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 .
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 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!
channels do not show up in guide. just get a blank white screen withe stars on the right in a grey highlight area. same issue with other xfinity app also. android 4.2
It was great a week ago. I used it to set my DVR multiple times per week when away from the house. Comcast took that feature out, so now it's a pile of garbage, and worthless. I'm paying a boatload of money every month to stay with Comcast...and this is what I get. Maybe it's time to move on.
Useless now that I can't set DVR recordings. The old x1 remote app was way better and this version already didn't have the features I want in a phone remote before doing this. Uninstalling this junk.
Improved messaging for an error and minor copy updates.
