I am one of the lucky users who is in one of the right locations in the SF Bay and now have Xfinity on Demand on my Premiere Elite!
It worked very well last week ... for a couple of days, until Saturday.
Since Saturday (4/14), I can still access Xfinity on Demand, browse the shows / movies, see which are free or for a charge, and select one.
But when I select "Watch now", I am getting a black screen and, a few seconds later, an error message saying I should try disconnecting and reconnecting the cable, and if that does not work, I should contact Comcast with error number: SRM-8001.
I did the cable disconnect / reconnect - did not help.
I restarted the tivo box a few times - did not help.
I called Comcast, who had no idea what I was talking about (told me Tivo does not support on demand ...).
I have a Comcast tech coming over on Saturday, but am wondering if he'll be able to help ... wondering if the issue is on the tivo end or comcast end...
Frustrating, as it was working beautifully until Saturday....
