When I downloaded the mobile app it skipped setup and immediately found my "upstairs" and "downstairs" boxes, which were set up by and never worked with the early comcast tv remote app which I deleted.
This new version will not change channels on that upstairs Motorola DCH3200 either (haven't checked downstairs). I was told by xfinity support to delete the boxes in DVR manager and start over. But I don't have and don't want to pay for DVR service. So how do I get DVR manager to work without activating service and payments? Hmmm?
well its called dvr manager, which lets you manage your dvr. What else are you going to do with it if you dont have a dvr?
What are you expecting here?
Thanks for the non question. Dvr manager is for a dvr if you dont have a dvr I dont see what you are trying to do. i asked because maybe what you want cannot be done or there is a work around, and since it seems no one else wants to respond to your post maybe you would like some help.
When dvr manager recogizes your cable boxes they are set up to use the service. you do not have a dvr so you cannot take advantage of the service. the only thing you can do is change a channel with a mobile device which is useless.
Yes the app does do that but you cant translate that back to your tv without the dvr box. You can change channels without a dvr though I can with my moto digital only box. you also do not need a dvr to watch the shows on your mobile device.
When you talk dvr manager that means the ability to manage your dvr with the app, like setting recordings, deleting recordings, seeing whats on your dvr, whats next to record. That is just a portion of the app, the app lets you change the channel and watch tv and on demand shows. you need to make a distinction between the two parts.
You cannot remove the boxes they are recognized by the website. You can start the process over again by going here though.
