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

There's a whole thread about it here: http://www.gameshowforum.org/index.php/topic,30972.0.html

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.
