Answer:
Surely they will, but unlesss you really need to replace another DVR like a TIVO and you can live with the limited schedule presentation it may be a good idea to wait for at least some more software features. Ideally I would also wait for v2 hardware.

Answer:
Recast does record everything in it's native format thus at what ever resolution it was broadcast at. But, it transcodes the signal on the fly when it sends it out over both your home wifi network or over the web for remote viewing via mobile devices. And according to Amazon, the maximum resolution it transcodes at it … see more Recast does record everything in it's native format thus at what ever resolution it was broadcast at. But, it transcodes the signal on the fly when it sends it out over both your home wifi network or over the web for remote viewing via mobile devices. And according to Amazon, the maximum resolution it transcodes at it 720P@60fps. But what people need to understand is that 720P@60fps is just as good as 1080i because 1080i is interlaced only sending 540 lines @60fps or 1080 lines @30fps. 1080P@60fps is obviously better but there are no OTA signals that broadcast at 1080P, they are all 720P or 1080i. And since this is an OTA DVR only, the 720P@60fps max resolution is not an issue. see less Recast does record everything in it's native format thus at what ever resolution it was broadcast at.

Answer:
You might want to check out Philo. It is only $16 a month and you get almost all the channels you would with Cable, except for Bravo. I have it and you can even schedule to saved and watch later on it for no extra charge.

Answer:
There is a problem with this question, the number of tuners doesn't tell you how many devices can watch at the same time. The digital tuners limit the number of channels that can be recorded at one time. So the recast has a 2 and 4 option so if you get the cheaper option you can only record 2 channels at the same time … see more There is a problem with this question, the number of tuners doesn't tell you how many devices can watch at the same time.

The number of transcoders is what limits the number of devices it can stream to at once and the specifications says "Transcoders (for playback) 2" see less

Answer:
No it is not like a Tivo (mostly). Some Tivos can record cable, this can not. Most Tivos have very detailed options on recording and keeping programs, this does not (yet? I can not see the future). Tivos work with any TV this does NOT work with your TV, it works with your fire TV DEVICE. This will ONLY record OTA chann… see more No it is not like a Tivo (mostly).

Tivos work with any TV this does NOT work with your TV, it works with your fire TV DEVICE. This will ONLY record OTA channels and then stream that recorded show or OTA channel to a capable fire TV DEVICE, not an actual TV. Many Tivos can get content from multiple locations (internet, internet apps, cable, and OTA) this only gets OTA channels. Now if you look at the very basic of Tivo is a DVR, Recast is a DVR, yes it is like the Tivo in the very basics of the function of the device.

Answer:
You can play them when the internet it out. The internet is only used for the guide and it lasts a few days with no connections anyway.

Answer:
If you’re asking, “Can I record a specific program every time it’s on?”, then yes. If you’re asking, “Will it record the same time each and every morning, regardless of what’s on?”, then no.
