MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Comcast customers have lost a popular feature of its cable service.

Customers can no longer set their DVRs through the Xfinity TV Remote app.

The reason, according to GeekWire, it that Comcast is responding to a patent ruling by the International Trade Commission.

Reuters reports Comcast lost a patent fight with Rovi Corp. – the maker of TiVo – a week ago.

The ruling now prohibits Comcast from importing and selling certain types of Rovi’s Xfinity X1 set-top boxes.

Comcast is appealing that ruling – but, at least for now, customers have no DVR access through their smartphones.

Now customers will simply see an option allowing them to watch the channel but not record it.
