Re: Setting a reminder sight the new x1 box and x2 remote

The set top box and remote control have no function to set reminders, AFAIK.

 

This can be done using the Queue feature on the xfinity.com/tv website. 

 

You can set up action to tune a program on the TV, play it on PC or record on DVR.

Re: Setting a reminder sight the new x1 box and x2 remote

I just upgraded to x1 and thought I was crazy when I couldn't set a program reminder. How could comcast not include this function....it's really important. They have got to get the reminders in the upgrade.

Agree.  Just got Comcast TV today and went looking for the reminder and couldn't find it.  I was certain I was just missing it as it seems it would be a basic function.  Reading these reviews indicates otherwise.  This function needs to be added in the next upgrade.

Afraid not..... you can prgram your Favorite Channels listing, but that will also "go away" after 90 minutes, give or take.....  it is what it is....

This is TOTALLY lame. This is a big feature that we use in our house and to see that this is no longer available is quite disappointing to say the least.

Just got X1 today.  To find out that there is no reminder function is a game changer.  Very disappointed.

I use a smartphone app - TV Show Tracker.  I paid 99cents to get rid of the ads.

Re: Setting a reminder sight the new x1 box and x2 remote

It is crazy how comast got rid of many important functions.    Setting reminders is a really important one.   Last time I was so tied up watching some movies in my favorites and completely forgot the NBA game finals that was on.  I was beating myself up.   Reminder is so important and I simply don't get it why xfinity development team doesn't even care about it.   I think maybe the developers and managers use direct tv in their homes and program for xfinity ..LOL.   So they really don't know or don't care sometimes what is important to consumers.
