Xfinity X1 DVR self install kit

See what’s inside an Xfinity X1 self install kit. Instructions for Comcast Internet / Voice modem were included. That piece of hardware was not in box – because I prefer to own device versus paying a monthly rental fee.

This X1 DVR replaces our old Motorola DCX3400 which had been in use since April 11th 2011. Unit was still working when it was just retired over 8 and 1/2 years later.

Unit in box above is a PACE PX013ANM. 6 tuners are enabled.

Supposedly number of tuners available can vary depending on your service area. This is almost always hardware specific.
