Anyone thinking about Xfinity/Comcast? Don't

Just a suggestion to anyone thinking about making the switch to Xfinitiy;

Their new d.v.r. can finally hang w/ ATT's but is plagued w/ problems, multiple problems! I have a collegue that switched from Dish to Comcast (no uverse in his area) becuase his att d.s.l. was too painful and he is livid! He has over 12 hours on the phone before and after the install w/ comcast and the customer service as everyone knows is the worst ever! Thee worst! 

He does love the internet speed though as they are the best for that. But that's it. Aside from their extensive on demand, they are horrible and jumped the gun on their d.v.r. 

Even if everything was perfect, the customer service is a 1/10th of ATT! Don't do it! Just don't make the switch! You will regret it. 

Just sayin'.............

Sorry a little busy with life to report.

Yes, yes, and yes I can record 4 hd at once. 6 months ago it was 3hd/1sd now, 4hd. The uverse tech turned me onto it when I got my 2250 installed a while ago. I didn't believe it either. But the proof is in the puddin' Believe it!


Can we get a photo of your Ingress Profile (System resources) and/or the "Recordings" screen of 4HDs being recorded at once? 

 

It will give the rest of us hope.  Smiley Wink

Streams- 0SD/4HD

Egress- 0SD/3HD

DAMMIT! Perhaps I'm losing my mind. Sorry for the false hope. I swore when the tech showed me it was 4HD.

The Egress profile represents streams out of the DVR.  It determines the number and types of simultaneous streams that can be watched on the non-DVR STB's.  You want to look at your Ingress profile which represents streams into the DVR.  It determines the number and types of simultaneous streams that can be recorded on the DVR.

Yeah...that's the profile 95% of customers have right now.  Smiley Sad

 

Someone posted awhile back about having a higher profile and took this photo:

 

But it disappeared as quickly as it appeared.

 

We all got excited about that one....

Yes, I had that profile for about a month until an update rolled out.

Don't get too excited....you've got as much a chance of having that profile as winning the lottery!
