DirecTV on Roku, online, or in app, want to record specific channel, date, time - not a show.
I'm in my free trial, thinking about switching from Xfinity. I *really* don't like the UI when compared to Xfinity.
Is there any way to do the following:
1) Record a specific channel from start time to end time (recording multiple shows or recording a sporting event for 90-minutes past the end to catch overtime.)
2) I'm recording a sporting event, but the guide doesn't have the "AutoExtent" (because I think it isn't recognized as a sport.) Can I extend the recording past the scheduled end time of the show? --- you can do this on any show in Xfinity Roku app.
3) When I'm looking at the guide, I want to jump to a specific channel number on the guide, without switching to that channel on the stream. --- I know I can search, but that doesn't really work well when I just want to move the guide to channel 6, when I'm watching channel 315, or whatever. The work around I've found is to set a channel in favorites, change to that channel, then go back to guide to see those channels without having to hold up or down through 100 channels. But that process stinks.
4) If I'm recording a show series, can I set it to only save X number of shows? --- I sometimes record reruns of shows I like that are on at 3am, so I can watch them during the day, but I don't want to end up with 50 reruns being recorded. Xfinity allows you to say, "only keep 5 shows."
