you are correct, but rememer if you do that you have to watch one of those shows or watch something previously recorded if your going to watch that tv at that time. you cannot tape two shows and watch a third unless its something you previously recorded

Will comcast EVER update this? It is rediculous to have to watch one of the two shows you want to record. Tonight I wanted to record 2 shows and watch something else that I also wanted to see (because you cannot record more than 2) But I could not do that because you actually have to have one on. So I had to turn my TV off and watch cartoons with my daughter on the small kitchen TV, and I missed the show I wanted to watch. Other cable companies can record multiple shows at the same time with out watching them. ALSO other cable companies can record a show in one room and watch it in another. I am not sure if Comcast has this but it would be nice too. Does anyone know if Comcast will update their services? Thanks!

comast dvr's like most have two tuners so you can only record two things, you would need a third tuner to record 2 and watch a third. Comast does have multi-room dvr, but that is only in the motorola box market, if you have a moto box you can get that, or you can get another box for another tv, you can also probably watch the show you missed on demand sometime today or tomorrow.

Comcast does indeed have a "whole house DVR" which allows you to record in one room and watch in another - but you have to pay more for it and it is more expensive.
As far as I know, they do not offer the capability to record 2 shows and watch a third.

They still have not addressed this absurd situation. I want to record two shows and watch a third, but I cant Im forced to watch one of the two I want to record or only record one. The worst sitution ever that still has not been corrected. Horrid service dudes. Not a happy customer. All the shows I like are on Sunday or Monday and I want to be able to record as many as I like and watch whatever I choose to watch.

I share your grief and know the pain, dwolfett. I'm in the same boat on Sundays and Mondays.. It's like the planning of the invasion of Normandy. Just kidding.
Just checking which shows are available in OnDemand, is a hassle, because the majority of the shows do not show the Series or Episode or Original date.
Maybe one of these days........ just dreaming.... Guess we could all switch to Direct TV..

YES, COMCAST XFINITY SUCKS! You would think they'd come up with a BETTER recording system! You can ONLY record 2 shows but have to WATCH one of them or it won't record.
On ATT I used to record FOUR shows at once! I'm stuck with Comcast now in my new building and wish I could go back to ATT! ! !

Tonight I recorded and WATCHED American Idol on from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. on FOX. I also recorded Elementary which was on from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on CBS. When Idol had ended, I went to the recorded Elementary, but the show started in the middle. The first hour was not there!! So is there something new we should know besides watching/recording one channel until it is over, then watching the other recorded show afterwards?
