Re: Cannot Play DVR Recordings on PC (Win10) while connected to TWC WiFi network...

If you want to watch DVR recordings (or really just access anything on the box remotely), you can get a Slingbox and hook it up to the DVR/set-top box. I think the original purpose of the Slingbox was simply to access all of the channels you get when away from home (as opposed to the limited selection available in the TV app), but I also use it when I'm at home if I want to watch DVR recordings on my phone or tablet.

Why not?  When you were Time-Warner I could watch recorded shows from my DVR on my computer.   Has that gone away now that you are Spectrum?   Seems like we should be getting a discount on our bill since features we used to have no longer work!

@donknight1 Watching programs recorded to your DVR online through the TWCTV and now Spectrum TV has never been an option. Those recordings are stored locally on the DVR and can not be accessed through our TV application.

 

Our Website and App do provide access to On Demand but do not provide access to view the recorded programs on your DVR.

Ok, so we know recorded programs can only be viewed on the DVR. DirecTV service allows recorded programs to be downloaded from the DVR to tablets and phones (while connected to home wi-fi) using their app. In addition, there’s a setting to automatically record and download programs as well. My question is, will Spectrum offer this service in the future…or are there no plans to implement this service? I’m a former DirecTV customer and recently moved to an apartment complex where satellite dishes aren’t allowed so I had no choice. To be honest…I really miss those features.

When I first downloaded the app, i was able to see each and every recorded show on my pc and iphone and could immediately watch it on that device. it was not on demand. So tell me why you no longer allow it? Please don't tell me it was never available. The app is now pretty much useless for watching any DVR recorded shows. So tell us why it's no longer an option?
