My good friend Dave Zatz has uncovered evidence that Comcast’s remote scheduling feature for Motorola DVRs may be near release. A new page has appeared on the Comcast site introducing myDVR Manager. Using my own Comcast account, I tried to activate my DVR for the service, but unfortunately it’s not up and running yet. Other Comcast subscribers report the same.
Multichannel News heard back in the spring that Comcast would have remote scheduling this year, and at least one insider I know claims the feature is one its way very soon. The future of the DVR may still be uncertain, but remote scheduling appears to be headed toward the standard-feature list.
