Tap Into the Power of Your Xfinity DVR
When you sign up for Xfinity TV service, you also get the ability to record nearly unlimited hours of cable TV programming, ensuring that you never miss a show ever again. You can rewind, pause and fast forward content, enabling you to control exactly how you experience the content and how long it takes to watch it.
In short, the Xfinity DVR enables you to watch TV when and how you want. It really frees you up to enjoy cable TV entertainment on your terms.
Working late one night? No problem. Just record your favorite TV show or sports program and it will be waiting for you when you get back home. Going away on vacation? Again, that’s absolutely no problem. Your Comcast DVR enables you to record all your favorite programs in one, easy to access location.
Best of all, the Xfinity DVR from Comcast works with On Demand and pay-per-view (PPV) content, ensuring that you make the most of your Xfinity in-home entertainment. The Xfinity DVR is all about giving you the freedom to do the most with your stored programs and shows. Think of it as helping you to create an archive of valuable TV content!
What is the Xfinity DVR?
As you might already know, DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. This is a powerful device that lets you record any TV program and watch it at a later time. It also allows you to rewind and fast-forward TV programs, pause a show, or even create your own instant replays, and watch in slow motion. That’s really the magic of the DVR - you are free to watch TV on your own terms and according to your own schedule.
The DVR is really a way to time-shift the entertainment experience. In the old analog world, you needed to watch a program at a certain time and on a certain date. That’s no longer the case. Your favorite TV sitcom might air on a Monday night, but there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t watch it on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night.
Your favorite football team might play on a Sunday, but you can easily watch the game on a Monday afternoon as you prepare for Monday Night Football. With the TV listings from Xfinity, it’s always very easy to find exactly what you want to watch and record.
Unbelievable storage capacity
Where things get really exciting is when you consider how much storage capacity you get. You can choose between a regular DVR or an HD DVR. They both work the same way, but there’s a major difference in storage capacity.
The regular DVR gives you 80 GB of storage capacity, but the High Definition DVR gives you access to 500 GB of storage capacity. That’s enough storage for 300 hours of SD programming, or 60 hours of HD programming. Best of all, you can record one show while watching another.
So let’s do the math on that. Just how much is 60 hours of HD programming? Well, if you consider that an average football game is 3 hours, that’s 20 full games in full HD glory! If you consider that an average series has 12 new shows per season, that’s 5 whole seasons of content!
If you have multiple people in your household, you can immediately see why this is such a powerful feature. It means that there will never be a problem of what to watch at night or during the day - since you have the ability to record any content on Xfinity TV, it’s really just a matter of deciding which content you’re going to watch “live” and which content you’re going to time-shift to watch at a later date.
Binge-watch your favorite shows with your Xfinity DVR
You can start to see why people use the DVR to binge-watch their favorite show programs. For example, say that you’re a huge fan of “Game of Thrones.” If you’re getting HBO as part of your Xfinity cable TV package, you’d be able to record an entire season and watch it whenever you want. When you’re waiting for the new season to start, you’ll have access to previous seasons.
And here’s the really cool part - you’d be able to fast-forward to all the great scenes and share them with members of your family. The same thing is true for sports content. If you’re a baseball fan, you’d be able to record every game of a playoff series and relive your team’s trip to the World Series again and again! You could do instant replays of the game-winning hit, or show them to your friends in slow motion.
It’s easy to record an entire series. While in TV Listings, highlight the TV series you want to record, press the Record button on your Xfinity remote twice and select the Series Recording option. Or press the Info button, select the Record icon from the Program Information screen and select the Series Recording option.
And you’ll never have to worry about running out of space, since there’s just so much storage capacity with your Xfinity DVR. When you get the HD DVR and the full 500 GB of storage, you’re really opening up a whole new set of possibilities. Your DVR becomes a veritable library of the best content, accessible at any time.
Control your TV content like never before with enhanced DVR functionality
In order to get the full value of your Xfinity DVR, you really have to explore all the great functionality that’s part of controlling your in-home entertainment. This functionality includes:
- Instant Replay
- Skip Forward
- Skip Back
- My DVR
With Pause, you can instantly freeze the action. Press Play to resume the program. With Instant Replay, you can immediately repeat the last 15 seconds of a live program or recording by pressing the Instant Replay button until you arrive at the part you want to replay.
