Remote viewing on my X1 DVR

Remote viewing on my X1 DVR

I use to have Dish and I could log in to my DVR at home from another location when out of town. It would be as if I have my DVR right there with me!

I know that you can sign on to the website and view on demand or recordings from your DVR. I want to log in to my DVR and watch live programming from any channel that I have subscribed to like I could with Dish.

I cannot get a straight answer from anyone on if the X1 can do this or not. Anyone on here that can give me some help / answers?

Straight answer ..you can't, you can set your DVR remotely but not watch it, maybe in the future with x2

There are a few channels that you can watch live on your pc/laptop but not recordings
