Re: X1 DVR recordings often cut short in stream app.

This has been happening on and off for maybe 2 years to me.  Different channels, programs, times. Nothing consistent. Will tape a few minutes into the cloud or not even show a program as recorded at all.  They are complete on my home DVR.  

 

ALSO, 3 days ago, the ability to see recordings or scheduled recordings is not working on any iPad in my house. What is up?  Uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted, etc.  Nothing works and the 5 or more very Lengthy calls to tier 3 for help have been NO HELP!!!!!

Hi D2Bolako, we recently launched a new version on the Xfinity Stream app (version 4.8.1) please delete the app that you have installed currently and install the app again so that your app can be updated. Feel free to reach back out to me here if you notice the same issues with DVR playback after installing the latest version of the app.

Re: X1 DVR recordings often cut short in stream app.

This is happening to me too. My "This Is Us" recording is the one that is consistently cut short on the Stream App even though there is space in my Cloud and the entire recording is on my DVR box. I have the most recent version of the App on my phone. I'm also in the Chicago area. What's going on Comcast?

Re: X1 DVR recordings often cut short in stream app.

Hello @Mregan3,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We just released a new update of the Stream app. I'd like to see if your issues were related to known issues with the last version. Please follow the steps below and let me know if you are still experiencing issues with your recordings.

 

  1. Uninstall the Xfinity Stream app
  2. Power down your phone for 1-2 minutes
  3. Reinstall the new version of the Xfinity Stream app

Please let me know if you are still having the same problem. If so, I'd like to take a deeper look into your account to see what more could be causing this.

Hey Chibaby, 

 

Thanks for trying those steps and confirming for me. Since this didn't help, I'll need to look into a few things on the back end to see if your issues are something the advanced should be notified about. Can you please verify your first and last name, full street address, and the phone number or account number associated with your services in a private message? 

 

To send a private message click on my name "ComcastChe", then click private message me.

Re: X1 DVR recordings often cut short in stream app.

Hi Chibaby, 

 

Thanks for verifying. I figured we could continue to discuss this here on the public thread to help others who are having the same issues. I checked the signal levels on your equipment to see if I could locate a cause for the issues with your recordings. At this time I don't see anything. Your signals are perfect.

  1. Is this only happening on the recordings being played from the Stream app?
  2. Are you able to confirm if this happens on the actual DVR recordings?
  3. What are some of the recordings you have noticed this in thus far?

Thanks for replying. "This Is Us" won't have a new episode until 2/27 due to the Olympics. I will let you know what happens with that recording (or reach out if it happens sooner with any other recordings). Thank you!

Re: X1 DVR recordings often cut short in stream app.

Ok Mregan3, 

 

Please do! I'll be happy to help.
