    The XoD menu system certainly counters most of the benefits of XoD.

    The horribly, ugly, annoying, irritating XoD system translates well to TiVo. Just coloring that horribleness blue and putting TiVo design language on it doesn't make it suck any less though.

    Not available in Atlanta metro. Searched several ZIP codes around Georgia. This must be limited to only a few cities.

    It says that it is available in my zip code in Illinois, but I am not seeing it anywhere. It is not listed in Find TV, Movies & Videos or listed under My Video Providers. I called them and they verified that I have the appropriate codes. Hopefully it will show up in the next few days.

    My cousin lives in downtown Chicago - zip 60610; it is listed as available in that zip. I'm guessing we will see reports of availability sometime in the next few days.

    I'm in the 60089 zip code and it shows as available, but I'm not seeing it yet. It's been almost 2 years since San Francisco got Xfinity On Demand, I can wait a few more days.

    My ZIP shows it too, but it's not showing on my TiVo either. Going to see if a restart brings it up.

    Nope. Connect to TiVo, reboot, nuttin.

    LOL, yeah that's funny Tivo - 'Georgia' usually includes the largest and capital city.

    Not available for my zip either.

    My zipcode near Wrigley Field in Chicago is showing as available.
    Where in the interface would the 'button' appear? I don't see anything as of now.

    It will eventually show up for you as a video source similar to Netflix, Hulu, etc. The XFINITY On Demand programming will be presented to you as part of TiVo's unified search capability as well.

    Can't wait for VOD to show up. I can finally replace a cable box with a Mini!

    Chicago 60607 says available but not showing up on TiVo app yet. I wonder if it showing up is similar to a software update where it needs to connect to TiVo service, download something, then reboot?

    Not really working though. It plays for 3-5 seconds, and then stops. Multiple shows tried. HD & SD. Just enough time to see the network banner logo splash screens.

    THis sounds like the symptoms of an improperly paired card, based upon feedback from other markets.

    I think the TiVo needs to be at least a Premiere. My TiVoHD doesn't show the OnDemand button.
