Recording from online?
« on: September 05, 2019, 12:20:17 AM »
Is there any way to record shows from the online stream? I have directv and don't have time to watch everything live.

I'm probably going to regret jumping in this foxhole, but I thought DVR was pretty much standard with DirecTV these days.

Except that directv doesn't have BUZZR yet. Otherwise it'd be easy:) GSN, yes

If you can get DirecTV to send you a Local Channel Connector kit (which they'll generally send out only if you currently have a local station pulled due to a contract dispute, and which requires an HR44 or HR54 model DVR), and you can get a Buzzr affiliate over-the-air at your location... then this is what Buzzr looks like on DirecTV.

No contract disputes here, sadly. At least I tried. Thanks for the info though! I like Pluto and all...the DVR thing is just beyond my  technological scope. I have to ask my aunt or dad to hook stuff up!

Hey all, bumping this thread with a service I found called FitzyTV. Was digging deeper for a service because with this 9/30 schedule change, Buzzr will have some new stuff I'd love to watch but I need to DVR it.

https://fitzytv.com/ (found via a review at TechHive https://www.techhive.com/article/3405540/fitzytv-review.html)

I'm not sure of the overall point of the app...I downloaded it to a spare Android phone, and it syncs with my existing TV subscriptions to enable some sort of Cloud DVR functionality.

The killer feature here is that they have Buzzr as a channel on the app, and you can pay them $5/mo to get 50 DVR hours, and it seems to allow you to record Buzzr.

I downloaded it but haven't had much of a chance to test - wanted to alert the group, because I haven't seen it mentioned here before. If you try it, please provide a review, and I'll do the same once I've given it some paces.

I look forward to hearing how this works out for you.  I am in the same boat, and would like to have a recording option before 9/30.

I canít figure out why BUZZR is on Dish, but not DirecTV
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

AT&T probably wants too much money to carry the channel.

Probably doesn't help matters that AT&T owns a minority stake in GSN.

So for fun, I decided to give this a trial run.  One issue I have run into is that there currently isnít a way to start your recording a few minutes early, and run it over.  As we all know, Buzzr runs a few minutes ahead of schedule.  I emailed support and they are now aware of this and will add a feature request to modify the start times of recordings.  Not sure when that will happen, but for now you will have to record the program before and after the one you intended to record to be able to get everything.

Thank you both for this info. Iíve been reading a bit about Fitzy, but I was thinking it was mainly a DVR for subscription-ish services without built-in DVR capability, such as Locast.

Am I understanding you correctly that it actually has some channels within the appóBUZZR being one of themóand that you can DVR it even if youíre in a market without an OTA BUZZR station? (If so, thatís awesome.)

There are about 21 different channels, including Buzzr.  So yes, you can DVR it without an OTA station.
