Ratings and Reviews
This app is ok, but could use the following:
Fully licensed Dolby Audio,
Better playback controls,
Ability to download recordings from server to play on the go, either converted or same as on server.
Ability to remote control app from another device also a request for the Windows program.
Better airplay support for playing shows and live tv on newer devices
Server: ability to capture and convert to h.264 and convert and preserve audio for playing on the go.
The app also needs proper pause on background support as playback stops when you tap a notification or bring up control center.
Add a pop up dialog for choosing whether to play a video from the beginning or not without long pressing the recording.
With the above features the app would be amazing,
Works great for me. I previously used stream-to-me and ceton media center. This app does what I previously needed two apps for. Would be nice to have more video skip controls (e g skip forward 60 sec or back 15 sec) but that’s minor compared to being able to watch recorded video and live video!
Updated Review: I Love It!
Recent improvements in the app have made this one a real winner. An incredible accomplishment really, to be able to watch over the air broadcasts on my mobile device. Worth every cent.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
