When you're on your home network, use the xf streaming website - https://tv.xfinity.com/listings

 

In the listings, find the show you want to record, click on it, then click on record. Will then get box with record options.

adding... you can also use the smart device apps Xfinity Stream TV or the Xfinity TV Remote app.

Not using a laptop as OP questioned - "from my laptop"

many customers may not be familiar with the smart device apps and how they can access the same task to set a program to record remotely.

Thats true, but the way you wrote it sounds like you're saying you can use the smart device apps on a laptop.

agree. It would have been better to add 'if you have a smart device.. ' or similar. good catch!

Re: set recording remotely

How do you set a program to record online if the "Record" option is not an available option on the screen? I am on my computer and I am trying to set a show to record tomorrow on my DVR (so I am not at home). But, when I search and find the program, there is no option to record.
