I have just recieved a new x1 set top box, model MX011ANM, and it is having trouble while seting up. After choosing the language, it says “verifying your information” and then gives me an error: “lets try that again” “sorry, were having some trouble.” The error code is XRE-00294. I have tried restarting the set top box multiple times and it has not worked. All cable connections are secure. Also, the xfinity app shows the set top box as connected.

If resetting the box doesn’t do anything, call in and get to tier 2. It’s an activation error code, box is failing to authenticate your personal information

Re: XRE-00294

I have already contacted support and they said that I would get an email from the “higher level fix team.” Is that what you meant by tier two?
