Xfinity Stream

No longer tells the percent of room available for recordings.  How will I know?

Re: Xfinity Stream

Thanks for responding, but as of yesterday, the web stream no longer shows the percentage of space that is used up by recordings.  Because the web stream percentage is always much larger than the one displayed via the television/DVR, it is important to know.

I agree. overnight I lost the percentage on the web streaming page too. Comcast said in a post that it would only be available on the web site and that was a few months ago when they removed it from the smart device stream app.

Re: Xfinity Stream

As a workaround, I was quickly able to add up the total hours of recordings saved on the app. Divide by 60 (which is the max hours of recordings allowed on app) and you have your percentage.

Of course, moving forward with manual tallying as recordings are added and deleted will be a complete & utter pain.

I’m so annoyed with this unannounced change to a feature I rely on daily.
I hope that it is a temporary mistake that will be fixed. But based on Comcast’s track record with such things, it’s probably a permanent change!

Yes, this change is a serious annoyance to customers.  Why would Xfinity make this change?  The rest of the screen is the same.  Either it's a bug or they did it deliberately.  If it was deliberate, why go to the effort for something like this?  Doesn't it involve code changes?  I'm baffled and exasperated.
