I'm tired of enduring these improperly tested updates that keep breaking other things. All the things added in the last year I already had for 7 years when I was on Dish. This system is not what is advertised. You can't watch any show anywhere because it can't upload your X1 DVR recordings to the cloud so if your show isn't on the Cloud DVR you're out of luck. And to make things worse, you can't watch your cloud recordings on a TV. You can't throw, cast or sling them without it telling you you have to watch it on a portable device. So much for the anywhere part. The anytime part is also a lie. Shows that get automatically erased even though they're supposed to be saved for a year don't always show up the next day and when they do they sometimes aren't even in HD. There's no log to even tell you why, when you get home to watch a recording, it isn't there.
The latest update has messed up being able to resume a recording. No matter where I stop watching a show when I go to resume the next morning it's been reset to the beginning.
For a couple of weeks the Guide was broken and every time I input a channel number it would say it couldn't find it even if it was on the same screen. That was finally fixed last week.
You took away the option to switch back to the normal controls. I used to be able to easily turn on CC simply by pressing the down arrow and then OK. Now if I've paused the video and restarted, the highlight is stuck on pause so I have to first check if I scroll over to the 3 dots to turn on CC or just press OK. Why did you have to take away the normal controls, I don't need huge icons, I need consistency.
One problem no one seems to be able to fix is why my DVR records a program and then immediately erases it even though it's set to save for 1 year. These boxes are DEFECTIVE!
