Video freezing on iPhone and iPad app

When I play back video on iPad or iPhone from my DVR the video stops and the audio keeps going. This happened for several Olympic broadcasts and more recently for Thursday night football. I can watch without issue on the tv or desktop. This persisted despite restart of all hardware and reinstall action of app on iPad.

Oh no, that's definitely frustrating @user_8078cf! Have you already checked your iPad and iPhone to make sure they're up-to-date and meeting the app requirements

I have the same problem & it’s been occurring for months.  IOS is up to date as is the Xfinity app.   I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the Xfinity app and rebooted the IPAD multiple times.  Nothing has helped!

Brand new iPad, brand new iPhone. Same problem as everyone else has mentioned with the frozen video or black screen while the audio continues. Pretty obvious xfinity knows the app is garbage but just wants to blame it on our equipment.

Hello, @user_3f294a. I see you are having a similar issue as well. Can I have more details about the troubleshooting steps you've taken so far? Do you see this only on your iOS equipment, or is it present with any mobile device you use?

I’m having the same issue on multiple devices. All are up to date with current iOS and app version. It’s even more frustrating since my cell phone service is through Xfinity. 

Since this is obviously a known issue, why hasn’t it been fixed?!

Hello, @Beckah, I can definitely help you with your streaming DVR issues. So we don't go through any repeated steps, what troubleshooting have you done already?

I am having the exact same problem. Black screen or frozen screen while audio continues and no amount of trouble shooting has fixed it. I’ve restarted the app and device multiple times. Logged out of the app. Updated device software. Updated the app. Disconnected and reconnected to WiFi. Switched the WiFi network.  At this point it’s clearly not isolated to our individual devices so xfinity needs to step up and fix their app.

Previously, I:

Tested the playback on both my Windows computer and on the TV; all worked perfectly.

Assured I was on the latest version of IOS on both the iPhone and iMac

Un-installed and re-installed the Xfinity app on each device

Checked the WiFi connectio

Restarted each device multiple times

Was on a chat session with Comcast / Xfinity for 2 1/2 hours.   Nothing was resolved.  

This problem has been occurring for many months on IOS!

This is something I have been experiencing for the past year off and on. Seems to have picked up again recently. Walked through loads of troubleshooting with support and not getting to a resolution. With the amount that we pay each month, a better experience on the primary way I access my DVR playback content would be much appreciated. Seems like there should be a knowledge article or some public resolution by now given the number of threads online for this topic.

Fix the playback on recordings for IPhone and other devices.  Only Xfinity has problems like these. It’s been months and nothing helps.

this is ridiculous

I only use Apple devices.  Had the issue today.  Been having the frozen DVR issue for months. Did anyone get any help from Xfinity?

Hey there, @user_30159b! Thanks for bringing your shared concerns to our public forum. I know how important it is to be able to access your favorite programming, whether at home or on the go, so I'd love to see what we can do to help! Have you already reviewed the Xfinity Stream App Minimum System Requirements to ensure your devices are up-to-date and meeting those requirements? If so, and to clarify, are you only having issues with playback of DVR recordings via the Stream app on your Apple devices (rather than live TV or purchases/rentals)?

@user_30159b​ I was having this same issue occasionally up until last week. Now I have video, but the audio cuts out on my Apple devices partway through watching on my devices. Everything is fine on DVR, but no sound on mobile devices. 

It's beyond aggravating.

Hi @Beckah were you able to click on the link XfinitySara left on her last response. Have you already reviewed the Xfinity Stream App Minimum System Requirements to ensure your devices are up-to-date and meeting those requirements? If so, and to clarify, are you only having issues with playback of DVR recordings via the Stream app on your Apple devices (rather than live TV or purchases/rentals)?
