Thanks for the info. When I am away from home, can I manage my DVR? Watch On Demand? Sorry I'm so far behind the times, but I'm trying to catch up.

I think with X1, you can use Xfinity Stream to set a recording, which will be a 'cloud' recording you can view on an X1 box or other device. If you don't have X1, any form of remote recording ability is not available due to a lawsuit from Rovi, which has several patents.

If you have Instant tv there is recording access online, but if you have X1 boxes you can’t. You still have access to the dvr recordings and On Demand and Live TV through the Stream app
