Is it possible while logged into the DVR Manager on my PC to be able to schedule shows on our X1 DVR?  If it is there, I don't see it.

 

Additionally, I would like to be able to record a channel from the DVR Manager, ie. Channel 702 from 6pm to 10pm.  The latter can be done with the X1 Guide.


short answer is no. see page one of this mega thread. the first post has comcast's current answer/guide.

Can not record from mobile device nor computer

Comast removed the option to set recording with mobile and computer devices. This has been extremely frustration. I watch most of my programming AWAY from the TV. At work, I may remember to record a game that I am missing, but I can't. I can't pause live tv on my computer like I can on the TV. What is up with that? More people are watching content away from the TV, yet Comcast is going backwards. The option to set up recordings was available last year. I recalled using it all the time, but now, that option is not available.

 

COMCAST, Please bring back the ability to set recording on mobile devices.

Lost ability to set recording from Stream ios app

A little while back, I was able to set a single or series recording from the stream app. That functionality has seems to disappear.  Can it be restored or can it be done in another app?

recording tv show

I used to be able to set up tv recordings from my computer when I was away from home. Now when I go to do that I cannot find the record button to set the recording when I go through the TV lineup. I want to record the new TV show The Terror on AMC (as a series) and I am not able to. I am not at home and want to set up the recording now so I don't forget to. It was very easy to do previously.

How can you prioritize scheduled recordings online instead of the DVR.

Setting them on the DVR is not customer friendly and takes forever

Re: Can't set recordings from stream app

Well all this did was convince me never to get TiVo which is the same as Rivo. Rivo bought TiVo.

Re: Mobile access to Xfinity box

Because TiVo took Comcast to court saying that Comcast was illegally using the technology to record programs from their app. TiVo claimed they have the patent and nobody else can use it. The courts agreed.

Record Button Disappeared?

Until recently, I could record TV programs from my PC and then play them back later on my TV. Now that "Record" button is gone. When I visited my local Xfinity location, they knew of the change but couldn't explain why the change was made - they were given no warning either. What's up?

I believe there is a lawsuit over the technology, and the feature has been missing for months.

Verizon and others are paying TiVo/Rovi for the right to offer the feature. Comcast refused to pay and decided to appeal the ruling.

 

Obviously, this appeal, and the related infringement suit filed by TiVo in January, could be decided in either direction. But I will say this: I had some knowledge of the attorneys who wrote the TiVo patents, and while Comcast has a lot more money, I would place my bets on TiVo. Again: anything could happen, but my money is on TiVo.

 

Now if Comcast loses, what do you think will happen? Will they cave, pay up, and restore the feature? I don't know anything specific about Comcast's management, but their behavior throughout their history suggests that they won't pay, and that Comcast customers will never see this feature again.

 

So there you have it: one moderately-informed person's personal opinion based on no direct knowledge. I'd give my prediction about a 65% chance of coming to pass (i.e., 2 out of 3 odds). It's worth what you paid for it, right?

Re: Stream Beta and Recording

WELL I FOUND OUT THE ANSWER TO MY OWN QUESTION! IN CASE OTHERS ARE WONDERING! APPARENTLY WHEN THIS SERVICE WAS FIRST BROUGHT OUT, ONE COULD  RECORD IN THE CLOUD FROM THE STREAMING SERVICE, BUT COMCAST HAD TO PULL IT FROM THE SERVICE AS THERE WAS SOME LEGAL ISSUE AS TO THE RIGHTS TO THAT FEATURE! THIS WILL  BE I SUSPECT A GAME CHANGER FOR MANY. IF THIS IS YOUR DEVICE LETS SAY IN YOUR BEDROOM, AND THE DVR BOX IS DOWNSTAIRS IN THE LIVING ROOM, THAT WOULD MEAN THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO DOWNSTAIRS( OR IN THE OTHER ROOM) TO RECORD A PARTICULAR SHOW? THATS A REAL PAIN!

Re: Can't set recordings from stream app

Did Directv & DISH also lose this capability? I have been a customer of both those companies and remote DVR recording was an option offered by both.
