This was one of the best features of the app. A person can no longer set recordings when traveling or otherwise away from the service location.
Satellite or internet companies may be the answer. This app has the potential for being a real value added perk for Xfinity and my main wish is that Comcast invest the money in this app to bring it to full functionality.
It needs to have all the functionality of the X1 Remote with a full set of tools to manage program guides and schedules.
The app is about half way there and is screaming for greater investment.
I would rather use something like this than any of the on-screen guides. One feature I would really like to have is the ability to construct my own channel lineup.
Right now I have more than channels but my actual viewing is typically a list of about 50 channels.
I would like to have the ability to put together my own list of channels that displays only the channels I typically watch and be able to group and order the channels the way I want them displayed in a guide.
This feature would be more important to me than the ability to "jump" in the channel listings. Jump is important now because there are so many channels I don't watch cluttering up my display.
Update v3. The old pull out tab was great. Now, with the star always showing, as I move through the listings I frequently end up unmarking the station as a favorite.
Worst of all is xfinity customer service.
How about the constant glitches in my service. How about repair technicians who don't show up, which had happened to me 5 different times after waiting all day. How about the cable line that is running through my yard for 2 months now and the guy who buries the line hasn't showed up yet.
I could go on and on because I'm only scratching the surface. Xfinity is garbage not worthy of garbage and so are their employees.
Beware if you think of signing up for this service or leaving your current provider. The WiFi is very fast too. The xfinity tv remote app WAS really good, right up until you can no longer record your programs away from home.
