Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

It just doesn't download the Tv listings at all.

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

do you have it set to the right zip code?  have you cleared your cookies and cache.  What version of android are you running, it does not work for all, and all you can do is change the cable box channel with it in certain markets.

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

these are what comcast posts as the requirements.

 

Compatibility and Known Issues:
- Xfinity TV app supports most Android handsets running Android 2.2 and higher.
- Xfinity TV app supports the Motorola Xoom tablet running Android v3.1 and later. Other Honeycomb v3.x tablets with a 1280x800 resolution should work. We will certify the application on additional tablets soon.
- Xfinity TV app may work on other Android devices not listed above but it has not been designed or optimized for them. They are currently unsupported.
- Xfinity TV app currently supports devices that allow more than a 16MB memory limit on applications and will automatically detect the required memory. This includes most devices. However, the AT&T HTC Aria is a notable exception and is not compatible.

 

  • Android phone with Android OS 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3

  • Play Now feature available on iPad, iPhone 3GS or newer, and iPod touch 3rd generation or newer over WiFi connection
  • Internet connection (Wireless or 3G)
  • XFINITY TV or Comcast Digital TV service
  • Compatible cable/set-top box (for TV and DVR control)
  • Comcast ID or Comcast.net email address and password

I'm not sure what you mean by "I set it the same as the web site I use on my desk top". The Xfinity.tv App doesn't need a website 'set'. 

 

If you are having trouble with the app, try rebooting your phone to make sure the app is not running, then going into your Application management app that is part of the Android OS, and clearing the data for the Xfinity.tv App, then try starting the app again.

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

I meant i set it to Lambertville Cable same as home. Ohter than that.. all my set top boxes show up no problem then when I hit next to load the tv -listings.... it just spins the timer loader round and round..it never loads a thing. I have uninstalled it adn reinstalled it numerous times now. I have given up. I also ran it on my wireless network at work and home as well as the ATT wireless network. Nothing matters, it just doesn tload the Tv listings nor let me get back to settings.

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

does it work on your pc?  try logging in and out of the app.  Like it says above the app does not work on every tablet.

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

uninstalling and re-installing doesn't necessarily delete the application data. Try my suggestion of deleting the application data before you give up....

Re: Android AP on Samsung Galaxy

Sorry it's not happening for you...I have a Samsung Galaxy S (AT&T Captivate) running GB, and the Xfinity.tv app works fine on it. Not sure what else to suggest.....it does take a while to download the listings though...
