Stranger Things?

Re: Stranger Things?

I can do that, but it's of note that the phone isn't actually doing the recording, PlayOn Cloud is.  The phone just sets it up.  The streamed content never touches the phone, or at least not the way I do it (downloading to my computer, and not automatically to my phone).    

 

I did just find this, though, so I think I'm going to try it with my computer, first.

If this doesn't work, I'll try it with the Netflix app on my phone, though I'm not really sure why it would matter, with the recordings actually being done by the cloud DVR and not the phone.

Re: Stranger Things?

I should add that it probably won't be until next month before I try this, as Stranger Things is going to use up the majority of my Bonus Zone data, or at least 25GB - 30GB of it.

Re: Stranger Things?

When I was having issues, I followed the info on that site and it didn’t work for me, so I contacted PlayOn tech support and they told me to watch the show for at least 6 minutes on the same device where I had the PlayOn Cloud app installed.

 

You may have better luck than me, though.

Re: Stranger Things?

Well, like I said, it probably won't be until at least next month before I do it.  I'll make sure to let you know how it worked, or if it did, I should say.  

 

I just recorded the first season of Stranger Things, and have the first five episodes downloaded so far.  Had I known they were going to download this fast I would have started recording the seconds season tonight, too.  I'll do it tomorrow (Thursday), and I'll probably do the third season tomorrow, as well, and hope that the downloading goes as well as tonight.
