    Is the Channel 1 for Comcast On Demand support to work or Show Up?? It says searching for signal when I tune to 1.

    I have the On Demand functionality via Tivo Menus OK.

    If you didn't get the Premiere from Comcast then their On-Demand channel is probably not going to work. I have Suddenlink cable in my area and it is the same situation. If I had gotten my Premiere from them, then I would be able to get their VOD channel but they would have blocked the Amazon VOD capability of the Tivo.

    Comcast is NOT providing customers with Premieres. OnDemand should work on Premiere's in the Bay Area and Boston (and southern NH). Channel 1 doesn't do anything for me either but OnDemand works through the menus.

    If you have Xfinity, and the Latest software update, 20.2+, then it should be in the On Demand menu.

    I don't think it works that way. Do Comcast boxes work that way? I just thought it was a reserved channel for OnDemand videos that were selected via the menus.

    Since I traded out my Series 2 Tivos, and the cable boxes, for Premieres and CableCARDs, I no longer get the 'on demand' stuff on channel 1 either (Charter). I guess that's just the way it is until Tivo bridges that. For us it's not in the menu yet either. :(

    I've heard they are working on it and some cable companies, in some areas, already have access to it. I never really used it too much (it was just too frustrating trying to find anything on the interface we had) but, of course, as soon as it was gone I found myself trying to 'get there'. ha!

    On the TiVo, you don't go to Channel 1 like you do on the Comcast set-top box. You go to the XFINITY OnDemand item in the My Shows list. It is considered another video source alongside Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, etc.

    I asked them about this over at AVS Forums, I got this answer "Cable cards are 1 way devices so On Demand is currently not available on non-charter tivo boxes. I will pass your feedback along though in case we every have that capability. Currently this is not possible with the cable cards." ( http://www.avsforum.com/t/903396/charter-hdtv/2700_50#post_22185318 )

    I replied back and said that Comcast is able to do it, but never received a reply to that post.

    Comcast Xfinity OnDemand is currently only available to Tivo Premiere in certain markets, currently only in San Francisco Bay Area, and Boston. Its unknown when it will expand to other areas.
