I am looking forward to upgrading to Comcast's new "X1" technology when it becomes available in my area, but only when it is ready for 'prime-time'. Like most new STBs, whomever the provider, there are bugs to be exterminated. According to comments in Comcast's X1 user forum, there are a ton of bugs in the software. One such post in the forum is a classic: (bolding mine) I prefer not to suffer the frustration of being a conscripted and unpaid beta tester. To me, that's like trying to change a tire with the car still going, so I'll wait a while longer for X1.
