Can I program this to record when I am not home?
Asked by: Gregory
I went ahead and ordered this FireTv Recast thing on the assumption that DVR technology has come a long way in the past 20 years. I will be returning this FireTv thing. There is no DVR scheduling option in my channel list. I was able to record tv shows if I happen to be watching it at the same time. Seems stupid. It sounds like I would need to purchase Alexa and a FireTV to get the basic DVR functionality. I still have a 17-year-old Panasonic DVR model DMR-EH75V that provides all the functionality I need for recording tv shows.
