Hi, I googled all I could and could not find a solution to my problem. The Netflix app on my X1 DVR used to work fine, but now, whenever I try to play something, it works for about 45 seconds, and then says "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title." There is also what appears to be an error code in the corner, it says "(5.2.12). I tried different movies and TV shows and I unplugged my TV box for about 12 hours and plugged it back in and it still won't work. It's really frustrating me because it's the only way I can get Netflix at the moment on my analog HDTV. Please help.
The Netflix APP uses the STB's Internal Network Connection to the Internet..... have you checked your Internet Connection and possibly troubleshot this?

I tried unplugging the router and coax cablew and that did nothing. I don't know how I would do the other stuff on that list since the DVR is obviously not a computer, and the Internet seems to be working fine otherwise. Again, the movies or shows play just fine for about 45 seconds, and then the error reappears. It's quite frustrating.
We can narrow this down by having you check your signal levels on the DVR. Press and hold EXIT on the remote for 2-3 seconds and then press the down arrow twice and then the number 2. Navigate to System and then DOCSIS. Post your Upstream, Downstream and SNR readings from that page here for us to see and comment on.
I have been having the same problem. Everything was working fine and now on only some shows get the same message.
For example, I can watch a full episode of Daredevil perfectly and then try to play an episode of the Office and get the error afer 45-60 seconds.
Interestingly none of my little satalite boxes are having this issue. I can even swap the little box with the main box and the problem continues with the main box only.
My Internet works just fine, no problems playing anything on my PC's or tablets it just this box.
Called and spoke with both Comcast support and Netflix support and followed all thier recomendations with no changes. We did everything we can thing of, logged out and back in, restarted/rebooted, unplugged etc... and no improvement.
All the diagnostice test say there are no issues and we have a good connection.
Because one box plugged into the same cable works and the other does not it must be some issue with the box, right? But it worked like 4 days ago just fine, so my thought is a software update that caused the problem. And yes my last call the comcat support guy verified I was on the latest version.
You shouldn't need to replace your box. If you have a DVR, hold the power button down for 15 seconds and then release. X1 will reboot.
If you have the newer x1 DVR or an X1 HD box only, unplug the power cord for 10 seconds and plug back in. Or if you have the xfinity my account app simply go to trouble shooting>find your box name> reset it
Your x1 has a modem inside of it. It probably just needs to be refreshed (like restarting a PC computer to freshen up RAM memory)
