For anyone looking for a solution to DVR Buzzr and you can't receive it OTA or by other easy means, Sling seems to be a best bet at the moment. I have used it for a week now with no issues, recording Classic and Regular Concentration, and some other shows. I'm going to make the most of their "free two weeks" offer, then subscribe to a package later this month, mainly to expand the DVR from the free 10 hour option to the bigger 50 hour option.

FWIW, I think the Sling interface is garbage compared to YouTube TV, but it works and it's great to have the DVR option for Buzzr.

I'm bumping this old thread to spread awareness of something. Because all the previous talk was about making your own DVR recordings, I don't know if it was true two years ago, or if it's been added since then, but essentially all of Buzzr's programming is available on demand for about three days after it airs. It's particularly helpful a) if you're like me, and only watch Buzzr digitally, and because b) if a show doesn't fit perfectly into a 30-minute time slot, like many shows, Sling continues playing past the hour or half-hour mark automatically.

Is it possible to capture those streams?

Um, asking for a friend.

Because I would never do such a thing.

Yes but the method is complex and forever changing because they're DRM protected.

Where the stream is not? Fair enough. Thank you sir. :)
