    The YouTube TV Thread

    Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. When I saw that they were going to give us a choice I was excited but now I see that the choice doesn't actually matter since the shows still force you to watch VOD. It's really only useful in the first week when the DVR version is still available.

    Valve announces Steam Machines, the Steam Box hardware beta

    Yeah, Amazon is definitely big enough to be serious competition for Steam if they decide to really go after that market. Giving away free games to Prime members every month is a great way to get their foot in the door too. So far I've been claiming the free games but I haven't actually...

    Possible xbox Hard drive issues....is all lost

    Hmm... that’s the first I’ve heard of something like that. I’ve been using a bus powered EHD since they first turned on the ability to use EHDs without issue.

    Possible xbox Hard drive issues....is all lost

    If the external hard drive was still working all you would have to do is plug it in and all the game would be ready to go. Since it sounds like it’s not they will have to be downloaded again. Once he is logged into his account he will just have to go into “my games and apps”. There is a section...

    Possible xbox Hard drive issues....is all lost

    I've never heard of anyone getting a virus on an Xbox but it seems pretty unusual for both the external and internal hard drive to fail at the same time. Like meStevo said though, both their purchases and saves should be fine. Purchases are tied to the Microsoft account and saves are backed up...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    I know stuff someone heard from a CSR is iffy at best but there is a thread in the YouTube TV Subreddit right now saying that support told them they are rolling out the ability to choose your recording or the VOD version of episodes. A bit further down in that thread there are a couple people...

    No sound when setting Dolby Digital off on H3

    It does have Dolby Vision so Dolby might have put in some requirements that the audio features actually work properly. I have a feeling that is just a coincidence though.

    No sound when setting Dolby Digital off on H3

    I think this probably depends on the hardware involved, not necessarily ARC itself. I bought my first 4K TV last summer and it happens to have Roku built in to handle its smart TV features. I don't have cable/satellite anymore so I use the built in Roku constantly for YouTube TV's OTT service...

    X-Box S

    I don't know how well it compares to other UHD blu-ray players but the Xbox One S and Xbox One X are plenty good enough for me. My only advice would be to look for deals. The 500GB model is frequently available for less than the standard price of $250 especially if you don't care whether it...

    Xbox One, issue with Ready to Install List & External Drive

    That is not the way it normally works. I have a 2TB external drive set as the main drive on my Xbox One X. This is the same external drive I used on my launch Xbox One and my Xbox One S. With all 3 of those systems, when I install a game it disappears from the ready to install list and moves...

    Yeah he mentioned that as soon as he finished the episode it switched to the on demand version. He just claimed as long as it was registered as partially watched it kept the recorded version and kept his place in the episode.

    The YouTube TV Thread

    I don’t know if this is accurate but I saw someone on Reddit claim that if he started watching the recordings before they were replaced by the on demand version those recordings stayed available until he finished them. That’s not an ideal situation but it’s a possible workaround.

    Where are my Satellite Guy's gamers at?

    Yeah there wasn’t much positive buzz around launch despite most of the people who did play it liking it.

    Where are my Satellite Guy's gamers at?

    Deus Ex Mankind Divided is a game I've been meaning to get around to for quite a while. I love RPGs but I strongly prefer sci-fi to fantasy so it seems like it would be perfect for me. Glad to hear that you are liking it. I don't blame you for wanting to move on from DA after 110 hours. When I...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    I have come home twice this week to every light on the front of my Roamio flashing. Unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in has worked so far but from what I’ve read in google searches all of the lights flashing like that means it’s on its way out. I’ve already had the power...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    I just had my first experience with one of my recordings from NBC being replaced with the on demand version. It is even worse than I thought it would be. A 30 second ad before the show starts and then 5 separate commecrical breaks with 5 ads each in a 30 minute show? That seems a bit excessive...

    I’ve been watching March Madness all evening and I’m glad to see that YouTube TV has been just as solid as any other night. One of my concerns with these internet delivered options was that they would get bogged down with people doing free trials during events like this. I’m happy to see that...

    I really don't believe the $35 will stay for life but it does have me questioning my plans to cancel when March Madness and my shows end this spring. If being in at the initial price point means you are safe from all future price increases it would be worth keeping my subscription active and...

    I've only been a customer for a few weeks and I'm currently only recording a few shows through YouTube TV but I haven't had this happen with any of mine so far. I even went back to my oldest episode and it was still my original recording. That episode is only a couple weeks old though. I did...

    Dish Hikes MLB Extra Innings Price By 6%

    With EI the cable/sat provider has to get their share of the money too. With MLB.tv the customer is going directly to them. That probably explains at least some of the price difference.
