It's unbelievable that Comcast has allowed this ancient bug to carry forward from it's Legacy equipment into X1. This should have been fixed a decade ago.

IMHO when a non-DVR gets a "record" command, it should respond with an error message, not "nothing". This is especially surprising for a sell-at-every-opportunity company like Comcast. A "Get one our wonderful DVRs!" message in that circumstance would be better than a response of "nothing", and perhaps more profitable.
