How to access TV listings and schedule recordings on X1 DVR from a computer

Comcast made a change to the Xfinity web site a few weeks ago and since then I am unable to find the page that displays the TV schedule grid with channels on the left side, times across the top, buttons to filter for HD and Sports. There I could click on a program and schedule it to be recorded by my DVR. Now when I click on the TV icon at the website it asks me to activate the device and give it a name. I think it thinks I want to WATCH TV on that computer. I don't want to WATCH TV on that computer. I just want to find and schedule programs to record.

 

I am posting this here because Comcast makes it SO difficult to get help if you click Support on the website. Very frustrating. Makes me want to revive the "Comcast Must Die!!" web site.

 

Thanks,

Don

Comcast replaced the website a few weeks ago. Most of the great features of the old one are gone. To control your dvr, the new site requires x1 service with cloud storage enabled on you account. If you don't have both x1 and cloud storage, the xfinity tv remote app and your hand held remote are the only ways to control your dvr. Yes, the new site is geared towards watching on your pc.
