watching a program from the beginning while recording

watching a program from the beginning while recording

Are these DVR' incapable of starting from the beginning while in the process of recording?  No matter how many times I push the "start from beginning" button, it will only start from the point when I tuned into it, and not from the beginning.

hi, are you speaking of a 'hot' (you hit record on remote while watching something) or a scheduled recording? While connected to your home Xfinity Internet you can watch a recording that is in process of recording. You can always restart from the beginning of the recording, but note that if you hit record 10 minutes into a show the recording will only contain the program from the time you hit record (no buffer is recorded).
