Any idea on a timeline for this feature to be released to the Denver metro area? It seems like this is slowly rolling out from east to west and it hasn't even made it to IL yet. Is there any chance of it being available in my area by the end of 2013? I'm not sure if ComcastTeds is still around to ask this, but hopefully someone can chime in... Thanks!

The X1 was recently introduced in my area and I'm wondering if it would be worth upgrading to. I'm reading a bunch of threads here with many different complaints and I just wanted to ask a few specific questions that could be deal-breakers depending on the answers. It sounds like there are constant updates so hopefully I can get the most current info. Does the remote (either R1 or R2) have an input or tv/video button? In other words, do I need a second remote to change inputs on the TV? Does the remote handle sound for a separate audio system? Can you lock it so the volume buttons only control the audio system? I think I read that the R2 remote does, so how do I guarantee that I get an R2 remote? What other buttons do I have on my current Comcast remote that are missing? How bad is the lag between remote input and the box responding? It sounds like it could truly be seconds? Is it consistent? How much storage is available on the DVR? My area still doesn't have the expandable HD option available, but theoretically it will be out soon so I could just wait for that. Are there different versions of the X1 boxes out there? How do I know if I get a old one or a new one? Should I request something specific? What other deal-breakers are out there that I can't think of? Thanks for your help!
