Thx for the quick reply.

Any idea why Comcast disables it? It would make a lot of sense to enable it, make customers happy, etc.

“Future use”, they also license the boxes for use around the world. Use Xfi pods or a Wi-Fi extender to get an internet signal to your tv, that’s what they’re made for. X1 boxes have been around for over a decade, if they were going to use that port it would’ve been a long time ago
