sideloaded the settings.apk and then connected my Mac bluetooth mouse to it. I can navigate through the live channels with the mouse and play my dvr'd material, as well as on demand.
Just to add to this:
I was struggling with this as I just purchased the firetv stick and I have an iPhone.
After sideloading the Xfinity TV app and settings.apk., this now works perfectly for me: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BX0YKX4
if you hold down the right mouse stick and use the trackpad, it scrolls just like the native android app is supposed to.
Yes, it's a $20 solution, but the keyboard has many uses. If there is ONE caveat, the trackpad area is small, so it can take multiple swipes to navigate the guide.
I don't notice a terrible degradation in video quality. Sure, it's not as good as the real HD box we have in our living room, but certainly good enough (really good) quality for a spare room.
