I appreciate the feedback and observations that all are making. It is helping me to come to grips with using the new platform. However when we still have to use words like "might not' or "most of the time" to report factual observations, the platform has BUGS, which in my view diminishes or removes features previously available!! That's all I'm saying or trying to resolve by questioning!! Mine will stay on until further notice!! I may or may not try the power save feature. Because of your reporting, I'm opting towards no at this time!! Thanks and PEACE!! @gotpizza wrote: @J_Lane501 wrote: Everyone seems to be making definite assumptions about how this x1 unit will perform, while Amber, the Comcast rep is stating that there are STILL grey areas to them. The former HD/DVR's(Motorola etc.) had at least two modes. When plugged in, standby ready to record which it would do perfectly and full-on viewer interactive mode. There may have been a third one where it was full off/but powered if no recordings were scheduled. It appears this unit does NOT have that standy-ready to record mode and has to be full on to do ANYTHING!! While this may be somehow a NEW more effiecient technologically advanced way to perform these operations, I do not see it just yet but will accept the reality that the unit must be FULL powered on to do ANYTHING!! I am stating fact. There is standby mode on the x1 box. it is just called something else now( power save). The issue with the power save mode is there has been many customers having issues with it not resuming/remote wont work when this mode is used. I have not heard of something not recording during power save mode, but if you have to unplug it cause it would not resume than something might not record! I am not here to go against what Amber is saying, but I can only speak of what I see and members on the forum see!
