RDK-03117

I have X1 with 3 TVs. One of the small set top boxes rarely works. It almost always says RDK-03117. Support’s “fix” is to send a reset which never works. Gas anyone had this issue or know how to fix it?

Swap locations of the smaller boxes and see if the error follows the box or not

Re: RDK-03117

I have the same issue constantly, but only have one box. I've tried restarting, swapping cables, even plugged the box into the Ethernet instead of using WiFi. Nothing works and customer support hasn't been able to help.
The only info I can find on the error message is this post. Why bother having specific error codes if they don't lead anywhere?
I'm about to get another streaming box that actually works and has more apps.

I am having the same issue and have not been able to watch TV for about 2 weeks now. I have 2 small boxes and it's doing the same thing on both. Then when the error code isn't showing up, I am not able to change channels so I'm stuck watching whatever channel is on at that time.

don't recognize the number. what model number is shown on the bottom of the set top boxes? what is the error message displayed with that error code? do you have X1 set top boxes  and Xfinity internet service?

Re: RDK-03117

I’m having the same problem. There is extreme pixilation at times on the one channel we can get making it unwatchable. I have found unplugging the box and waiting a bit to plug it back in allows us to change the channel but then we’re locked in to watching that channel until the pixelation starts again.
I’m figuring that it’s cuz it’s a wireless box it’s having trouble connecting to the house wifi but truly I don’t know. I do knn no ow that I want credit on my statement for an unusable connection!!

Re: RDK-03117

Yes. 7-8 calls later, a few chat sessions, several resets, and three shipments of the wrong boxes when I tell them I want the original boxes I had when I ordered the DIY. Tech came out and replaced them when he had to hook us up (there was never anything here but satellite - the tech had no reason to switch out the boxes in the first place) but same code a million times - and it doesn’t seem like I exaggerating either! How can they not know how to fix this if there’s a code and how can they not fix it when it’s the. ONLY code there is with ALL my errors. I applied for a job there, should have hired me because I wouldn’t have passed any customer up until they’re happy!!!!!

Re: RDK-03117

Had same issue. I contacted customer service, they reset my gateway and had me unplug the box with the issue for 30 seconds then plug back in. Worked after doing that.
