why can't I access and play recorded programs on my DVR from my Xfinity App on my Iphone.  I can select programs to record, schedule recordings but can't go to "My Recordings" from my iphone and have to use the old remote.  Seems an easy programming fix so I can do it all from my Iphone app.

Except for the AnyRoom DVR's, none of the others can stream programs from the DVR.  If the AnyRoom DVR would ever have that capability, no one knows.

 

If and when Comcast ever goes to a cloud based DVR, maybe this would be possible.

 

Tivo Premier's can stream recordings to IOS devices by adding the Tivo Stream now.

yes, exactly.  I just want the ability to select and start/play an already recorded program on my DVR from my iphone. Don't care if I could download to my phone.
