Great work so far ! Love the new DVR support, was waiting for that for a long time !

One thing I noticed on the iOS app is that, on my iPhone 6S+, everything looks like I have the Zoomed (see there https://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-turn- ... -6-6-plus/) feature enabled on my iPhone but it's not and it's only in instaTV that I can see this behavior, other apps looks fine.

Can something be made to fix that ? It's not a major bugs but it makes the app looks bad on the 6S+ screen size..

Does the Apple TV app support DVR functionality?

If not, do you know when it will?

Thanks

DVR will definitely be supported on tvOS, however we don't have a date yet.

Suggest that you eliminate the Delete Recording "OK", as it is superfluous. No way to reverse at this point, as only option is to select "OK". Currently, it is just adding another unnecessary step.

Other option is to add a "cancel" option before actual deletion, so that it is truly a confirm step, then one could either "Cancel" the action prior to actual deletion or "OK" to confirm that deletion should occur.

which version of recording engine are you running ?

EDIT1: problem reproduced. New update will be available soon.

EDIT2: weird. I can't reproduce the problem anymore. Could you please retry?

Running an older version of recording engine, due to some continuing duplicate recording problems with last 3-4 versions from SD. I had to regress from current to prevent these newly introduced problems which have been outstanding for 2 months, without a requested "fix" from SD.

As I am in process of changing/testing from other providers, I will be glad to update to latest from SD in order to continue current testing of InstaTV. I thought I would be able to do so today, however, had some other priorities.

Tomorrow PM, I will be able to update, retest InstaTV and post results.

Sorry for any delay/problems.

I loaded SD latest Record Engine and voila all recordings appeared. Thank You

At first glance, # of recordings is not showing on top level page.

The drop down to all included episodes is very good. And the new added sort by Title is much appreciated.

To me, at first, it was a bit jarring to see Movies and TV series intermixed on the Title sort. You may want to consider a filter or separate listings.

Earlier today, a new movie recording was added to SD Engine. It completed and is available on SD's list of recordings, and is playable.

This new movie DID NOT add to InstaTV iOS Beta.

However, it did add to InstaTV iOS Production. BUT, when you press to play, the app crashes back to home screen on iPad.

And yes, I am now on latest SD version: 20160902beta3.

New series recordings are visible. So it appears to be just one-offs, like movies that aren't showing.

Another new movie was recorded and it showed up in InstaTV Beta, so Movies are in the listings. No problem, except the one.

The one movie that didn't show up in the Beta, but was in Production doesn't have a "Poster", but is represented by your generic tv logo. Could the no match be the reason for the absence in the Beta? It's weird....
