Anyone using the X1 Platform?  I saw a commercial for it on TV last night.  It's pretty slick.  There's 6 tuners in the box, only 5 are active now.  So you can record 4 things and watch a 5th.  Rumor is that the 6th tuner might be reserved for transcoding live TV in real time for other devices... but that's yet to be confirmed.


The UI looks really fluid.  Very smooth and quick between screens.  From YouTube video reviews, it seems to be kind of Apple like in how it navigates around the menu's.  It appears to be the most advanced DVR / On screen operating system from any TV provider right now.


Just check the various search results on Xfinity X1 on YouTube
