“Watch on TV” on Comcast Xfinity TV Listings stop working? Try this:

Comcast Xfinity’s “Watch on TV” feature stopped working for me on Wednesday. After an email exchange that didn’t get very far, I was able to remedy it myself on my PC. Here’s how:

  1. (Assuming you’re already signed into Xfinity), go to http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/mytv/cable-boxes
  2. Set all radio buttons in the TV Control column to Off:
    Mytv_settings_2011-06-24_15-18-30
  3. Click SAVE SETTINGS
  4. When the page reloads, set all radio buttons in the TV Control column to On
  5. Click SAVE SETTINGS
  6. To confirm that TV Control is working again, click SHOW NAME ON TV. The TV name should show up on the corresponding TV as it did when you first set the feature up

And that should be it. Thanks to @ComcastMelissa & @ComcastMichael for their quick responses on Twitter when I reported this issue.
