Re: iGuide A30

Has anyone that has A30 actually tried this reported feature:
Ability to directly play a completed recording from the customers DVR through your XFINITY TV online account.

I'm mostly excited about A30 for this feature, but I haven't seen anyone actually comment on using it (making me wonder if it's really included)

they told me that it is not initially turned on there website would have to be partly rewritten and they dont have the servers setup at the capacity to the customers who are going to get A30. they will first get the servers up and running and tested before they turn on the feature on the website

This is not true. The feature enables you to use your XFINITY TV online account to start a DVR recording on your TV just like you can change a channel. You will NOT be able to watch DVR recordings anywhere but on your TV.

thnex you don't have a source for your info like I do. your true that you can start watching a recording on your tv by selecting it online. But in the future they will enable the feature that is in A30 that will let you watch certain programs will be uploaded to Comcast servers much like the dvr info is uploaded to the Comcast servers, so you can watch it on your computer or tablet

Yes, that sounds right based on what I have read...

Quick to make judgement without having a clue how I get my information.

I don't think what you described is related to the A30 guide though; what you described sounds like an update to the XFINITY TV app...

there was an update that people have said that they already recieved this feature which is wrong. the feature you recieved is to watch a record on the tv by selecting it online. in A30 you would have the ability to watch it online through xfinitytv.comcast.net and the xfinity tv app natively.

OK so I can watch my recording on saturday night live FROM my DVR 10 miles away while I am on lunch at work on my android cell phone?

Not true, I have had the a30 guide (Springfield, MA area) for a while and cannot watch my recorded shows online or with the mobile app.

I can use the online system to start watching a recorded show on my TV.

I don't see how you will be able to watch recorded shows on your computer or mobile device UNLESS your content is recorded on a server somewhere or they can use a VPN.

That would be awesome.

I did read about trademark application for the term DOWNLOAD2GO that may possibly be for customers to be able to download on demand or DVR content via a mobile app to watch (in addition or instead of live streaming) but that is the app and probably not triggered by or related to the A30 guide...

they have not enabled the feature yet on there servers and website and updated there app. when more people get A30 they will turn it on. they dont have the capacity yet to enable that feature. as for mikedz4 they are uploaded to a server and tagged as yours like it is now for the info in the my DVR feature online

so comcast is moving our recordings to "the cloud" in order for us to watch them anywhere?
