Smart resume problems

My smart resume hasn’t been working lately. The yellow/commercials aren’t correct. When I fast forward, there are still several commercials. Half of the show doesn’t have the yellow.

@user_543aa9 Thank you for reaching out on the Xfinity Community Forums. There is a known issue with the smart resume. This is currently being working on. A temporary solution is what you have recently tried by turning it off and then back on again. We are happy to hear you have seen some improvement. Thank you for your patience as we work towards a complete resolution.

@XfinityJanelle​ I turned smart resume off and back on but nothing changed. There is definitely a time syncing problem and this has happened in past years and it makes no sense that it is still not fixed this time. The entire country of users is being affected.  This also affects DVR recordings ending before the end of the program which just NOT acceptable. You have no idea how frustrating all this is for your customers.

Is there an update on a fix?

I am having the same problem. Most of the time the show is in the yellow. It is definitely out of sync.

@user_543aa9​  Most of the time the Xfinity replies are 'canned' answers that rarely solve the issue.

Hi there @user_543aa9, we are still working on this issue. We do have a temporary fix as we work to have a permanent fix. You can turn the smart resume off and then on again. It is under the settings section then preferences, then general and then smart resume section.

Seems as though this is a system wide issue.  Not all recordings are affected.

Hello, @Shapoonie! Thanks for commenting on our community forums. This is a known issue, and it's being worked on. Some customers have noticed improvement when they switch the smart resume off and on. Have you tried that already?

Turning it off and back on does NOTHING

Having the same issue in Northern California. And not just me.

It's obviously an xfinity problem. Xfinity needs to fix it.

I really don't understand how xfinity thinks this is an improvement. They change their code to make an "improvement" and in doing so, break something that was working perfectly fine! In my day, we always tested changes to make sure everything worked fine before we put changes into production. But I've never worked for xfinity. I'm sure they don't even know the meaning of regression testing. (Sorry, I'm just mad.)

Having the same issues in Indiana.

DVR shows cuts off before end of show that are DVR plus commercials are off when have yellow fast forward though them.  Smart Resume backs up over 30 seconds of the last commercial or two.  We have NOT made any settings changes.  This is a system issue with Xfinitiy but appears to have been ignored for over one year now.

Hey there, thanks for reaching out through Xfinity Forums! There is a known issue with Smart Resume. Have you tried turning off Smart Resume and then turning it back on to see if that helps?

Stop asking if this works, it doesn't. This will remain "broken" until Xfinity decides that its customers don't have to watch 2 commercials during fast forwarding
