X1 Technical Issues

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service

The error code is rdk-03032, we are having trouble connecting to the X1 platform. This may be temporary. Is this is what you are referring to by code word?

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service


Ok here is the deal.

Your modem specs are very suspect. The X1 numbers you posted are well within spec but they only tell about half of the X1 signal picture. The only person that can see ALL of the critical X1 signal numbers is a tech that is on site. No Comcast employee can see all of your X1 signal levels from a remote location.

The X1 diagnostic menu also indicates codeword errors just like your modem. You haven't found that screen yet.

That doesn't change my original opinion. You have defective signal coming in to your house. Comcast needs to send a "line crew" out to your neighborhood to troubleshoot the problem.

Like I said earlier... RDK-03032 means your X1 box has a very poor or no connection to the Comcast servers.... You could have issues both inside and outside of your house...

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service

Ok, sounds good. As of now the linesman have replaced my drop, tap, undergorund cables, and all new cables going into the house. I guess i need a network team out here now. Once again, do you remember though what was the final thing comcast did for you that finally resolved your error codes?

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service


Comcast didn't have X1 back in 2004 so the error codes do not apply.

I am not sure you are understanding what I am trying to say. RDK-03032 means that particular X1 box has a very poor connection (or no connection) to the Comcast network.

If you unplug and reboot that particular X1 box and still get RDK-03032, either the signal to that box is horrible or there is a small chance the box is defective.

Either way, I think you need to get another tech out to your house.

Re: X1 Box: Should I output at 720p or 1080p?


@rubietuesdayt wrote:

I am not sure how true that is, because yesterday I tried reducing my output to 480i resolution and it absolutely butchered the picture. The 720p and 1080p look much better. So even if these SD channels are broadcasting at 480, the picture is indeed improved when I switch my output to 720 or 1080.


We found that to be true also.

I PM'd Comcast about closing the Updates thread and Andrew re-opened it.

 

Yesterday I had 4 orphaned recordings for many hours. There was a mix of deletion methods. They all showed in 'recently deleted' even though they were still showing in the recordings list. I tried to restore The View to see if I could delete it again and actually make it go away and got  inane error message about 'trying to restore your recording blah blah blah'...really? I waited a minute and went back to the orphaned  The View  recording and deleted it again and it actually worked. I have almost become OCD over trying to delete recordings. Have almost 100 in the list and DO NOT want to see those already watched....when I delete I want them GONE. What is so difficult about fixing this?

the error codes in the 100s of thousands on my old pace v1 are zero on the new arris DVRs I have now. Only thing that changed was changing out the pace v1 DVRs to the arris DVRs.

Re: X1 Technical Issues

In reading the Updates thread I see someone just discovering the ghost delete bug, and I'm wondering if there's a list of known bugs on any of the threads?  (Not enhancement/upgrades/UI improvements/cloud implementations/connectivity issues, just plain old system wide behavioral bugs.)

 

What I'm still seeing:

- Ghost delete

Deleting from DVR not synching to cloud (possibly part of ghost delete)

- Play next episode (as of last week, haven't tried this week)

- When paused, pressing forward does not always initiate slow motion, sometimes goes to fast forward.

- When paused, need to press play twice to get going on play again (doubly annoying if you press arrow up to dismiss the icons from the screen, as now resuming play results in 4 button presses). 

- I'm also occasionally getting behavior where I enter a 3 digit channel number while in the guide, and it tunes to the channel instead of moving to that channel in the guide.  (Any one else seen that?)

 

(The old bug where rewinding too close to the beginning of the buffer caused jumping back to live has been fixed for me for a while.)

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service

Interesting...I have the pace rng150 now

Gold Problem Solver

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service


The RNG-150 is the "mutt" of X1 cable boxes. They were out of date when Comcast introduced them three years ago. You want to swap that box for an XG2. I am not saying that will solve your problems (I still think you have signal issues that will require another tech visit) but I would swap out the RNG-150.

Yes I told you earlier that you probably have an issue that will require a line crew to fix.

Suggest you contact your local cable commission and file a complaint. If I understand the process properly, legally Comcast must respond to that.

