Xr15 remote.

I used to have xfinity a couple years ago. Back then you were able to swap between dvr tuners, so you could pause show “A” switch to show “B” then switch back to show “A” and pick up where you paused it. I believe the button was called swap. I Recently returned to xfinity and on the new remote they gave me I know longer see that button. I am wondering if any one know if this “swap is still possible.

X1 boxes never had that function. You could swap using the last button but it wouldn’t pause live tv. I don’t recall Legacy boxes having that ability either

I know the box I had some time around 2016-2017. Had that option. The remote had a voice feature so it couldn’t have been to long ago

You could pause recordings but not live tv when you switch channels/tuners

You may be correct. Do you still have the ability to switch tuners between two live tv shows? (Neither recorded)

i hit record on one channel then go to second channel and hit record. start watching first one. use the menu to play the other one. then use last to switch between the two recordings.

Re: Xr15 remote.

On my TiVo, I could pause  a channel, switch to another channel, then go back to the first channel and pick up where I paused.  I watched two morning shows that way.  I can't figure out how to do that with my Xfinity box and a XR15 remote and I'm not happy.

X1 isn’t TiVo, it doesn’t work that way

Re: Xr15 remote.

adding... you can simulate that feature. press record on the first chan then same on 2nd channel.  begin playing first recording then start playing 2nd recording (both in progress). then use last button to toggle between them. this will work until one/both programs end.
