I've had x1 for 30 days. I'm on the second box, the first one stopped booting. This one has several bugs. The power light when dimmed often comes up full even when set to dim. And setting it again works. The box stops accepting any commands for many seconds - some times 20 or more. About one or twice a day the box is stuck. Yesterday, it was on a channel but would not change channel or accept any commands. The day before it was playing a dvr recording with the time out of sync such that we could not get past the middle of the program. Other times, other strange things happen. The only fix has been to pull the power plug and let it reboot. The box seem sluggish the most in the evenings, is there some contention with other users? To me there appears to be a lot of software reliability problems. There are also issues where the operation could be improved on but the reliability is more important to fix. Is there a new software release coming soon. I'm new to Comcast and I'm considering whether to switch to another DVR or just go to a plain set top box. I have confirmed I have the latest software. Or at least the box says so.
