WANT: Scheduling recording from phone app.

Since all recording is in the cloud, why can’t we schedule recordings from the app?

This would be really useful for those times when you realize you won’t be home on time to watch something.

I read it is because TIVO has a patent on that. It is being fought in court I also hear.

 

Yes it sure would be nice.

Re: WANT: Scheduling recording from phone app.

This issue has been discussed many times on this and other forums. TiVo's patent is being challenged and Rogers/Comcast currently don't allow for "manage PVR" functionality like we used to have.  If Comcast/Rogers win the challenge, we may get it and even if they lose, they may be willing to pay the "fee" to use it, but there is no date regarding that possibility at this time.  Nor do we know if that will only affect Ignite or also affect regular Cable TV.

Bell doesn't use Comcast-licensed technology. Rogers does.