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service

How many X1 cable boxes do you have? How are your boxes wired from the main coax coming into your house? How is your cable modem wired into the main coax. How many splitters/amps do you have connecting it all?  Are you getting the rdk-03032 error on just one box or all that you have?

Re: Xfinity X1 tv service


Good point here.

X1 requires a very specific type of RF amp (signal booster). Do you know what you have? Can you take a picture of it?

Yes you are correct. The first splitter comes directly from the drop as I have both Internet and tv service. So essentially I have two splitters connected to the x1 box and modem

Ideally, you would want an amp connected to your main coax, then it feeds each of your 3 devices (2 cable boxes and 1 modem).

That's not a mess but very common set up when you have a modem and a cable box in the same room and very easy to figure out how it's configured. Unfortunately, there isn't anything in the signal levels of his modem and the very limited levels posted in the pictures that sticks out, the OP will just have to continue working with the local team.

No, if you can't get connected an amp isn't going to help. Signal levels aren't the problem. The amp is really meant for 4 or more devices. 

 

You have a tech appointment on 3/25 ( later today), they'll have to troubleshoot it. Nothing can be done remotely.

Re: X1 Technical Issues

Yes Terri, The old ghost delete is alive and well. I would have hoped the programmers would have been embarrassed into fixing this problem long before now but it seems they are beyond embarrassment.

 

A interesting wrinkle that I noticed with orphaned supposedly  deleted programs is that if you attempt to play them using the "OK" button you get a "DVR service unavailable Message". However if you press the "Play" button then after a second or two they play !

 

This indicates a true programming glitch and is indicative of the sloppy, slovenly, careless, shiftless, thoughtless, brainless, and generally crummy approach to X1 the developers have used since X1's inception.

 

I hope their ears are burning.

 

1. X1 programmers get a bucket.

2. Find a comfortable chair and sit down with the bucket between your knees.

3. Bend over and put your head in the bucket.

4. Let the sap run out.

Upgrading to X1 has been my worst Comcast experience.  Box stops working every 20 minutes, have to remove power supply and wait 5 mintues for it to reload, then I get TV for another 20 minutes and repeat.  Slave boxes are usless while it down also.  Comcast has been to my house twice now, again tomorrow, very dis-satisfied and frustrated.

Re: X1 Technical Issues

I have had the X1 box for little over a year now. About a week after we got it and to this very day, I wish I could downgrade to the older box. It constantly lags, stutters, becomes unresponsive to the point where we are restarting it 2 - 3 times a day. If it wasnt for the contract we are under, I would just give this thing back, keep the internet service and get TV service elsewhere.

The real problem is that Comcast designed a system that requires every connection and signal to be as close to perfect as possible for the system to work reliably.  The problem was and still is that this is not allowing for the real world infrastructure of the cable system. The old boxes worked almost all the time because the "Cloud" and constant communications was not required to make the box work because all the software routines required were on the box already when it was finally fully booted up.

 

We customers have been waiting a couple of years to have X1 fulfill the promises made in Comcast's X1 commercials. However, we are still plagued with poor spotty service even if we get all our signals and connections fixed.

 

It seems to me that the truth of the matter must be that the software used to develop X1 has some serious flaws in reliability and the design paradigm is also flawed. If you can't fix the system after two years, it is time to admit you made a mistake and reboot the whole X1 idea with a new approach. X1 is a flat tire on my TV viewing car. For anyone keeping score between the pre X1 system and X1, the old system wins hands down for reliability.  It had buffer recording and was functionally just better all round. Comcast just keeps adding fluff without fixing the underlying problems we have all complained about for two years.

 

X1 is the Edsel of  TV systems.

I am having similar problem with box in bedroom. I have had nothing but headaches since upgrading to X1 DVR in living room and companion box in bedroom. Bedroom box stopped working after tech was here on Sunday. He did something and Comcast telling me the signal is strong between the boxes when the check. Next step is to switch out to a sepearate box that doesn't communicate with DVR. I was told to go by a Comcast location and pick up a box, problem is they all close by 5 p.m. or 6 p.m.  Tech coming again on Saturday morning - third week in a row I've had to have someone come out. Really sorry I upgraded even though I really like the system when it works, which hasn't been very often. I've only had it a month.
