Contour app will not enable you to watch a recorded program from your account - does anyone else find this atrocious? Cox says - too bad you can’t do that - so other than watching a live program or setting up a recording schedule - limited value. So many friends are encouraging me to switch providers, frustrated in the Zona!!!
Don’t quite get the technical complexities of your solution - if I can see my account and list of recorded programs through the app, why wouldn’t you fix the technical issue and enable viewing vs requiring me to change the box (most likely to have to pay increased fees - just follow the money to find the answer) - TiVo had this figured out 15 years ago.... don’t quite understand your comment about - “can be viewed on a cable box and through the app while connected to your home network” - as an international traveler I simply want to be able to view what I have recorded while I am accessing the app through a network connection....would appreciate any comments on this - Cox tech support has simply said - can’t do it....
I see where this is headed. As a customer, I'd have to pay more to get the Panoramic wifi Gateway to access my recorded shows and movies. In addition I could ONLY do this while on my home wifi, not while travelling. So, what's the benefit? If at home, I'd just view the content on my big screen TV from the DVR. Can I assume that even at home, once you start viewing or streaming the content from the cloud you could only watch it on a "device", meaning you could not cast or mirror it to a TV... correct?
Scenario: Every time I watch a recorded show from the Cloud...let's say I watch it 3 times...will each viewing count against my Data Cap? If so, local storage would be better.
If I am traveling, can I schedule a recording from the app? If so, I can find it, schedule it, inventory it, delete it...i just can't watch it?
Why can't a server be the "host box?" Does Netflix require travelers to rent 2 boxes?
isn't a Cloud DVR an oxymoron...Cloud Local? It's not storing anything. It's just an option to record. Couldn't this option be on a regular cable-box? How much to rent a hard-driveless DVR...more than a regular cable-box? Couldn't subscribers just rent the option?
