cloud dvr playback skips

When I try watching DVR'd programs using the app of streaming website, the programs randomly skip ahead. This happens on every program I try to watch this way. It does not happen when I watch these same program straight from the DVR on my TV. It also has never happened prior to yesterday (I frequently stream my DVR'd shows while working). Any suggestions? I have tried logging out and in, killing the app and reloading, etc.

I have the same issue constantly.  I just tried watching "The Kennedy's" on demand and couldn't get past the first couple minutes because of skips.  I've been having the problem for several months and reported it to support, but it's still happening.

Comcast is reporting they have a national outage that primarily affects northeast states. no estimated time of repair has been issued.

I have had the same issue for months. Comcast came out and looked at the equipment, reset stuff remotely, still not fixed.

Re: cloud dvr playback skips

I'm having the same skipping issue.  I am a new xfinity costumer (started early February) and I've been having this issue from the beginning of my service contract.  I tried to send you my info in a PM but when I click "send message" the next page doesn't have any text boxes for me to type you a message.  Is there another way I can relay my info?

I sent you a PM.  I just had to post in the forum before I could send a PM.

Please add me to the list of people experiencing this error. For some more data points

 

1. The recording does not skip when viewing directly on the TV

2. The recording skips when I play it via the website, tv.xfinity.com

3. The recording skips when I stream a program and play it via the Xfinity mobile app

4. The recording skips after I "Download" it to the mobile device and play it locally or offline.

 

This is a recent issue and this did not happen for me a few months ago.

the problem is the cloud DVR's created recording in your 2-4 are all the same exact recording so you would expect a short recording to be short on any device that it is played back. The home DVR version is normal. One customer said they have been fixed, most won't write in the forum when the problem goes away. the engineers are working on the problem.
