If I cannot use AirPlay is there ANY WAY to watch my DVR etc without an HDMI cord or port that isn't working. I got the Stream Tv app so I could use AirPlay but apparently that's not allowed? ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED since I pay $200+ a month for Comcast service and would like to use what I pay for

What is the source of the shows (phone, tablet, pc......)? If the source is a smart device (phone or tablet), comcast has blocked mirroring to a tv.

Re: Xfinity Stream TV

If I cannot use AirPlay from my iPhone to Apple TV is there ANY WAY to watch my DVR etc without an HDMI cord or port that isn't working? My Comcast box is fine but I can't get a picture or connection so can I stream it to a tv in anyway?. I got the Stream Tv app so I could use AirPlay but apparently that's not allowed? ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED since I pay $200+ a month for Comcast service and would like to use what I pay for @ least until I get a new tv or HDMI cord

unfortunately the owner's of the content have used DRM (digital rights management) to stop that function from working for portable 'smart' devices. the use of HDMI is allowed for desk/laptop computers as currently the HDMI link is a grandfathered extra screen allowed connection.  Currently, some Roku devices are permitted to be attached to a TV while in the beta testing of the stream app but eventually will be a charge to the account to use the Roku.
