💬  Looks like Amazon is discontinuing the Fire TV Recast over-the-air DVR — Update: Confirmed by Amazon
  1. Len Mullen says:

    I don't think so, but I expect at some point Amazon will at least stop providing guide data, since that is an ongoing cost. I wouldn't expect that to happen for another 3-4 years at least.
    That would be a really bad PR move. Amazon can afford the guide data until the end of time. So, time for a review of other OTA DVRs options for the Echo Show?

    I will begin my transition from Amazon fire products immediately. My tv viewing strategy is long term which does not map to Amazon's short lived product strategy. I'll keep this in mind when considering Amazon branded products in the future. I'm sure this decision will affect spares and support.
    Me too. Very disappointed. Looking at this as a replacement: SiliconDust HDHomeRun Flex 4K ATSC 3.0 NextGen . I guess it’s no great rush, but I’m steering away from Amazon/Echo/Eero starting now. Google Nest is really a better voice assistant anyway (at least for information questions). I’ll be slowly leaving my Amazoncetric set up as I start replacing things.

💬  Amazon’s new 2022 Fire 7 tablet is on sale for the first time — Fire HD 8 & 10 also on sale

    Does the 7" tablet fit your pocket?
    I've had the two previous versions of the 7" and they both fit perfectly in all my suit and sport jacket pockets, the ones on the inside of the jacket. I guess they're called the breast pockets. They also fit in the jacket side pockets, but loosely and didn't seem as secure as the inside pockets that almost seemed made for the 7" tablet. I never put them in trouser pockets, though.

    Amazon has disappointed once again.Fire Phone Fire TV Gaming Edition Fire TV RecastPromises and then abandoned. The Recast works, but has many quirks. Audio sometimes is not in sync, having to rewind and fast forward to sync up again. Switching between english and spanish broadcast causes issues when switching back to english where audio stays stuck on spanish audio stream. Many of these issues were reported but no official fix was made by their support team. This product had potential, unfortunately it was never enhanced beyond the basics. I was fine without commercial skip as the fast forwards was easy to use to get past commercials. In the end, I hope this is not what the future of their products will be like.

    True. But,and I know this may sound like I'm whining, the whole point of me integrating everything in the house over to Amazon land (especially using a Cube to control TV, AVR, game consoles, BD, etc) is to reduce the number of remotes I have to use to control every device and do it all with their remote and my voice.

    Well, I just hope they continue enough support that I get to use it long enough to get my money's worth out of it, as I haven't had mine that long. I have internet, and all my 6 TVs are "smart", so without the recast, I have zero use for any of these Fire sticks I bought either. And this probably wouldn't have been considered a "niche" product, if they'd advertised it just a little.

    I've had my 4-tuner for a few years, in a center closet where I drilled a hole in the ceiling to run the antenna coax. Has been very reliable in recording, and I like to watch them in the kitchen, with a 10" Echo Show that replaced my TV. This will be a bummer. The only issues I've had are deleting shows sometimes ("You're not connected to Recast - check the Wi-Fi...", but I can playback shows), which I try to solve with reboots of both fire stick and recast, but it's not clear yet what the issue is.
    Same thing happens to me sometimes. I have to do a factory reset of the Firestick to get it to work again. I found that even when the stick causes that problem, I can still delete shows using the app.

    I quickly lost interest when I found out it was only 720p. It made no sense to release a whole house OTA NVR with less than 1080p in 2018, maybe in 2008, not 2018.
    I use mine daily, and to be honest, I can't tell any difference between the picture it displays, and the native 1080 broadcast. But then, I'm probably older and less picky than some.

  1. John says:

    We have the larger Recast and use it every day. As our schedules don't allow viewing programs live and we don't want to subscribe to multiple streaming services to watch the variety of shows that are available OTA, we use the DVR function almost exclusively. The main reason for getting the recast in HD first place was for broadcasting thd signal over WiFi throughout our house. I think this wouldn't be such a niche product if they had hyped it as much as Alexa. Most people have never heard of it.

    As others pointed out, I meant 1080i not p. I see quite a few things in 1080 on the main channel, but not on the subchannels, those are always low resolution and usually highly compressed (i.e. look terrible).No doubt it depends on the market one is located in, I'm sure in some markets there is little 1080 content. So maybe a pointless addition for you, but the content I would record does benefit from 1080 capability.
    Many of the major networks are in 1080i everywhere: CBS, NBC, PBS, The CW, and Univision are all that resolution. Fox is 720p, and ABC is either 1080i or 720p depending on where you live. ION is also 1080i, but only 30fps.The subchannels that show old movies or 60s TV shows are almost all 480i. And the stations usually don't give them enough bits so they look terrible even by the standards of that resolution.Some of the major networks produce some of their programming in 4K, and offer it that way on their ATSC 3.0 pilots. But mostly not.

