How to Record Comcast on Demand

By Candice Abrams

Recording your Comcast On Demand programs gives you the ability to view them at a time that works for you. If you do not have time to sit and watch television, you may want to consider adding Digital Video Recorder (DVR) to your current plan. For a small fee, you can record a television show or movie when you are not home to watch. The process of setting it up and recording your programs is relatively simple.

Step 1

Contact Comcast and order DVR. You can add DVR to your current plan or package. Rates vary on your plan or package. Once you order DVR, you can start using it right away.

Step 2

Press "MY DVR" on your remote. The DVR menu will appear. You can view recordings, play them, create manual records or record from your listings.

Step 3

Press the "1" button to access Comcast On Demand. Navigate through the menu to select the movies or shows you want. Press the "Play" button to play the show or movie.

Step 4

Press the red button in the center of the remote to begin recording. This instantly records the program from the beginning to the ending.

Step 5

Press the "MY DVR" button. Navigate down to "Watch Programs." The list of recorded programs will appear in this submenu. Use the navigational buttons to choose your recorded program and to watch it.
