In the RECORDED tab you can find all recordings made by all of your connected HDHomeRun DVR storage devices on your local network, if you have an HDHomeRun DVR subscription. Recordings are organized by “All recordings”, “Shows”, and “Movies”.
The DVR system remembers where you stopped watching and will let you resume on another device. For example, if you were watching a recorded movie on your TV via your Xbox One, you could stop the video, go into another room, and resume watching on your iPad.
Selecting a program will open up info about that program. If a selected program is a TV show, you will see a list of recorded episodes.
- Play – Selecting a row will play the video.
- Start from beginning – Pressing to the left of a row and pressing select (selecting the icon) will start the recording from the beginning (in the case the the program was already being watched).
- Delete recording – Pressing to the right of a row and pressing select (selecting the icon) will delete that specific recording from the DVR storage device.
Deleting a recording:
Pressing to the right of a row and pressing select (selecting the icon) will delete that specific recording from the DVR storage device. This will present the user with three options:
- Delete – will confirm the deletion and permanently delete the recording from your DVR storage.
- Re-record – will re-record a specific movie or episode at a later time. Useful in case a given recording had an issue, such as if a programming error occurred or a storm had caused reception issues.
- Cancel – will back out of the deletion process.
If you delete the actual file off of your DVR storage, instead of deleting the recording through the HDHomeRun app, then the software will assume that something went wrong with the recording and attempt to record that same episode or movie again.
DVR record engine is not showing up in the app when both are on the same PC:
By default, Windows 10 blocks Windows Store apps from communicating with other apps/services on the same PC. This can prevent the Windows 10 app from finding a DVR running on the same PC. The HDHomeRun installer changes a setting that should bypass this issue. Should you find that you can access the DVR from other devices but not from the Windows 10 PC it is running on, do the following:
- Right click on your Start menu icon and choose Windows PowerShell (Administrator) or Command Prompt (Admin)
- Run the following command:
CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n="ef712ba7.hdhomerundvr_23nna27hyxhag"
DVR not accessible from Windows 7/8.1 app
The HDHomeRun app for Windows 7 and 8.1 does not support the DVR. Use Kodi with the HDHomeRun add-on instead. http://my.hdhomerun.com/instructions/kodi/
Use of 3rd Party Firewall/Security software may cause problems.
3rd party anti-virus software should not be used on the PC being used for recordings. It impedes performance and can block necessary network traffic. Native Windows software is sufficient.
