Can't set recordings from stream app

So this has happened to me before on occasion but not lately, but today I tried to set recordings for several different things using the xfinity stream app and for some reason today the option just isn't there. Over the weekend I also just happened to read that Comcast just lost a decision by the ITC in favor of Rovi in a patent suit saying that Comcast is infringing on Rovi's patent for the technology in the app that is used to set recordings on mobile devices for X1 set top boxes. So I'm just wondering is it just a coincidence that it's not even an option for me today and perhaps due to maintenance of some kind on the app, or did Comcast temporarily pull this technology from the app as a result of the ruling by the ITC? Thanks very much to anyone who can shed some light on this.

They just brought it back today!  It only took them 2 years to solve their dispute with Tivo, I guess?  I wonder what happened, as it didn't look like it was moving in the right direction 6 months ago: https://www.insidesources.com/this-patent-battle-is-one-reason-why-comcast-customers-receive-inferior-service-and-may-soon-face-another-downgrade/

Apparently, as of today, this appears to have been remedied. I had a msg in the app that you can now set recordings again on app and stream site. ...OMGGGGGG!!!! I’ve missed this. I was researching more info abt court cases or how this was resolved. Still searching. But it seems to be working again for now.
