I recently switched from Gateway portal hardware to BlueCurve Home/Cloud PVR. Using the BlueCurve TV app, is there a way to set or schedule PVR recordings? I can see recorded programs, and delete programs, but no place to start/set/schedule recordings remotely/when away from home. I can't seem to find a place to do so. This was a convenient option that was available in the gateway app for iOS/Apple device.
Nope! That’s why I have yet to make the switch as you did. I can’t believe you can now watch your recorded shows or even download them to an app BUT cannot set your pvr with the app. Unreal. Telus is surging ahead rapidly with their technology. I’m a loyal Shaw customer but it’s starting to feel like an old dinosaur now. Tech is old and only half functionality. The support which used to be superior is now hours on queue.
Ok, you can't set your PVR with the app....but there are countless reasons why I abandoned Telus and their antiquated hardware. Their remote has no voice control. They say they give a bandwidth of 75 Mpbs, which I never saw go past 45. They cap your data and charge you for your overages.
Shaw has a bandwidth of 300 Mpbs for the same price, so if it slows down to even < 200, I still don't notice. There is no data cap.
I have in-home security cameras...when connecting thru their app via Telus, I had a 10-15 delay to connect. With Shaw, it's within 2 seconds.
So you can rah-rah-rah about Telus, but I'll never go back.
Record by PVR..I'm sure it's just around the corner and I'll gladly wait.
