X1 and Directv

X1 and Directv

My family was offered a deal to increase our Internet Speed from 25 mbps to 150 mbps. As part of this deal they sent us an X1 box. We are struggling to understand how to get the X1 to work with the Directv. I've read forums and it looks like this is not as easy as it first appeared. Help!

The X1 box doesn't work with DirectTV.  If you can't follow the installation instructions that came with the X1 box, it sounds like you need help with the installation.

You would need a separate live cable coming from the Comcast demarc, it will have nothing to do with directv boxes or cables.
