Multichannel received word this spring that Comcast intended to bring remote web DVR scheduling to customers in 2009. And if www.comcast.com/mydvr is any indication, they’re nearly ready to pull the trigger. Not only does this “MyDVR” service appear to support Comcast’s stock (Motorola) DVR hardware, a variant may also launch for Comcast-issued TiVo units. I was tipped by Joe F. (thanks!), who found himself unable to link his account and reports that Comcast support couldn’t assist. So, it appears that the site isn’t quite ready for prime time. But it’s safe to say we’ve reached the point where one should expect the convenience of online scheduling as a standard DVR feature (see: Verizon FiOS TV, DirecTV, TiVo, DISH, AT&T, Moxi).
