DVR recording in the cloud

I have moved on from a DVR (machine) to recording into the cloud. But one question comes up ... is it possible to record just one show? Every time I press record, the only option is to record "all" or "new" of the series. I have not seen the option to record only 1 show.

Re: DVR recording in the cloud

Are you trying to record standard Spectrum cable network programming, on-demand channels, or 3rd party streaming using an app on your Apple TV or phone?  Each of these types is regulated differently by the individual programming providers for each channel.

Re: DVR recording in the cloud

I start by accessing the Spectrum guide. I find a show I want to record. I click on it to the information page where I find the record button. I click on it and am told I can record a series ( either "all" or "new")

Spectrum may be following what the other streaming live tv services do.  I have Youtube TV with cloud DVR and cannot set it to record single episodes.

Good morning.

 

I do see that it gives the option to record series. Once you set that up and go to the DVR portion of the site you should see three dots. if you click on that you should get a number of ways you can alter the settings.

Re: DVR recording in the cloud

I was considering dropping my Spectrum DVR receivers to save money and try out the cloud DVR service via the Spectrum App  on Roku.   I was wondering if you would be able to pause and rewind live TV if  you are not recording the program.   Based on  this post, it sounds like that is not possible?  Can you record the show after it starts, rewind, pause etc. then delete it? 

Tryin to determine what I'll be losing if I switch.
