Might of fact you do not even need the remote app really, but its harder to navigate. You have to count your clicks to know where the curser is at but it does work with the fire tv remote

I downloaded the apk from Google Play and I couldn't get live tv to play. The video just buffers over and over and over. AS a matter of fact I tried the direct tv app as well and that does the same thing just buffers. The one I have is Xfinity TV go 2.2.0.004 what version do you have working? this one requires I am on wifi. By the way I am not rooted

thanks

I'm wondering if anyone has any quality issues compared to watching it on a browser like Chrome.

You can see the resolution switching as it detects speed (low to better to HD like Netflix). No quality issues for me. Nice clear HD.

Any folks out there have x1 cloud???

I have had great success in watching live channels and recordings by miracasting my tablet or phone to the firetv stick. You can have up to 5 simultaneous devices streaming to your main box.

I wish I had more firetv sticks because I could essentially get rid of all 3 of my x1 access boxes!

Also when traveling I can miracast my phone to my firetv stick and watch ANY of my dvr cloud recordings! which is super cool! Plus theres all the on demand content right there in the same app.

Anyone sideloaded this directly? I'd hate to travel with a full size keyboard though.

And also, which I think is strange, For nearly 2 years all we have been told is that x1 cloud is just cloud storage for your dvr and that you can only access these recordings in home. and that basically its only good for people who travel without unlimited data because they can check the recording out and download to their phone or tablet. but i cannot be viewed anywhere else if its checked out. not sure if u can delete from tablet and recover on box?

anyway one day out of nowhere, didnt have to accept terms and conditions anywhere, I started seeing little house logos on my recordings saying they were available in home only. then i downloaded xfinity TV to my phone (not tv go) and it worked!!

Then it got even better when I ran the app from a hotel just to schedule a few things, and out of nowhere a recording on my dvr just started playing! lol. right when i was gonna buy a slingbox too. life is good!

so ya, TLDR you may want to buy a few firetvs or sticks if you can sideload the Xfinity TV (NOT TV GO) app and get rid of all of your access boxes!!! could save up to $400-$600/yr!
