Thanks again Rustyben.
I currently need 4 additional. I have the main DVR with 3 small boxes attached and they set up the 4th with it's own DVR box (same as the one with drop out problems). I don't need the DVR on the 4th plus it's costing me $19.95 mo additional. Sounds like there are new options where I can drop the 2nd DVR and save some money.
Armed with your suggestions I'll go into the Xfinity store tomorrow and see if I can get properly upgraded and solve my drop out problem.
Sorry to have bombarded you with questions. You've been a great help!! Thanks so much!
no problem. including itself each xg2 supports 4 total TVs. when you install XG2 unplug the XiDs first then swap in the xg2 and let it boot up completely. then on first startup plug in each Xid one at a time letting them come completly up and letting the XiDs connect to the Xg2. to test to go the xg1v4 dvr and using the remote select 6 programs in progress (last one be sure to tune to that channel and hit record. if all 6 are shown recording you are successful.

I've had Nomorobo on my Xfinity voice service for well over a year IIRC. Looks like the scammers have figured out an effective workaround to the blocking service. I have received over 2 dozen robocalls in the last 48 hours, and have reported all of them using Nomorobo's online reporting form. The value of the service is rapidly diminishing. The most effective solution may be to cancel my voice service all together.
We are noticing the same results and reporting on a regular basis. The robocallers must be getting
more high tech these days? Nomorobo worked great for a couple of years.

General complaint and rant: I've been a Comcast/Xfinity customer for over 18 years, and I have to say it's the service provider that by FAR requires the most oversight and involvement my part to deliver advertised performance and quality of service. I am on the phone I believe every other month about a service issue, and welcoming a tech to my house quarterly. And to the best of my knowledge, none of these issues have been resolved with the replacement of, or correction to, any of my customer-supplied equipment or infrastucture . NONE. ZERO. Each performance issue requires significant time and energy on my part to start the debugging process and then collaborate with telephone support personnel to fulfill their debugging process, then move on to entertaining a tech visit so that they can determine the problemn exists in the Comcast distribution system, or head end, or whatever. I am currently experiencing slow internet download speeds (upload speed, video, and voice are fine), and will welcome another tech visit tomorrow. I had to identify there was an issue in download speed, run a couple of modem resets, continually verify download speed status, spend 50 minutes on the phone with tech support, yada, yada, yada. I have been told I am at the perimeter of a network node service area and that contributesd to my ongoing issues. What will Comcast agree to do to deliver acceptable performance to ALL customers in a network node? What will it take for Comcast to assume responsibility for customer quality? I am NOT a Comcast quality control auditor, but I certainly feel like I am being treated as one.
