watch DVR'd programs on computer

Hi,

  i have a general question. Is it possible to watch a show i taped on DVR on my Mac laptop using the DVR manager feature?

 It seems so far that I can use the DVR manager to see which shows I've taped and I have the option to watch them on TV - that works fine. But I didnt know if I could watch them on the computer, I thought this was possible, but I cant figure it out. Thanks!

Re: watch DVR'd programs on computer

No you can't.  If you have X1 with cloud DVR, you can watch or download on tablets & phones, but not a pc or Mac.

 

The older legacy DVR's with the blue guide can't play to anything but the TV, unless you purchase & configure a Slingbox.

 

Your only option is to stream limited live & demand programming from comcast.net
