I am considering setting up a home network PC based server that possibly could be used as the recording device and then fed to my Smart TV thru an Ethernet connection.
If your smart TV or some other connected media device, such as a Blu Ray player, has a USB port, you may be able to watch the downloaded items via USB flash drive or external HDD/SSD as well. This is what I do. I've got all of my PlayOn Cloud files written to a 1TB external SSD. Though I dind't know it until I tried, my smart TV has a built in file playing app which plays the .mp4 format of the PlayOn Cloud files, as does my Blu Ray player.
I also write the files to DVDs and/or Blu Rays for more permanent storage.
That's great. I hope other people try this and share how it works for them.
I had the same problem..which I have solved..kind of!
I installed a separate wifi router..and turned off wifi in the Hughes modem. I can now stream amazon prime through my smart tv and through Roku. Amazon prime still does not work with the Amazon firestick tho.
PlayOn Cloud rocks. I've been using it for quite a while now, and since it keeps recordings for 7 days (I have the free option with the 7-day limit), I don't have to plan too much, just set up the recording and download it during bonus times (or elsewhere where it won't affect my data), and watch whenever. Great product.
That's great to hear! I'm glad it's working well for you.
It definitely makes it a lot easier than trying to stream the traditional way. 🙂
Keep an eye out for the Anytime Credits sales emails too, as they often have really good ones in which you don't end up having to buy a ton of them to get a great per credit price. They're sometimes as low as 10 cents per.
