Roku App not showing DVR options

Post by cboger » Sat Mar 07, 2020 9:54 am

I have set up my DVR on a Windows 10 machine. I have 2 roku ULTRAs. My iphone app shows live TV, record, and DVR options. The Rokus only show Live TV channels...

What version of dvr as it needs the latest release(presumably haven't heard of reports about it yet), or previous beta (where such made its debut)

I'm not sure how I can tell. It's not clear to me what actually got installed. It said I needed to install something for the DVR, but what it installed looked just like the regular software.

The only version I know that works is the older beta. As I said, I have not seen any reports of such working or not working with the latest release and it is "possible" the roku "app" checks for that specific version rather than anything newer but I doubt that as I think I would have seen such posts of t not working by now.

What do you mean by "DVR Options" and has the engine recorded anything yet as it is my understanding that the roku "app" is playback only.

Yes, you are correct they just sent me a note to that effect. Pretty disappointing. Do you know if it is fully functional on other streaming devices?

Hi,

Playback of DVR recordings works on Roku... what problem are you seeing?

Playback of recordings works on Roku but not scheduling of new ones. Scheduling is available on any other device that the HDHomeRun app runs on (Android phone/tablet/TV/Fire TV, iOS, Windows 10, Mac, Xbox One).
