBERS.
No other excuses will do. The system is hosed.