If you’ve ever been watching a movie and missed a line of dialogue, this is so cool. You don’t have to worry about pausing and rewinding to just the right point - the DVR does all the hard work for you.
When you Rewind or Fast Forward, you can use up to four different speeds to get you to exactly where you want to go. Press multiple times to increase speed. Press Play to resume at normal speed.
There are two related features that are just as useful. With Skip Forward or Skip Back, you can skip in five-minute intervals backward or forward to the point of the live broadcast.
Where you’ll be absolutely blown away by the power of your DVR is when you use the LIVE feature. This lets you skip forward to the live point of a program. Think about that for a moment: it means you can really time-shift your experience, alternating between events that have already happened and those that are going to happen.
Imagine watching a baseball game, going back to check out a few plays, and then Presto! Instantly being transported forward to the point of the live baseball action.
Finally, you can’t ignore the My DVR function, which displays the DVR Menu options. If you’re rapidly moving between programs and content, it’s important to have one home page where you can see exactly what’s happening. So think of your DVR Menu as a homepage for controlling all of your amazing DVR content.
Record any program easily and conveniently
There are two different ways to record a program with your DVR - you can record from TV Listings or you can record while watching live TV. When you record from TV Listings, just highlight the program you want to record and press the Record button on your Comcast remote. A red dot will appear next to the program title indicating that it's scheduled to record.
And if you want to record while watching TV, just press the Record button on your remote. You'll receive a recording notice on your screen. That will let you know that everything is being recorded, and you can just sit back and enjoy whatever you’re watching.
Watch any program or show recorded on your DVR
It’s so easy and convenient to watch your favorite shows and programs. On the DVR Menu screen, just press the My DVR button on your remote and select My Recordings. Then highlight a program and press the OK/Select button on the remote.
From there, all you have to do is select the Play button to begin. As soon as you hit Play, you’ll be transported away to the show or program of your choice.
And what if you want to watch two programs at one time? Well, your Xfinity DVR makes it so easy to swap between two programs.
Just press the Swap button to switch back and forth between the two tuners of your DVR so you can control the action of two programs. You can rewind what you have missed or fast-forward to skip ahead in the program you have paused.
The X1 DVR
There’s one more way to really transform your TV experience, and that’s by getting Xfinity X1. This new offering will completely change the way you experience TV. For example, X1 can search across live TV, On Demand and your DVR shows to find exactly what you want to watch. X1 will also make recommendations for you and help give you shortcuts to the very best content.
If you’re not already an Xfinity X1 customer, you’re about to be blown away by all the great storage functionality of the X1 DVR. Just as with the HD DVR, you get access to 500 GB of storage capacity. That’s enough to record up to 300 hours of SD content and 60 hours of HD content.
But here’s where things get really interesting - you can record up to 4 HD shows at the same time, and you can watch them from any room of your home. And what’s really amazing is that, in some cases, you can choose to have the latest episodes of top TV shows preloaded to your DVR. That makes things even easier for you. It means you don’t even have to go to the TV listings to find the shows you want - everything is done for you automatically.
Enjoy DVR content on the go
You can also choose options with Xfinity to have all of your DVR content available whenever you leave the home. This opens up even more opportunities, right? You can literally save an entire TV series on your DVR, and then take that TV series with you when you go on vacation. Or, if you travel frequently for business, just have your spouse or significant other record all the shows for you at home, and they will be available on your mobile device!
Xfinity continues to innovate, making it possible to record and watch content in more ways than ever before. The latest innovation is X1, which radically transforms the TV viewing experience. And there are plenty more ways that Xfinity is working on to make your content available anytime, anyplace and anywhere, such as Xfinity STREAM.
Some of the newest innovations involve the “cloud DVR” - a way to recreate the digital device without the device! You’ve probably heard all of your friends and neighbors talking about “the cloud.”
Well, now you’re going to have the same functionality. All of our favorite movies, shows and programs will live in “the cloud,” making them accessible from anywhere you go!
