Limit on the number of Episodes that can be recorded

I am noticing that once the total number of episodes recorded on my DVR of a program reaches 30 - 32 the oldest episode is being deleted. Is there any way to change this to extend the number of episodes I can maintain.

Local channel pixilation

We have one local channel that has constant pixilation happening. No other channels from DirectTV Streaming does this. We’ve unplugged and rebooted our Wi-Fi, Roku and reloaded the app. Is this an issue from our local station?

Android TV app

I don’t see it anywhere else on here, but there is an app for DTVS in the Google Play store now on my Shield. Maybe the articles detailing its absence could be updated. https://www.directv.com/insider/directv-stream-on-google-tv-and-other-android-tv-devices/
