I miss the old app. It's silly that you have have to click on the mic to access controls like pause, the number pad & arrows. To me the pull-down menu would be the logical place to find these pages of the app.
Amazing. After my two year old decided to play "I hide, mom seeks," with the remote, I proceeded to spend three hours searching EVERYWHERE! I sat down physically and mentally exhausted from my search, I'd say I was definitely feeling somewhere in between a margarita and a nap. Then I remembered this app. What a relief! Still have not found the remote, but at least he can watch his "blue's clues" while I finish my search. Thanks for this beautiful invention!
I can't access dvr upstairs,it defaults to the box downstairs where there are several remotes that only work on that dvr.comcast is far too expensive for these errors and mishaps. The old remote app was a better app.
For those who haven't figured it out, the app does have a remote control function. Click the blue microphone in the middle of the display and the the remote control and keypad are displayed. App comes in handy when you misplace your remote. Anyone using it as a replacement should consider ordering a new remote.
Loved the old X1 remote app, really dislike this new one. Biggest complaint is I can't EASILY switch from one STB to another. Really disappointed that the old app no longer works effectively forcing me to use a far inferior app. That's not my only complaint but I could tolerate the rest if I could easily switch boxes.
This app got me so frustrated. Although it has useful features. the user experience is horrible. The X1 remote app was much better. It was more intuitive and it was much easier to use. Here's what frustrates me about this app. 1. The listings page is good for finding what's currently showing but I can only see future showings 30 minutes out at a time. 2. Changing to a specific channel using a keypad remote is hard to find (its behind the blue microphone icon, which you would think is a voice control) 3. I can see the name of the tv on the keypad screen for my iving room but I still havent figured out how to change the remote to use it for my bedroom. Does anyone else know?
This dot release is designed to make the app more tolerant of unexpected data: namely, don't crash if grid listings go missing, and do show recording groups even when they contain empty recordings.
