Seems unlikely Roku beta will ever come out of beta at this point. Serious issues with the app, on all Roku devices i have. Crashes, forces device restart. No issues with any other mainstream apps, but xfinity, one of the largest natioanl providers, can't get it right? Seems like a deliberate choice to try to let it die.
Really a shame I already have Roku/Roku TV's and family loves the expierience. It would be great to have xfinity in any room with decent wifi, but app crashes after just a few minutes. The iOS and Android apps work great. May have to add android TV box/sticks which is totally stupid. Roku is one of the most recognized streaming setttop platforms.

Sorry that's geek46 that's really not the point. For a geek (refering to myself here) that's a no-brainer. Problem is xfinity really has put together a nice expirience, and the new x11 is in many ways a superior design to that found in most iniversals, it's easy to the point, the motion triggered back light, and voice integreation are great and I am not aware of any of the universal supporting bluetooth pairing to the newer x1 boxes. Not to mention if you have kids the xfinity remote is quite solid and readily replaceable whereas the nicer universals tend to be ~$70 and up and fairly prone to damage.
The real bummer is they xfinity gets all that right and than falls short on what should be little more than a menu option and duplicating the codes which are loaded for the AV recievers (the existing, plus a mapping with the input function). I know I am not the only one, as there are a lot of other posts on these forums, reddit, AV and remote forums, etc.

Sorry to reply to an old post. Consider it a "bump". I am trying to find out if anyone has had any success finding a way to remap the tv input function. I Actually like the new x11 remotes, and the wife and kids are liking it too. Only problem is with the new box I had 1 more HDMI box than my TV has inputs for so I figured good excuse for a nice little reciever. I reran the setup and and now the remote will control the volume/mute/power of the reciever, but the TV input still controls the TV. This seems to be a flaw in the remote programming. I am quite frustrated at this, and am stuck go with a real universal, but loose the nice feel, and voice control, or return the reciever and use lower quality connections, etc. Ideally it would be nice to be able to remap the input button. I know you could do the older remotes, but havent found much on it with the x11. Either way kind of disappointing Comcast isn't pushing an update on this. It really seems to be a flaw in an otherwise pretty nice little clicker.
