    I think the consensus is that the OnDemand experience on TiVo is better than on the Comcast set-top box/DVR. The video is the same (using the same mechanism), and the response time to trick-play requests is comparable to or better than the Comcast box.

    It has been working for me since Friday. The ap showed up around Labor Day; it just never launched. Trying to find out what Comcast did to fix the problem, so others in new rollout areas won't have to spend tens of hours on the phone.

    I'd agree with those statements.

    Good luck with that one. The Comcast CSRs don't seem too keen on talking about TiVo OnDemand at all. I still get the occasional error message when launching but 90% of the time trying it again immediately gets me in. I'm wondering if the timeout on the TiVo is set shorter than the timeout on the Comcast branded boxes. I know that it seems that you wait for ever on the Comcast boxes sometimes.

    I don't expect to get any info from a CSR. I'm working through a field tech and level 2 management.

    u have a tivo..on demand is for losers wh dont know how to record their programs or to buy rediculously expensive programs. If its so important get a spare cable box and switch to that when you need to watch something that bad. Other than a exclusive event...most everything on demand is avalble thru You Tube, Hulu, or any other premium channels app.

    Keep in mind that if you do not have it on your tivo, it is still possible to watch Comcast movies and shows on demand without renting a cable box. I will never have it on my Premiere due to not having TiVo service, but I still watch Comcast on demand content on my tv by having a computer connected to my tv:D. http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/
