Recording College Football

4 replies

Using the DVR for college football is a nightmare. I have set it in My Shows, but I am getting many that are recording as re-airs & many that aren't recording at all. I am not getting any of the games on the ESPN channels, & when I select a future game from a ESPN channel it sends me to my College Football My Shows thumbnail, yet does not show them as future recordings & does not record them.

 

Sports, particularly football, is my main reason for having PS Vue. This better get fixed or I will cancel my subscription.

    I just finished a chat with PS Vue Support. I was told that ESPN is not allowing their games to be recorded on PS Vue. They better not assume that sports fan only care about watching live. Way too many good games to watch them all live, not to mention that appointment TV is not always convient.

  • That's not true, I recorded FSU vs Ole Miss and watched it a few times in the next few days (and it was on ESPN). But I agree completely with the recording situation. I want to be able to record the one game I want, not every college football game. When I set "College Football" as my favorite shows, it records everything on every channel and then deletes all of the early games because it's too much content for the cloud dvr to hold. I can't guarantee myself that the one game I want will be there after every game gets recorded. It also didn't record the ONE game I wanted this week and recorded a bunch of cupcake games I have no interest in (this was a game on Fox Sports FL, and I even took "College Football" off of my shows and then selected it in particular on this station to put back on my shows and it still didn't record. Pretty bummed and disappointed with the dvr service.

    Are you sure of when it  recorded it. I believe I got that game as well as a re-air in the middle of the night. I believe the only ESPN games that will record is re-airs.

  • I just got done chatting with a customer support representative. My brother coached at CMU for 32 years my nephew is on the staff. Although I'm an MSU Spartan, for family reasons I'm a huge Chippewa fan. I decided that I would watch Michigan and record CMU OSU. Obviously a huge mistake. Michigan played a blow out against Central Florida and the CMU game is going to fill ESPN highlights for the upcoming college football news cycle. If I just had a heads up that this game was blacked out for recording I probably would have made a better decision. I thought VUE would finally cut the cable ties. I have been telling everyone I know that if you hate cable there is a viable alternative. Looks like early adopter pains. I'm going to have to redo the math and go crawling back to cable. Too bad I really hate those alternatives.
