Why won’t my Comcast DVR stream to my iPad?

I have an Xfinity Comcast DVR and we are supposed to be able to stream to the iPad and it is not being recognized. My router is a Linksys e2000 and has mixed bandwidths operating right now.

    First you need to download the app for your idevice download it by clicking on the following link
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xfinity-tv-player/id552293383?mt=8
    after you have successfully installed the app you can stream videos

    View TV listings by selecting TV Listings at the bottom of the app.
    Browse XFINITY® On Demand programming by selecting On Demand at the bottom of the app.
    Search both TV listings and XFINITY On Demand by typing a title in the Search box at the top of the app.
    Turn your device into a remote control for your set top box.
    On an iPad, in the upper right of the app is a drop-down menu. Select the name of the set top box you want to control. This will be saved for your next session.
    On an iPhone/iPod touch, it’s in Settings. Select the name of the set top box you want to control in the drop-down menu. This will be saved for your next session.

      The DVR manager says it is not recognizing my device on my PC so I cannot use the iPad until it can recognize the device...it is the correct device as I checked with Comcast...
