The new Tivo boxes just came out today! So far the reviews are very promising and appaently Tivo put a worthy processor in this thing and its lightning fast (my one big gripe with the premiere). That said I just oredered one since Comcast really dropped the ball with the X1. I am sure it will get better over time, but software can only fix poor hardware so much. I would reccomend that you all check out the new Tivo Roamio boxes.

We got the X1 system a few weeks ago and so far I am very dissapointed with almost everything about it. I have been using Tivo for over 10 years and was hoping that Comcast had learned their lesson and made a truly nice box, but it is obvious this thing was rushed to market. The interface and design are ok, but the constant hang, lag, and need for rebooting is wearing thin with me. Then you add in the fact that the guide has no idea what a new episode is and you have a worthless DVR. I am giving it a try because my current Tivo is only a dual tuner and didnt want to spend the cash on a new Tivo box before new ones came out. I thought I would see if it works and for now at least that answer is no. A day does not go by without X1 issues. If anyone has suggestions to ease these issues I would love to hear, but obviously its just poor software. Please fix this box comcast, if not I am just gonna cancel the 300 plus dollars I spend with you a month. Its just not worth it to pay that much and see my service get downgraded with and supposed upgrade.
