RE: Thanks for your explanation

Hi Rod,

"If the X1 is like the Cox Contour box, then it has DVR capabilities built in, but it only works if you pay the $10/month DVR charge."

I don't know -which- X1 box jedrider has either but our X1 box can record up to six shows simultaneously while we are watching another show. It also needs to be powered ON in order to stream its content to our X1 non-DVR cable boxes in our bedrooms.

"I don't know what blasted box you want to turn off. Our Cox box has a setting to either leave it on all the time or it times out after a couple hours if you don't do anything."

The Xfinity/Comcast X1 box takes quite a while to bootup and connect to their servers. There's a sleep mode but I wouldn't recommend shutting it down completely. We just leave ours ON 24/7 and switch the TV ON/OFF.

Xfinity/Comcast also applies updates to the box which requires a reboot. They reboot every night but the user can set the reboot time. Ours is set for 4:00 a.m.

Powering up. This may take a few weeks..
