I was just talking to an XFinity Rep on Facebook about this exact issue. Not only did it add all the new 1000+ channel numbers, it also duplicated all my normal favorites and doubled the listing. No warning or anything and if I delete the new 1000+ channel number it also deletes the original channel number. I tried SyFy as a test and sure enough, both vanished from my favorite list. Please let us turn off the new 1000+ channels as I don't need to have them enabled at all.
And while you are at it, STOP with the daily update every single night. I work till 2am or 3am on some nights and watch TV before bed. Every night that stupid box pops up to restart my DVR for an update. There should only ever be an update message when there is an actual update to apply.
Also, the EAS (Emergency Broadcast Interuption) is another extremely annoying thing especially when it runs twice, or 3 times with in 30 minutes. Not only does it screw up recordings at times it screws up the entire DVR and won't reconnect to Live TV, forcing you to manually power off the unit, wait 5-10 minutes for it to come back up.
