I recently in the last month exchanged my Motorola DVR's for the XG1 units thinking this would be an upgrade and I could save some money with one less DVR. To my dismay I also discovered the X1 DVR's don't record the buffered portion of a live show. Most shows that I would use this great feature (that was available in the past) for are not ON DEMAND shows. Have you ever had to fast foward an "On Demand" show to get past the part you don't want to see -- 2X max is alittle limiting of your time.
I could have the TV on a channel and go in and out of the room doing other things like grilling out and if something of interest came on I could just hit record and play the whole show back later.
Comcast has to remember that they have been advertizing that "Google Fiber" is coming to town( Atlanta ) --but oh they don't have the CLOUD features. Well MAYBE we don't all need the "cloud features" so it might be bye bye Comcast.
