Sorry to this effort being discontinued. The Beta has now expired.

Good beginnings don't always result in an adequate final result.

Very disappointed for iOS and tvOS development in utilizing SD engine.

InstaTV is still available in iOS/tvOS, however no new developments in >60 days. For me, the current state is not adequate. YMMV...

Project is still active (No new beta version doesn't mean the project is dead). There is the released version in AppStore.

InstaTV for AppleTV with DVR Support is definitely coming.

Back in June/July, SD added ability to store/view/play recordings from multiple locations.

Nickk added an experimental method to utilize same from multiple NAS'. viewtopic.php?f=119&t=36909&p=223791&hi ... th#p223791

Recently, I did upgrade record engine to latest to continue beta testing for InstaTV. As the newest engine allowed me to utilize above, I added.

However, although SD UI reflects recordings from the 2 separate NAS', InstaTV lists only 1 of the 2 NAS' recordings.

Any chance you could update Beta to list "ALL"?
Any progress on adding this feature?

DVR support on AppleTV will be available late January or early Feb.

Initial update will support playback only. For scheduling, use the iOS app on phone/tablet (Scheduling feature is free) . I think that's more intuitive and faster.
