Comcast DVR 6208 Single Tuner Question  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just got the 6208 and had a couple quick questions.

1) I thought you could set it to record all times a program is on (ex. "Seinfeld") - like Season Pass on TiVo and it would record the show regardless of what/how many channels or times it is on. I think the 6208 only will allow me to record a show if it's on at the same time each day, or same time each week on same channel. Can anyone clarify? This is a major disappointment.

2) Search feature - I can only search titles, not by actor, keyword. If this is the case, how do they intend to compete with TiVo? I want to be able to search by keyword (ex. "Titantic") and have it automatically record any/all shows that have it come up in either the title or show description.

Thanks!

1) Get the 6412. The 6208 cannot do that. The 6412 with the i-Guide or Microsoft Guide can and it has dual tuners.

2) The Search is lousy and the same on both the 6208 and the 6412.
