First - the app is rock solid stable, even when running on an old laptop with Ubuntu installed with a 7TB disk hanging off of it.
Next, the interface is very intuitive.
I usually get a response within an hour or less of posting a question. I'd like to see any cable company try to match that.
The automatic commercial skip is magic! Very rarely does it fail, and when it does, I just takes a click or two in order to get where I want.
Remote viewing on devices built in? Wow
The cost of the software is minimal for the power you provide with it. And you guys don't nickel and dime for every little feature. (Don't get any ideas!)
The guide and app on iOS are far more responsive than TIVO, Cox cable, and DirecTV. Over the years I've had them all - now I just use channels with an OTA antenna. There's so many stations in Phoneix that I could probably receive them on a paper clip antenna.
My only issue is hardly related to the app. I have to leave my macbook pro open so it doesn't go to sleep as it is my DVR server. It's not a huge issue, but Phoenix is dusty and it's really going to screw up my keyboard over time. (Not that it isn't already screwed up, I just don't want it to get worse.
That's a hard one. Maybe offer cloud based storage as an option (I would pay more if I needed this)?
I would like better search options on apple TV. I'd like to record "The Good Doctor" in fall, but since it is not in the published guide yet I don't think I can set this up. Maybe have a section for 'new shows', 'new seasons'? A web page reviewing all the upcoming shows with an option to record them on the web page? I know, I am stretching now...
A real stretch would be Alexa integration. "Alexa, Tell channels to set up a series pass for the good doctor", or "Alexa, record the cardinals football game this weekend"
Not that you guys need my suggestions - you're doing great on your own! Thanks again for creating a great app.
For the rest of the community, I am not, nor have I ever been affiliated with Channels. I work for a large engineering software provider, and have been working with computers since the Commodore Vic 20 in 1981 I bought after delivering many many newspapers. I have done some beta testing, and a tiny bit of BASIC, ForTran, Pascal, and Python coding. I currently hold a ham radio license.
