We are offering all existing AirTV Player customers the opportunity to participate in an open beta test of our local DVR service.
Sling TV already offers a cloud DVR service that allows customers to record many of their Sling TV delivered programs in the cloud. This new, "Local Channels DVR Service", allows customers to attach a user supplied storage device (a recommended external USB hard drive or USB thumb drive) for recording channels received via an antenna and the AirTV Adapter.
As a beta service, we do not warranty the performance of the DVR service. The Local Channels DVR Service will be available with no additional charge during the term of the Beta Test. The service will have a number of limitations during the term of the beta test and we expect many of those limitations to be resolved prior to full production release.
We recommend the following storage devices:
While other USB hard drives of 1TB or less and other USB thumb drives with 64GB, 128GB or 256GB may work, we only tested the storage devices listed above. USB thumb drives will work for recording and playback, however, a hard drive is recommended for optimal performance.
Hard drive connection
We recommend that hard drives and thumb drives are directly connected to the left-most USB port when looking at the back of the device. Drives of any kind must be connected to the device without the use of a USB hub.
We are continually making changes to the DVR feature, below you will find what is new and what is still in progress.
