I recently moved my service from Maryland to Florida. My DVR Manager does not work now. For days it has not synced after various attempts online with my home computer and iPad app. I have also used the temporary number feature, albeit the online webpages have no place to input that number. I have also done the lame unplugging of the DVR from the power source. Would very much like to manage my DVR again from my home computer, iPad, and iPhone. What else can I do please?
The number doesn't do anything and is not needed. What happened when you called Comcast support? It's usually a coding issue with your account that the Comcast CSR needs to take care of.
I did not get through to Customer Service. The system hung up on me twice. The first call to the 1-800 number was a bust. The people in Richmond claimed they could not help and then gave me a number in Florida. They transfered the call and the call was then dropped. The Florida number also drops the call. Hence the reason I am resorting to this message board for a solution that I could potentially implement myself.
Ironically, this incident comes on top of a two-hour late installation at my home, followed by the tech leaving my home with only one of two TV jacks working (and mud throughout my home), resulting in a second tech visit to my home that was rescheduled without my knowledge (leaving me at home waiting) to the next day (day three in other words), where upon the all three jacks were turned on. Wow. What a mess.
I know this is a crazy idea, but would you be able/willing to communicate my request to CSR? Unless a miracle happens tonight I have a doubt about getting through the robo answering machine system to get a human being.
The Comcast Cares Team has been notified and will contact the local people to get all your issues corrected.
Watch this post and your email for updates from the team, most likely late in the business week.
FYI--The Florida robo phone system sometimes (yes, not always) that the customer type in a very long account number. Perhaps they could come up with a better system. If one no longer receives paper bills, it is exceeding difficult to look up an electronic version of the bill on a smartphone while punching in an account number. Actually, it's impossible since a copy/paste function is not available in that mode. Perhaps account numbers should not be used? Hope this helps achieve better service please.
Your already being taken care of, so Rog should back off.
