I am also new to the X1 platform. I switched from Dish after 15 years where I had( 2) Hopper's and (3) Joey's. The only function the joey could not perform was split screen PIP which required multiple tuners at a single location. I now have (1) X1 Hub, and (3) companion boxes. I had no idea when I signed up that the companion boxes did not have the same functions and features as the hub. I asked comcast if I could add an additional X1 box to my system. I am willing to pay the difference. I was told that in my market (Seattle), this is not possible. So,if I lived on the east cost I could have multiple X1's........ Is this actually true?
