Stream App vs TV Remote App - 2 Quick Questions?
I have a Premiere Pro Triple Play which includes Cloud DVR and 1 Gig HSI. Recently also started using the Xfinity Stream App (from the Amazon App Store) on a Fire HD 8 (2018) Tablet over the last 2 months w/o any issues via home wifi. I can watch HD programming live plus 'schedule/record/watch/or download recordings & return' Cloud DVR programming w/o any issues on that new Amazon Tablet.
Questions: Does the 'separate' Xfinity TV Remote App require a Mobile Device to have a built-in IR Transmitter (which my Fire Tablet lacks) to be supported by the TV Remote App? If so, might this explain why there is no official Xfinity TV Remote App available at the Amazon App Store?
Note that I can presently use my Windows desktop PC with Firefox (thru the Xfinity Stream Portal) to schedule and record programming on the Cloud DVR, just like with the Fire Tablet. However, there seems to be no way to currently communticate with my legacy DCX3400M DVR thru the PC Portal like we could several years ago .... nor thru the new Fire Tablet.
Any expert clarifications here would be much appreciated ... Thanks.
