Search and Record Programs on Your Non-X1 DVR

Set your DVR so you never miss your favorite actor or director.

How to do it

For native/legacy DVR TV Boxes, you can use Search and Record on your DVR menu to record programs that meet your search criteria: actor, director, title, or keyword. Select the auto-record option from the results listing screen to record these programs as they show up in the guide.

For X1 DVRs, see instructions on using the search bar or the remote keypad for information on how to search for a title, network, person or sports team.

Search and Record is currently only available for your DVR. However, you can set and manage recordings with the XFINITY TV Remote app.
