It's a good app, but it's far too easy to accidentally deselect a favorite channel while scrolling through the listing. You then have to go back to the full list to reselect it. I suggest a box that asks if you really want to deselect the favorite. Since favorites don't frequently change this shouldn't be a problem for most people.
I used this app to set up recordings on my DVR. It only sometimes worked, but was nice when it did. Now it seems like this feature has been removed?!? It is pretty much the only reason for having this app! What the heck. Why, oh why, would you purposely remove this!
I used to like this app last year when I could set the DVR remotely. Without the ability to set the DVR, what is it really? I can't even turn on the TV from the same room. Not the TV, not the cable box; nothing. It is however an excellent TV Guide. They should call it the TV Guide app instead of the remote control app...as it controls "nothing" remotely. -w.
I enjoy the ability to change the channel on my set top box however I really miss the DVR record function. Apparently this feature has temporarily been removed due to a court ruling in a dispute with TiVo. Being able to set a recording remotely was the main reason I downloaded this app. No eta on if or when the feature will be restored.
Update made the app useless. The whole point of TV Remote is the ability to record programs while away from home. Let's see how long it takes these geniuses to figure out they screwed up the main feature of the app.
I have several remotes, I dont need my phone to change channels. I needed this app for setting recordings, which has been taken away. Just another thing Comcast wants to control. Can't wait for another cable company to come to my town. TERRIBLE service and customer support .
