TV Remote App no longer Records

ANSWERED

TV Remote App no longer Records

When I was not at home I used to be able to use the TV Remote app to record a program in my absence.  The new version of the app no longer has a Record function only a Watch function. Any advice on how to Record remotely?

Accepted Solution

Re: TV Remote App no longer Records

I have found that if I use the  "Xfinity TV" app instead of the the "Xfinity TV Remote" app I can record a future program. Perhaps the TV Remote app never had that capability.  I will use the TV app rather than the TV Remote app in the future.

Yes, I signed out of the app and signed back in.  It still does not show a Record function.

on an X1 set top box connected TV check the username listed at the xFinity button >> gear(settings) >> My Account >> Account Details  --- be sure that is the username that you used on the app, too.

when you looked at the 'account details' screen were all the other items filled in like name, preferred email, etc?  I'm thinking something may be disconnected in the backend from your equipment. My account details were all blank except username one time when I lost access temporarily to the DVRs(3). If that doesn't clear it I'll ask a comcast rep to look into your account by contacting you on this thread.

I believe it has to do with the update to ios 10.

 

It removed the DVR option on the bottom of the screen and the ability to record. 

 

Hopefully a fix will happen soon
