Re: 4K box

I just finished hooking up and mounting my 2nd new 4k box to a new TV on the wall. Thanks for the help getting the box. System seemed a little confused at first having 2 main 4k DVR boxes but all is well now.
I switched back to the older voice remote as I find it easier.
I also received a new style HDMI cable. It is quite different from all past HDMI cables but I had a new one I bought but nice to see a better quality HDMI cable supplied with the 4k boxes now.
Thanks again.

I have two 4K DVR's, one standard DVR, and three X1 Companions.  My Plan inclujdes one DVR.  Each additional DVR (4K and regular) are charged $19.90 each and each Companion is charged $9.95 .

 

Notice only one DVR is included in your Plan.

My experience is the opposite...the store told me they have none in stock but will ship me one in 2 weeks which is not bad for a newer piece of hardware that probably has high demand.

Re: 4K box

Good evening Ella!

 

I was hoping to get one of the X1 DVRs (Arris XG1v4). Also looking to get two of the associated receivers intended for bedrooms, which I believe is the Arris Xi6. Goal is to have access to all channels in my plan available to view in the bedrooms, as well as view media recorded on the living room DVR. I think Arris Xi6 is the right model.

 

I understand I need to have private messaging enabled in order to request one from you. I appreciate any help you can provide!

Re: 4K box

@medinajulio09 - Thank you for posting! Your PM feature is already enabled. The Xi6 boxes are not yet available via Self Install Kit (SIK) but I can definitely ship you a 4K DVR and Xi3 boxes.

Re: 4K box

I would like to replace an XiD box with a 4K box.  I have several questions:

1.  Can I order an Xi6 box with a tech install (since self install is not available)?

2.  Can the Xi6 be remote from XB6 Gaetway?  I want to locate it on a different floor from the Gateway.  I have strong wifi at the location via a hardwired acess point.  Will that work.

3.  If the Xi6 won't work can I get another 4K DVR to directly replace the XiD?  I don't want to do this if it will increase my monthly bill.  I would want to do direct swap with no montly bill increase.

Want to add a 4K outlet if possible Xi6 or 4K DVR without cost impact

Thanks

Re: 4K box

Hello, @jnlilley!

 

1. At this time, the Xi6 device cannot be requested by the customer in general. We are working diligently to make Xi6 wireless TV Boxes available via Self-Install Kit in the near future.

2. Yes, you can move the Xi6 box it maintains a wireless connection to the Wireless Gateway. Please note, however, that the distance from your Gateway, along with other factors in your home (e.g., metal ducts, brick walls, double-pane windows, etc.) will affect the video quality.

3. Yes, you can replace the XiD with XG1v4 but it will cost more and will be considered as a DVR additional outlet. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: 4K box

adding... does your access point provide 5gb band wifi? the throughput of the connection has to be pretty high. have ethernet available to link the xi6 to the gateway?
