How do you start recording a show when it is already in progress?

How do you start recording a show when it is already in progress?

I tried to use the app to start recording a show that was already in progress. I assumed it would be an option when you are viewing the show or on the guide. I could not find a way to start recording while show in progress.

Hi @BigBear, thanks for letting us know your concern.

We'd like to share how do you start recording a show when it is already in progress in DIRECTV STREAM.

* While watching a program or from within the guide: Press the overflow button (...) on your DIRECTV STREAM remote to record. Select OK to record once or Record Series.

- Go to DIRECTV STREAM and scroll down to see your options.
- Swipe right to highlight your choice and select Record.
- Select All Episodes or New Episodes.

Here is the complete information about how to "record and watch shows with cloud DVR"

As I stated I'm on the APP. 

If you are "out of home" does the REC option show up ?

Hello @BigBear, We would be happy to assist.


You should still have the option to record when using the app out of your home.

Let us know if this helps.
