Re: can I watch movie by usb drive in Xfinity Cable box?

I have xfinity cable box which I got from my cable company. It is working nice and giving superb performance. Even my cable is working better than before. Cable operator provide to customer because it increase signal strength for best resolution in large size TV. It has usb port which supports pen drive and external hard disk drive. So, you can connect pen drive in xfinity cable box to watch movie and video but make sure movie and video are in supported file format. The supported file for movie and video are xdiv, avi, mp4, mpeg for xfinity cable box. You also play music via usb drive in your TV. Some format are not supported in this box so you can convert it to play those movies.

Re: can I watch movie by usb drive in Xfinity Cable box?

I also have xfinity cable box. It is working nice with my TV. I was got it from my cable operator to supports high resolution and HD quality in my TV. External drive and pen drive also supports in xfinity cable box. My external drive is always connected with it. I know your problem why your box is not supports your external drive. Cable box and external drive Both are working fine but problem is with file format. Means if your external drive is formatted with NTFS file format then it is not detecting by xfinity box but detect by computer. Computer supports NTFS file format but xfinity box can not. So, format your drive to FAT or FAT32 partition file format through computer and it is working to Xfinity as well as computer.
