It's 2017 and the updates still coming everyday is there a way for these updates to happen monthly or weekly in 2013 there was no resolution to this issue four years later please tell me there's a way to stop this madness how is this a good service if you can't watch tv without it cutting off in the middle of a movie
I doubt Comcast will ever change the nightly update; my guess is that they do that to "reset" things that work in the background or somewhere in the network. If 20 million X1 users is in the ballpark, trying to keep the system working from coast to coast must take a lot of compromises.
User "John3758" is essentially correct. Currently there is not way to circumvent the update schedule for the X1 platform. If you have any more questions please feel free to reach back out. Thank you.
Well seeing as how probably 90% of the X1 boxes that are deployed by Comcast never get turned off they can't really update when the box is off.
Honestly why do you want to go back just for the box updates in the night? Sorry but X1 is where everything is going. If you are having other issues then post your issues so we can try to help you. Going back to the old boxes does not solve issues, it only postpones them until you're forced to upgrade again.