    The Recast does store recorded video in its raw 1080i format, when available. The raw file does look noticeably sharper than the 720p encoded stream that it sends out.
    In Austin Texas and Cleveland Ohio where NextGen TV did it's first test there are some networks in 4k already . You can look up NextGen TV to see whick markets have it and which ones are launching soon. But the truth is they've enjoyed double dipping having to provide free OTA and betting consumers would rather pay cable or satellite to provide their local lineup.so hopefully smart TVs where your able to use your personal advertising ID businesses local and abroad work just like your phone and YouTube direct marketing will get those stations and vendors an incentive to upgrade sooner.

    ATSC 3.0 is far more niche than the Recast. All markets that have 3.0 still show most of their channels on 1.0 so you need both tuners. Silicon dust makes a hybrid network tuner with 2 3.0/1.0 tuners and 2 1.0 tuners. Amazon could to the same thing but they would have to charge significantly more for the device.
    Samsung and LG TVs 2021 and up have ATSC 3.0 or NextGen TV with Quadtuner for cable/satellite or Antenna and streaming combined. With my LG channels /antenna local works great 375 ch. We get Sling for LG free no need for HD tuner DVR or any external player just added Dolby Atmos Soundbar and Deezer Spotify Apple Amazon music and Tidal which we use makes the tv into all in one entertainment center.

    Hi Rik, I have a channel in my market(Phoenix) that broadcasts in MPEG-4. It does not generate a picture (only sound) on my Recast (as it only supports the older MPEG-2) I have an 2 Tuner Silicon Dust HDHomeRun (it’s older than the Recast) that DOES decode the channel. I learned of this change from Tyler (The Antenna Man) who reviews antennas and provided updates on things like NextGen TV(ATSC 3.0) and other OTA topics. It sounds like broadcast stations will be moving to the MPEG-4 standard (perhaps as part of the NextGen TV rollout, but it speaks to the fact that without any planned update to the Recast (software or hardware) it’s likely to become a $200 doorstop. Sad as it has (had) a lot of potential…

    I think you mean ATSC 3.0. The Recast will never pick up ATSC 3.0 channles. The ATSC 3.0 channels are so sparse now that only hybrid 3.0/1.0 network tuners are being produced.
    We're in the early days of ATSC 3.0 introduction. It's like ATSC 1.0 in 2003 or thereabouts, there wasn't a lot to watch. Eventually we'll reach a tipping point and the floodgates will open... either that or the technology will be a flop, hard to say.

    The advantage for Tivo is that you don't need broadband internet for OTA. You can get by 100mb of slow mobile data per month to download the guide data. The recast should have the ability to record from streaming apps that support the tv everywhere protocol. If you're using the fire tv recast you have to have broadband so you would want to record from every source, OTA and TV Everywhere.

    It could have been great. An avid Tivo user, I bought the 1 TB Recast during that first Pre-Prime Week where they were $179. It actually worked really good, and I loved the integration into one guide of a budget pay tv streamer, free OTT channels, and my antenna channels, but was relegated to my use only because it was difficult for family to use due to interface (until the FireTV remote with the live tv button came out). Mine went on eBay when I got tired of visiting vacation home and only being able to watch my shows on my phone or Fire tablet. Still use exclusively FireTV to access in both places, but now they are used for Channels DVR with a Silicon Dust HDHomeRun 4 channel tuner with ATSC 3. Amazon seems to be far more mainstream than niche and I see the physical DVR being more and more a niche "geek" thing as the streaming services and their limited and expensive cloud DVRS take over. Recast had a great thing going with the free lifetime guide, but for the remote viewing I get with Channels I'm willing to spend the $8 a month.

    Renatonico, I thought I was the only with that issue (can't connect when trying to delete). I had Google Nest (replaced with Eeeo Pro 6 E). I thought that possibly the Recast was connecting on 2.4ghz and Fire Cube on 5ghz. There is no way to force it on either of those routers.It picks what it thinks is best. Rebooting Recast and/or Cube usually resolves it.
