DVR shows not Showing on app

DVR shows not Showing on app

I faithfully use my dvr from home on varius different shows. I stream from my app on android & my laptop but for a few months now my recordings are not showing all my recordings. I only get 2 shows of recordings showing up on my laptop and android. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on my phone still none of my shows are showing up. Is there a way to show all my recordings I have on my dvr to show up online or on my app?

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

I figured this out on my own sorry Comcast you lost this one lol. You only have limited space to hold recording on you "cloud dvr". So try deleting some of your old dvr shows and it should start recording newly recorded shows as they are scheduled. The bar at the top shows how much you have left on your "cloud dvr" before it reached 100% capacity. I hope this helps and sorry it to me so long to respond! Happy DVR watching!!!

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

Hello all, in most cases when your app does not display all of your recordings it's due to a disconnect between the DVR and the app. Your app mirrors your DVR content, so when all of then content doesn't show the system needs to refresh so that all of the information can be read correctly. To fix this issue try removing the app from your device, and then reboot your DVR, once the DVR has rebooted then install the app again and sign in.

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

Same here. It's extremely frustrating. I am sitting on my back porch just feet away from my DVR. I am trying to watch my DVR recordings via the website. Randomly a recording will show up on the website, but I have a lot of recordings. Now, it is only showing recordings for one particular show.  This is ridiculous. I continue to have issues with Xfinity apps, etc. The live tv works fine on the website. Obviously, I can't uninstall your web address. The cloud should sync automatically.

Any chance you are too far away from your network and the shows are in home only?

The cloud dvr will hold 60 hours of recordings. You don't have to delete shows to record new one as the oldest show will be deleted to make room for the new ones.

 

"Only the most recent 60 hours of recordings are available for X1 Cloud DVR functionality. The availability of content on your mobile devices and computers may be slightly less than that on your TV. If you exceed the 60-hour limit, the oldest recordings will drop off for any new recordings. These recordings may still be available for viewing on your TV."

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

they only drop off the way you have them set up to be recorded and i have most my recordings set for 1 year. so in that case i will have to delete my recordings.

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

My physical DVR is only 55% while my cloud DVR is only at 75%. Yet numerous of my recordings are not showing up in my cloud DVR. Is there a way to get more cloud DVR storage? If not, then this is a dumb problem and bad foresight on Comcasts part. Cloud DVR should be as large as ones physical DVR, especially for those of us trying to catch up on shows while away from our physical DVRs. Or at least Comcast should give its costumer the option to upgrade to a larger cloud DVR for a small monthly charge of $1-$2.

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

I agree totally, we should have the same usage or the offer to buy more space but when I spoke to a lvl 3 tech from Comcast, who confirmed the smaller cloud storage, there is no offer there at the moment. If we could voice it, I'd love to!

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

Same problem - app does not show what is on DVR with the exception of three shows. App shows 8% storage used. DVR also not close to being full.

 

What is strange is that the "deleted" shows on app does match DVR, and if you restore a deleted show in the app it then shows up in "saved" and can be viewed, so it seems there is a partial sync going on but only of deleted shows, not saved or scheduled. Any ideas?

Tried this and it did not help - reloaded apps after refreshing DVR and they still show only three recordings and none of the "scheduled" recordings that DVR shows.  Not a space issue on either.

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

Same here. Did it a few times and only see a few recordings

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

I have the same issue....my DVR says I have 117 shows recorded and the cloud app says I have 54. Comcast is misleading customers that they can watch their recordings on any device any time. 

New Poster

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

Same here: Neither DVR nor App show more than 65% full.  Many shows don't show on X1 Streaming app - nor online via PC (same list of shows listed on app and PC).  That is, not all that are shown when I am looking at recorded shows on the TV are showing via app or PC.

 

Not sure if this is helpful, but for yucks I downloaded the X1 Remote App.  That ACCURATELY showed all DVR recordings just like the DVR/TV - but alas it's just a 'remote' and will only let you watch those shows on the TV.  Not sure why that app seems synced and the other does not.  NOTE that I have tried the DVR sync and uninstall/instal app suggestion(s).  No dice. 

Pretty frustrating. Help!

C'mon Xfinity - you can do it!

Re: DVR shows not Showing on app

I have 90% space left on dvr but we got caught up, however Xfinity stream is showing 50% left.. yet half my shows aren’t showing up. I want to bring them back somehow so I can watch and delete from my physical dvr.

the cloud DVR only holds up to the last 60 hours recorded. once 'gone' they can't be reloaded.
