I know Roku was different for me. I didn't get much reply at all from Fubo support until I sent videos of the Instant DVR function I recorded from my phone while interacting with the instant DVR in my devices. I did forget to note that hours later, these recordings were normal; they worked as expected.Thanks for your input! I have had some issues where it says it can't play from the beginning, and it almost seems like it is recording things with odd hours that appear to be corrupt. And it doesn't seem to like a lot of trick play during "Instant DVR", which makes that "feature" useless. If I do lose games I'm counting on, I will definitely be out of there quickly! My problem is that no one is carrying my RSN now except for Fubotv and AT&T. I might have to go direct to the NHL app with a VPN.
And when Fubo support says the thumbnail views are available on most channels and instant DVR recordings, I should have clarified: they're slow to appear when initiating on Apple TV 4K. I don't think they even populated for my on my Roku Ultra 4660. I think limited RAM on the Roku (1 GB vs 3 GB on the Apple TV) and speed of connection (200 Mbps here but measured at about 100 Mbps to Fubo TV with my new CCGTV advanced stats) are also factors to consider. But data I've collected seems to point at the instant DVR being insufficient and in need of improvement. I asked Fubo support to consider their 3rd party providers, if applicable. They should be asking themselves, "What can we do to get the equivalent of Philo or YTTV instant DVR to remedy these shortcomings?".
And trick play was the catalyst for be too. I'd press skip and most devices would jump to near end or live, whichever was relevant at the time. But I'm also guessing where it was jumping to. With NASCAR recordings, I'd usually see post race burnout, winner being interviewed at start finish line or cutting scene to commercial with the winner doing some victory celebration. Infuriating because it's hardly worth watching if the outcome is known in advance; I was just trying trying to skip intros and ads to get to the initial action (start of race).
Spoilers of all kinds exist for sports connoisseurs that like to delay live action just enough to skip ads and take in the action- I'll forget what I'm watching with an the nonsense ad breaks! Can't open my browser, read my google feed or pulldown my notification even (without spoilers). Do any of these services take feedback? Nope; business as usual.
I subscribe to NFL Gamepass but good luck trying to catch these replays in condensed version without these spoilers in play. I was even watching the ATP finals on ESPN and that scrolling NFL updates and scores while I was delaying that replay. Total nonsense; even the NFL app on most devices with exception being my PC, open the app and they've got forced auto play spoiling key plays or some talk head telling me why my favorite team lost and its key quarterback, players or coaches careers are over. These providers don't get it. I didn't ask for or want their spoiling or banter.
I saw your suggestion for channels DVR service. But I don't have a NAS server or a mounted antenna. I'm likely paying extra and not liking the terms of services because of that. I do like to follow multiple teams in the NFL though. But sometimes when there's a local outage, I'm glad my recordings are in the cloud and not getting that interruption that I'm experiencing.
