H2 View Recordings on DTV Receiver

I have Direct TV Satellite at my cabin, which I've had 10+ years. No Internet at the cabin. I can watch live TV using the DIrect TV app from anywhere. Is there a way to access my recordings on the receiver at my cabin (there is no Internet to connect to it, only via the Direct TV app on my phone)? I'd like to see a ball game that I've recorded, even if on my tiny phone, when I am not at the cabin.

Streaming DVR out-of-home was removed years ago. It is as yet unknown if they are planning to reintroduce that with the new app.

DIRECTVhelp refers to streaming DVR while in the home.

Also hope that satellite at your cabin is a slimline SWM dish, so MPEG-4/HD capable. If not, look into options to replace it and make sure your boxes at home and cabin are all MPEG-4. All MPEG-2/SD-only options need to be swapped.

Hi there @tbidder. Your receiver at home needs to be connected to the internet for you to access your recordings on your DIRECTV App. Ritchelle, DIRECTV Community Specialist
