Ok, I rag on Comcast a lot because they’re expensive, I don’t complain here but ask Ronda. She likes her shows, I like mine, but we both love them in HD. So when I heard that they had a new service called X1 I looked into it and ordered it when it became available.
They came out today and installed it and the difference between old cable and new cable is unreal! Excellent interface, record 4 shows at once and watch from any room. Apps for Pandora (and others) which are neither here nor there since the TV has even more Apps built in but it’s nice and easy to use. The On Demand interface blows the old one away, the picture offered from X1 is better but this is likely the new HD DVR’s having better video hardware.
There is even a cool screen saver that kicks in if you have a program paused that shows news, weather and HD pictures until you hit play.
There are a few things I don’t like, On Demand programs if paused for too long start over and many don’t allow fast forward so we had to watch 3/4 of Falling Skies over again because of this, that’s ridiculous. Other than that, it’s awesome so I figured if anybody was on the fence, give it a try I think you’ll like it.
