Re: January Launch
Overall impressions seem quite positive, with users in particular noting that the X2 seems much faster and responsive. Not too surprisingly not many of the features and apps are buggy or don't work since this is obviously still being tested, but if I were Comcast I'd be pleased with the responses I've seen. Excitement seems on par with the user excitement surrounding Verizon's set top GUI advancements. Carrier GUI updates was a sector few consumers got excited about a few years back (and still don't for operators for which improvements aren't a priority).

Re: January Launch
Yes, from reading your forum reports, it looks like Comcast is pushing out a rolling update to block X2. Hope they at least take advantage of the free feedback in the meantime...

January Launch
Someone informed me that after that report went up, Comcast began blocking the functionality as expected.

I was under the impression the X2 was a new hardware revision; I didn't realize it was a software update. I'll be curious to see the cloud DVR storage functionality at work.

A Comcast insider tells me that they're looking at January for a broader launch of the X2 in many markets.
