Hi Everyone,

 

Please see below for some of the X1 updates coming your way in July:

 

Pre-Orders And More

 

Please note that the features outlined in the blog posts are customer facing highlights from our releases and do not include bug fixes.

 

Enjoy!

Gwen


Hi Gwen,

Appreciate the updates, thanks.

 

Any news on when the DVR will gain full functionality?

At a minimum I'm referring to, real slow motion, frame by frame advance, the ability to record the buffer, and reasonably functional rewind (or reverse slo mo).

 

The first paragraph that the link Pre-Orders And More takes you to is -

"At Comcast, one of our main focuses is to continue to enhance the X1 experience for all viewers. "

 

I have to say that I find that hard to swallow when the number one update each time is something that allows customers an easier way to find content and therefore spend more money, and there are no fixes that get us back to basic 1980s DVR (or VCR) functionality...

Gate,

I remember the "live tile" feature being mentioned and it sounds very cool. However wouldn't each live tile eat up an X1 tuner?

Considering how hard Comcast is pushing Xi3, I have a feeling this feature has fallen off of the map...

When are we going to get the "Live Titles" feature for the Last 9 and Guide?

 

Also the other feature where you can see for example the score and inning right on the guide when highlighting a baseball game.

 

These 2 cool features were shown over a year ago at the cable show in 2014!

 

I really hope these enhancments are still planned for X1!






Well my guess would be that the Live title would use perhaps 1 tuner at a time.

I can see a lot of reasons for this feature being scrapped.. There's scenarios where no tuners are available, the user would wait, not see any video, and be upset that it's not working as advertised. In addition, even if there is an available tuner, the delay to tune the channel or performance implications of doing so could've been enough to make it not a good experience.

No results at this time. Try again later. 9:00 pm RMT.

 

If you are planning on trying to watch On Demand, forget it. The above message is about all you get for almost every type of on demand content. Once again Comcast has dropped the ball big time and shot themselves in the foot. The whole on demand structure is pretty much not there. For instance, an attempt to list all Streampix movies produced the above message.  Premium Channels only have a list of the Channels and no available content at all.  I know, "our Engineers are working on the problem."  Yeah, Right.

 

Time to fire up the old Blu-Ray player and watch "Seventh Son" or "Run all Night".

 

It really brings home how vulnerable we will all be when you can only purchase movies from the Cloud.

I was sound asleep by then so I couldn't watch a couple of OD shows I wanted to. Apparently Comcast has no redundant back up for OD.

 

 

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
and feather canyons everywhere, I've looked at the cloud that way.
But now it only blocks my show  , I tried again but it's no go.
So many things I would have done but the cloud got in my way.

I've looked the cloud from both sides now,
from up and down, and still somehow
it's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't trust the cloud at all.

Re: Upcoming X1 Updates

Wasn't Streampix discontinued? Or do they keep some of it around for customers who subscribed to it in the past. And what the heck time zone is RMT?

No, just the Streampix Mobile App was decommissioned several months ago

This is off topic but this is such an active thread I just had to post.


Here we go again.....they give us something and guess whats going on today?

 

No local channels and the lineup is a mess.Starts with channel 11 which is now shows as QVC but QVC is channel 6 where I live. Huge gaps in the guide and so many channels either missing or the labeling has changed. They 'say' there is an outage...REALLY? Doesn't smell like an outage. THere is a short thread about this but I don't know where the two people live who reported it. Comcast.net says outage that will be fixed by 2:20AM today. Its 8:40AM now. I called and recording says it will be fixed in 24 hours. OMG. I checked internet and there is nothing about it. I am so angry I could spit.

 

PLus still can't use forums with Firefox and its been a week.  I know they are working on it but this is just insane.

Re: Upcoming X1 Updates

part of life with cable is there will always be outages. thankfully they don't happen often and when they do they address them. comcast is clearly addressing it if you are reading on their website that the outage exists. if it isnt fixed yet, I would think the problem is larger than they originally expected. I am sure the outage will be resolved for you as soon as they possibly can!

To me an outage means there is no service which is very rare where I live. What I do not expect with an outage is a totally messed up guide and inability to tune to a channel using any normal  method. Only way I can get anywhere is to use the guide and access a channel that way. I have complete sports and hispanic layers but no premiums, local or many cable networks. Took me a while to get to something I could actually tolerate early in the morning. All I wanted was local news and CBS this Morning but NOPE. Finally found a HLN where it did not belong so at least I have 'input' to start my day.

I beg your pardon?  How rude! You don't think not being able to get channels is a tragedy.  I pay up the wazzoo to see ALL channels and to expect them to be there and where they belong unless there is a lineup change and this is not the case.

As you can see they know about the outage and they addressing it. Outage doesn't mean all off - that was years ago. If you can't watch TV right now do something else ... They will get it fixed.

Just having to use IE and the challenging job of finding threads  is wearing me out.  I did not opt to make IE my default browser so I  can't just use the links I get in email.

guru,

You bring up a good point but Andrew has been granted some sort of unofficial leeway in this area.

Like many things with Comcast and X1, it is what it is... LOL

Re: Upcoming X1 Updates

I have wonderful news on the x1 cloud dvr functionality!! in sacramento area, it now works!! it worked flawlessly for me today! I love this new feature. I happened to upgrade my service yesterday because my contract was nearly up and wanted to renegotiate a new contract. in doing so, the cloud features suddenly came to life. I don't know if the upgrade of the service kicked the cloud features in or they just happened to coincide with when the features went live in my area. doesn't really matter why but I am glad it works.

Alright, so I just got 1.55.02.

 

The only difference I can see is that the About screen is bold, and the tabs on Control Panel are slightly larger...

What are the cloud functions that have you so excited? What do you see and what can you do so that others can look for them?

Mainly being able to watch DVR recordings on my iPad when I am not home. That's just one of the many features x1 cloud DVR brings. Here is the FAQ, WHICH will give you all the info you might need:

Live TV on the iPad is the bomb!  I can sit in my screen porch and watch a baseball game on a hot night.
