Thanks for all the answers so far, we do have the XR11 remotes and page up/down is jumping 5 minutes. Is there a way to change that to 30 seconds. I looked in menus for a bit but didn't see it. The voice search has been really handy as I have NO CLUE what my new channel numbers are.
Another silly question - is there a remote locator - button you push on the cable box that makes the remote beep?

Just switched from Dish + Comcast internet to a Double Play for what ends up being pretty big savings. Couple minor things I'm trying to sort out related to X1 interface.
Coming from Dish - I had 1 button to press to get to the DVR - now Xfinity - > Saved - > recordings
Is there a shortcut?
On the Dish remote - there was an easy skip forward/backwards button that was about 30 seconds at a time and could be pressed multiple times to jump a couple minutes, I see the "replay" button on the Xfinity remote, that just seems to jump back about 10 seconds but nothing beyond that.
What I think my biggest annoyance will be is the difference in the Dish anywhere app vs Xfinity Stream- Dish anywhere I can watch any channel I want and set DVR remotely. Was out this morning and tried to set dvr remotely to catch football game and lo and behold, THAT"S NOT A FEATURE bc apparently Comcast lost a lawsuit to TiVO a while back? Also, what's with the big chunk of my channels not being available for remote streaming? Dish I could stream any channel, is this something to do with it not actually using the tuners on Xfinity whereas with Dish it ties up a tuner when I'm streaming? REALLLLLY annoying. Proabably should have done a little homework, shame on me for assuming some of what I assumed to be basic features would be universal. Thanks for any insight.
