Locking recordings on DirectTv Stream

I have the directTv stream service on a Roku tv and use the Roku Tv remote.  How do I lock recordings that I bookmark on the stream app?

We watch saved movies from time to time and would like to keep movies longer 9 months. There are special movies like our Christmas movies we like keep to watch each year that are sometimes hard to find as well as some older movies that are some of our favorites.

That's not possible with DirecTV Stream because you're limited to 9 months. You would need to archive those recordings by copying them to a DVD Recorder or PC with suitable video recording hardware/software.

Not sure what you mean by "lock recordings"?

You posted in the Satellite Forum. I'll move your post to the DirecTV Stream Forum.

Thanks for sharing that information, @Gibby54

I want to clarify with you that once the maximum episode limit is met, the oldest recorded episode will be automatically deleted first. Please check the information in the next link about Record and watch shows with cloud DVR here


If further assistance is needed let us know, we'll be here for you.
