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:
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:
At this time there does not appear to be an app for the Samsung (or any smart tv other then Amazon integrated ones)…. You will need to add a Fire TV stick.

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:
2 and that is true for the 4 tuner model as well... Only 2 Fire TV (App, Stick, TV), can pull streams from the recast at one time.

Answer:
That sounds more like a question for your WiFi router either being to slow or on the same channel as a neighbor which is causing interference.

Answer:
NO.......
You must have a router for the RECAST and FIRE STICK to communicate.
The FIRE STICK requires Internet and a WIFI connection to link to the RECAST and aquire programming information.
