Re: how do I watch a recorded dvr show on my desktop computer

there is no official way

there is no windows or mac app

some people install an android emulator such as nox, and then install the android app

Re: how do I watch a recorded dvr show on my desktop computer

Thanks for the response.  Downloaded  a nox program and downloaded the Directv app so far so good.  However, could not get the Directv app to work.  Will continue to try, but not being very efficient computers and streaming may give up and use my Kindle.

This is terrible I use to be able to set programs to record from anywhere. It still works on one laptop where the link is in the history. I do not subscribe to premium services to lose functionality

You should still be able to set up recordings using the Guide on directv.com, or using the DirecTV app on your phone/tablet.
