Xfinity TV has limited menu options with Honeycomb ( Android 3.2.1) with HTC Flyer

Xfinity TV has limited menu options with Honeycomb ( Android 3.2.1) with HTC Flyer

Xfinity TV app has limited options with Android Honeycomb on my HTC Flyer. There are no options for On Demand, No options to search, to options to change settings, no options for DVR Manager, or no options for TV Control.  I have tablet running ICS (Android  4.0.3) and a phone running Gingerbread (Android 2.35) that DO have these options. 

 

Attached is a link to the screenshot...

the only thing you can do with android with comcast is change tv channels.

Sorry, your are incorrect. Please read my post. I have 2 other ANDROID devices, a Motorola Xoom running IceCream Sandwich (Android 4.0.3) and a HTC Evo running Gingerbread (Android 2.35). Both devices CAN record channels, search for tv/movies, manage the DVR, etc. The ONLY option my HTC Flyer, running Honeycomb (Android 3.2.1) , is to change the channel.

I have the same problem on my Galaxy tab.  The app seems not to function on 7" tabs.

The Xfinity.tv app does what is designed to do on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Honeycomb. It may be a device compatibility issue with the HTC Flyer....

I have the 10.1 samsung galxay tab and YES the app works.  It does NOT work on my brand new  samsung galxay tab 2 7".  There are other posts about this on the net.  The 7" screen (which only functions in portrait mode on the 7" screen) provides no way to access any options. You get the TV guide but nothing else.  If this was an IPAD the problem would have been fixed in 5 minutes.  Instead, the problem is ignored....and my post about being ignored gets deleted, in 5 minutes!

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" as well and have the same issue.  The menu buttons are at the bottom of the screen the first time you run the application, but after the first press of the back button, you can never get them back.  So no TV listings, search, On Demand or settings options.  The same version of the application works fine on my Samsung Galaxy S II running Gingerbread 2.3.6.

 

If you note Comcasts documentation for the app, they say select the menu button... which does not exist in ICS.  I think they failed to account for that when writing the app... so much for ICS compatibility.

Thanks for chiming in.  Once the Comcast engineers look at this, this the app can probably be updated in a matter of minutes.

I was able to validate this using a Logitech bluetooth keyboard for Android. It has the home, back and menu buttons on it, and pressing the menu button did bring up the menu on my Galaxy Tab 2. I still can't do it from Tab itself, but the application does function correctly otherwise.
