I just came across this thread when trying to find out why I can no longer record from the beginning of a show when I hit the record button. I would like to add my "squeeky" frustration, as that was such a great feature, and I want it back! I am about ready to dump my X1 platform and go back to the old standard DVR, if it is even still available. I have so many times, been watching a live news broadcast, and want to show my wife something that was just on. If she can't come and watch it while it is still in the buffer, I have no way to save it for her. Comcast, PLEASE bring this feature back!!! It is one of the main reasons I got the DVR in the first place! Sure, on demand is great, but you can't watch the news, or many other programs on demand! Enough explaining why you can't bring it back, just DO IT!!!
