Re: XG1v4 Box Request

Other than the ability to show Netflix and Olympics in 4k, are there any other benefits to this box over the standard DVR HD DVR box? Not sure I can justify paying an additional $10/month for just the Olympics (EVERY other device can do Netflix!)

Re: Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box Availability

I chatted with an agent yesterday because I received a non-DVR box instead of a DVR box to replace my current defective DVR box (XG1v1). He suggested I go with a new 4k box, but was told they had to be ordered as they are not available in-store - so I would have to pay a $15 shipping fee. Is there a way to bypass the shipping fee since I am replacing a DVR unit that freezes often and it wasn't available at my local store?

In my case, I just called the Comcast support number and asked to have one shipped to my house. I received it the following day. I then replaced my previous DVR and took it back to the local Comcast store to have it taken off my account.

Xfinity 4k receiver

How can I swap my x1 receivers for 4k capable receivers?
Contributor

Re: Xfinity 4k receiver

I thought this thread was in reference to technical questions related to the Xfinity XG1v4 DVR, NOT how to obtain one.  Everyone needs to read through this thread and stop asking the same question over and over. 

 

Again, for folks that are wanting one of these 4k DVR's a simple search through this thread or a phone call or chat with Comcast will give you the info you are looking for.  I obtained mine through a chat session and received it within 3 days of the order.

Re: Xfinity 4k receiver

Hi Enqiquezl -- Yes, you can swap your current X1 boxes for 4K capable boxes. Please keep in mind that at this time we are only offering 4K DVR units. If you would like to do this then please send me a PM with your name, full service address, and either phone number or account number for authentication. I will also need to know now many boxes you're needing to swap.

I would like to receive the self install kit.

Will I have to return my existing DVR box?

Will my other mini boxes be able to broadcast 4K or just this DVR box?

Re: Xfinity XG1v4 TV Box

Why does the new XG1v4 not have an optical audio out? I have found in the past when feeding the HDMI through a home stereo receiver that is a 7.1 surround unit that there can be an audio lag. I have been able to bypass that by sending the video directly to the HDTV via the HDMI and then send the audio directly to the 7.1 receiver via the optical audio. I'm concerned that going back to routing the HDMI through the receiver I will again experience audio/video lag. Thanks for your detailed reply.

TosLink is a deprecated technology and restricts audio from newer codecs. Audio is now carried by the HDMI cable. the audio/video lipsync is adjustable and usually needs to be set when you attach a new device to the TV's HDMI input port. the TV actually moves the video forward/back to let you match lipsync. Use the TV's remote and audio menu for adjustment.

I run my BD player and my X1 DVR through my Onkyo receiver and output goes to my 1080p TV.  But ALL my connections are HDMI.  I have not experienced a lag.  There was a lag issue 2-3 years ago but it has mostly disappeared here; there are some who still say they have it.

X1 4k box

I installed the new X1 4k box and replaced the regular X1 box. The sound immediately deteriorated and got much lower. I have a Samsung 4k TV with Samsung 3.1 soundbar connected via optical cable to the Samsung Hub. Volume is good with Amazon Prime Video, YouTube or any other internet based video. The Comcast / Xfinity feeds need to be turned way up to hear. Is this a box issue that Comcast is having?

Does the Xfinity XG1v4 TV Box include a DVR?  If so, how do I get one.  I already have a Sony 4k TV and the Netflix UHD account.
