Default Sort Recordings Alphabetically

Is there a way to set the default sort value for recordings to be A-Z?  It always reverts to most recent.

 

Thanks

no it resets after 90 minutes of not touching the menu system.

 

if you have a smart phone there is an app "xfinity TV Remote" that has a DVR manager that allow you to touch and get immediate lists in time/date order. It is fast and scrollable and very readable.

Does Comcast have any plans to change this?  Us old people want to watch the oldest recording of a show first, NOT the most recent!  Plus, sorting alphabetically makes more sense if you record a lot of series.

It seems Comcast never tells us of any plans for changes.  We hear about them when they happen.

This is NOT a solution. I am look for a solution that will work with the Comcast Remote . My previous provider (AT&T U-VERSE) had this feature but they are not servicing our new home.

to sort recording titles alphabetically, on the remote press Xfinity >> Saved >> Recordings >> press Down then Up >> select A-Z (or using voice remote say recordings then down/up button presses.

This provides only a temporary solution. The next time you access the list of recorded shows after doing this the recorded shows will be sorted again by most recently recorded. Is there any way to set the sort option to "alphabetical" and have it stay that way until you reset it to most recent?
