Support XFINITY TV X1: Manage the Priority of a Program


With the XFINITY on the X1 Entertainment Operating System, you can record up to 4 programs per X1 DVR in your home simultaneously and even watch another program - whether it is a pre-recorded show, a live program or an XFINITY On Demand program.

If there is a scheduling conflict, the recording with the highest priority is recorded. The recordings are prioritized as:

  • More recently scheduled one-time recordings have higher priority than less recently scheduled one-time recordings.
  • Less recently scheduled series recordings have higher priority than more recently scheduled series recording.
  • One-time recordings have higher priority than series recordings.
