Record Channel 971 How-To

Recording programs on Riderwood TV, Channel 971, is a challenge. To overcome this, here’s a guide that may help some residents. Caution: These instructions apply to the Xfinity DVR and ONLY to the Xfinity XR11 remote. They might be helpful for users of other remotes and DVRs. YMMV, but one resident reports that these instructions work with his, similar, X15 remote.

Referring to the image at right, below:

  • The red arrows and text designate which buttons to use on the remote to achieve a desired action.
  • Use the OKAY and arrow keys to setup a recording. In the following instructions,
  •  ↑  means touch the UP Arrow button,
  •  ← means touch the Left Arrow button, etc.
  •  OKAY means touch the center, OKAY button.
