On Demand shows cutting off ending

Trying to snag a show in the on demand area, when it plays it cuts off the ending and moves onto the next episode. I am using firestick on smart Tv--not a tablet or phone. I have done this: Check for app updates in your app store. If an update is available, install it and restart your device.

When trying to play recordings from the Library, there is no sound. When watching live shows, the audio plays as it should. This is on a Samsung TV. The TV in the bedroom (not a Samsung) plays the recordings properly. Any ideas to correct the issue?

Can't Watch Program from Cloud DVR

I switched from U-Verse to DirecTV Stream a few months ago. I have the "20 Hours of Cloud DVR" option. With U-Verse, when a pay channel (like HBO, Showtime, etc.) had a "free preview" weekend, I could record a program on that channel and watch it later, even after the free preview ended. Now, with D

How do you extend the time on a recording.

I record my sports programs on DIRECTV STREAM but they run over the hour a lot of the time and I can’t figure out how to add a 30 minute or so extension on the recording when I set it up.

I was watching both NFL games today (recorded), and as I always do, I used the right arrow to advance to the next play. In the past, on the stream device, it would advance 15 seconds, which is what I want. However, today, it changed to 30 seconds, which I don’t want. This is actually why I started u

Sound occasionally drops out to a garbled sound. We can switch to a different channel and sound comes back correctly. We switch back to the original channel and sound is OK until the next time it drops. This happens about once per day. We had a similar problem with an older Samsung TV until the soun
