Has anyone ever seen an answer, or can someone from Comcast maybe reply, to the question; why can't we get single button access to recordings?
It's been many years and this is a basic UI request that is very easy to solve and would be commonly used.
So many possible implementations. Some examples -
- Change the Xfininity button to open to Saved, instead of Guide (because there is already a separate button for the Guide!)
- Remember/don't reset where the Xfinity button takes me every single night.
- Allow some type of programmable option (like the 30 second skip).
- Put something optional in the Comcast Labs that allows us to choose where the Xfinity button opens.
I know this is not a button per se but there is a way to get there without all the button pressing. use the voice remote and say the command for recordings, which is "go to my recordings". I just tested it and it works flawlessly!
Cool, will try that for sure, thanks.
You are welcome.I am glad I was able to be of assistance!
Very helpful, for your next trick, can you poke someone at Comcast with a stick and get them to actually implement the UI?
Haha!! glad my suggestion was helpful. I do agree that it should exist in the UI but I believe the future of X1 is the voice remote, which I have embraced fully. I see the day coming soon for when I will not have the need for button pressing besides launching voice commands and even that can be eliminated by using voice to make the command, similar to "hey siri" ! Until that day, I agree with you that the button pressing should be able to be limited to one press. Hopefully Andrew or another rep can speak to this when they have time.
I should probably use it more often than I do.
And if a voice command could get X1 to back up a slight amount, then slow mo forward, and stop on a frame, then i'd be all over it.
Yesterday I spent several mintues, maybe 20-25 tries, trying to get it to back up and then slo mo and stop at the exact point the ball hit the sand in a volleyball match, but never could, so just had to give up. Future without slo mo and frame by frame is most definitely not awesome.
Can we add a voice command to delete a recording and MAKE IT actually delete it? The ghost delete is worse than ever. Hardly anything will delete these days. So weary of syncing DVR.
