Start Playback of DVR Recordings Online

Start Playback of DVR Recordings Online

Hello,

 

I am visually impaired, so cannot access the menus on my DVR. It would be nice to be able to start playback of shows recorded on the DVR from the Xfinity ap. Note I don't care to watch recorded shows on the device, only initiate the playback. This way I could use a screen reader to find the shows I want and not have to traverse the menu system on the DVR.

 

I can start on-demand stuff from a computer, so it should be theoredically possible. If you can delete recordings from the My Recordings page, you can surely play them. I request this functionality be added as soon as possible.

 

Thanks

Re: Start Playback of DVR Recordings Online

How interesting. That was the same response I received back in 2011.

I was at least hoping to receive an update of some kind. Maybe that this feature is being worked on. Guess not...

My wife is visually impaired and would like the same capabilities.

I need this as well. Should be a simple tweak to push. No brainier, if you ask me.
