Re: Error xre-03121

I just signed up in March then take away the channel it is on 75% of the time. I love how my last message was removed because I mentioned another service that you can get cartoon Network with for cheaper than what it would cost through Comcast. They must be taking a bad hit with the cord cutters because why else would they do something like this???? It's to attempt to make up for lost revenue and it is very easy to see that. Terrible customer service and terrible ideas to milk the most out of customers.

Re: Error xre-03121

I have the XRE-03121 issue as well.. tried system refresh, I will try Button A and refresh. 

I was on the phone with Comacast for 40 minutes, I can not get any live channels yet the DVR and On Demand stuff works. Even Channels that are local (CBS, NBC) NOthing works.. 

 

How do I fix this? I have then newer 4K Box

I wanted to update.. Still not working, cycle box power several times, Sent signals, etc

tried everything through button A with no fix

 

Oddly enough my Xfinity Stream app on my phone and roku work for live TV. I have to wonder if it is a signal issue at the box or somehting in the box

Yes, several times, Also restarted the Gateway (you just never know), I restarted the box several times too. 

 

This AM I turned it on to see if it fixed itself and it was at the Welcome to X1 screen. I have to wonder if there is an issue with the box itself. I cannot watch live TV on the box but the DVR and On Demand work, infact it recorded a show last night (I think it recorded correctly) 

 

After the error I was watching a DVR show and the box rebooted after about 4 mins. this is the XG1v4 box I just got a week ago, prior to the box change, I had no issues. only other changes to the account (but should be irrelavent) is my cellular phones switched to Xfinity Mobile..

I have never had this issue but it is probably an "entitiement" issue.  Try calling 1800comcast and ask them if they can refresh your entitlements.

Re: XRE 03121

Same problem here with TCM Turner Classic Movies never have been able to pull it in... I thought it wasn't part of my package even though it showed up on the free to me channel guide... first agent told me it isn't part of my triple play package.  Second time I called I asked specifically firstly if TCM was part of my subscription and it was confirmed that it was so she couldn't come up with that lame excuse of not being included in my subscription if she couldn't figure it out it out like the first agent did.  now waiting on a 60 minute refresh...

 

is it my imagination or has no one been able to resolve this issue?

 

i hate comcast...in addition to this, my reminders often dont work and/or keep getting altered...they block chromecast capabilities...hate them.

Low signal strength

I am getting an XRE-03121 error for one channel (CNBC)... and after several months, I discovered I could test my signal strength using the tool on the X1 research lab page.  When I did check the strength, I found that it is very low (one bar).  What do I need to do to improve my signal strength?  I've contacted support about the error code several months ago - restarted the system, did a system refresh, etc... all to no avail.  Any ideas?

do you have more than one set top box? have you tried pressing the "A" button and running the system refresh?

may want to call 800-Comcast and select TV. ask the agent to run the internal troubleshooting guide (einstein) and let it test your line.

Re: XRE-03121

Yes I am using this. Could it be a signal strength issue? Would improving the modem do anything or getting an WiFi extender get rid of the error?
New Poster

Re: Low signal strength

OK...so I finally had a Comcast technician come out to check the system. After about 45 minutes he determined that the low signal strength was caused by a bad connection at the cable where the DVR screws into the wall. He replaced the connector and voila...everything works great!

Error code XRE-03121

I’m getting error code XRE-03121 whenever I try to watch any HBO channel. I restarted my device multiple times without any luck. I am subscribed to HBO. I see this happened in November 2017 and it was a Comcast issue. Are they working to resolve this?

Re: Error code XRE-03121

I’ve tried all the suggestions here in this forum and still can’t access my HBO channels. Nothing has changed with my account and it still says I’m subscribed to HBO which I pay for each month so it wasn’t a promotional thing. I do NOT have a wireless box as others in this forum had issues with when getting this error code. When calling Comcast, no one seems familiar with this code either. Is there a Comcast tech reading this willing and able to help besides redirecting back to this forum? I will gladly PM if someone has the time to look into this for me. Thank you in advance.

call 800-Comcast, select billing, ask agent to perform a deep background account refresh. that can take up to an hour to complete. working now?

@redgin If you've made changes to your plan within the last 24 hours then you just need to have XFINITY perfom an account refresh. If not then try to reboot the main video gateway & the impacted device. -RespectedWisdom

call 800-Comcast and select billing. ask the agent to refresh your entitlements and to perform a deep background account refresh (can take up to an hour to complete). if they don't know what that means ask for a supervisor.
