Multiple X1 4K DVRs

Hi... I found this forum https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/X1/Multiple-4K-DVRs-in-one-house/td-p/3248257

 

and I was also told that I cannot have multiple 4K dvrs. But I would like to have one.. not just for extra capacity but I have other 4K TVs and I use my own networking equipment. 

@ComcastAmira can you help?

I’ve escalated it up for you. It may depend on the market you’re in but you should be able to have whatever you want to pay for

the reg HD boxes borrow a tuner from XG2s if available (each has 3 to loan out) or from the DVR (has 6). swap out one of the non-xg2 companion HD boxes for a 4k DVR at your local office and see if they do the swap ($10 more per month and you get another 60 hours added to your cloud DVR).

Re: Multiple X1 4K DVRs

Sorry I forgot one of the boxes is one of those boxes that has extra tuners. So I believe I have a total of 12

I have two 4k DVRS, 1 XG2, and one XG1 DVR.  


adding.. no extra charge but gives you another tuner 'back' to your DVR. change one of your regular X1 HD boxes for another XG2. that way all your tuners remain available all the time to the DVR to watch (one) and record 5 or record 6 channels at the same time. no change in rental price.
