Master Access Token

While remotely streaming a recorded tv episode from our Xfinity DVR a bunch if text appeared across the screen for about 5 seconds. It reads “master access token= &6uct@:...” and a further long alphanumeric string. What caused that and what does it mean? The text is actually on that one DVR recording. Viewing back and forth it is always there.

when streaming remotely, you are using the cloud based DVR server. the Home-based DVR is not involved at all. It sounds like something the broadcast channel/network generated and passed along.
