to use your computer to change channels on your tv you have just go to the comcast website and click change channel, this mostly only works for motorola boxes currently though.  I find it much easier to just press enter on my remote than to have a pc with me

Re: Using computer as remote control for TV listing

Go here to the channel listing.

http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings

 

Easier to have the remote?  My shop is in the garage, and the TV is downstairs.

I like changing channels from the shop so I don't have to traipse through the house.

It used to work just fine until the TV listings page was changed a week ago. Now it doesn't.

Thank you for the reply.

It's not a case of being easier. The remote control is right next to me.

When using the Xfinity web page I can view what's on each channel, see information about a show, and then select the show I want to watch.

 

And yes.......... I know there's a guide on the hand held remoye.
