Re: watching DVR programs away from home

You would need to purchase, install and configure a Slingbox  in your home for streaming in or out the home to a laptop or other portable device.

 

There is no function to do it directly.

Re: watching DVR programs away from home

Since a DVR is essentiall a Hard Drive, can I take it with me, hook it up to another Xfinity-connected TV and, at least, PLAY what is already recorded?

 

How about recording?

Re: watching DVR programs away from home

There is no such thing as watching recorded videos in our DVR using our phone or tablet. Am an xfinity triple play complete HD subscriber but none of the customer service representative has the knowledge to guide me through. I used the xfinity tv app, followed the instruction but nothing. They transfered me for 6 departments now, NOTHING. It work as a SCAM. So frustrated.
