Details here and I wasn't invited: DIRECTV NOW Rolls Out Fire TV DVR Beta to All Beta Testers - Cord Cutters News I have been with DTV for 21 years. Tried Now awhile back but no Locals and no DVR. I followed the instructions in the Link above, logged on with my Sat service ID, and got in. Liked what I saw but no time to play now. Tried to Record two shows but didn't work but then I don't know what kind of Storage I need, Cloud or Hardware. Settings provided no clues. Also says, FTV Gen 2 only but I have a gen 3 that came out a few months back. Installed, loaded, and ran fine. Maybe that is why I can't record. BTW, don't like Gen 3 much because of banner ads. Is faster but I miss my rooted Gen 1.
