  1. This is not auto tune.

    What people expect when they say “auto tune” is to have the device (in this case) automatically switch to a particular program or channel at a given time.

    There is currently no way to really do this with xfinity. You can set the box to “remind” you that a program is going to start, and it will ask you if you want to go to that channel: but that reminder will remain on the screen for an unlimited amount of time until you give it an answer or cancel it. This also isn’t really autotune.
