Hardware Management Apps - Future

Post by GetMatt » Tue Jul 02, 2019 10:39 am

I'm not sure if this is something you guys have discussed internally, but mobile apps to manage hardware and DVR would be very nice. Especially if you could do it remotely. Some of the features could be:
  • Update Firmware
  • Update Software
  • Manage Recordings
  • View Status (tuners, DVR storage, etc.)

No disagreement here. Though for what it's worth, you can manage your recordings from the existing mobile apps right now. Are you asking for something that's more like a traditional mobile app with a vertical display to manage recordings?

edit: Also, fyi, I've moved this thread to Future Product Discussion.

I'm assuming OP means manage recordings outside of the home network. I wholeheartedly, agree.

Yes I do mean a traditional vertical app that provides remote management features. I’m not sure what it will take on your end, but since DVR accounts are attached to store logins I would assume it wouldn’t be too crazy difficult to use that login to manage recordings and see status remotely.
