i'm suspicious, too. however, keep in mind my experience is with hands-on use and examination my neighbor's equipment, not simply word of mouth between friends. i will have another opportunity to more closely explore in the future, so i'll keep you posted. sorry i've been slow to further research, it's been a little hectic lately, but i promise to have additional info this week, and i'll add this - the box is not displayed on any comcast support site online that i have found that provides user guides/support. is there an xr15 remote combination for x1 that would allow access to view a system menu?
