I moved to Xfinity from DirecTV because DirecTV refused to secure Comcast Sports Northwest (for Trail Blazer basketball) and the PAC-12 Network. I now have these networks with Xfinity, but have run into a myriad of problems I didn't have with DirecTV. Slow response to the remote is one of them. Don't get me wrong, I had this problem with DirecTV, but only infrequently, and it lasted for a short time for each episode. I suggest to the Xfinity engineers to reverse engineer the DirecTV DVR and remote to get at least their level of performance.
