DVR operation in client app?

Having to use the web via smartphone to record a program is pretty clunky. Is there a way to do this in the smart TV client app?

If not, is it planned?

    Sorry, it's not currently available and not planned either.

    :D Not planned? Really? It's all over the web today, embedded in the announcement that PMS now supports LIVE viewing. In fact, it's even in the official Plex blog (https://www.plex.tv/blog/well-do-it-live/):

    In-app DVR Management: You can now browse the program guide, manage recordings, and more directly from the Android TV and iOS apps (with more to follow).

    I can't begin to fathom the reasoning for that, but I appreciate the reply anyway. :smile:

    If I can figure out how, I'll submit a feature request for this.

    That may be, but for your information : I'm not Plex, but a third-party developer that is working on this app as a hobby.

    And you do a ton of support here, and I appreciate it.

    I just thought it was funny that the feature I wanted got implemented before I could even submit a feature request. And that I got word of it from my Google News page, then from arstechnica.com, before reading it here. Evidently, they were keeping details "close to the vest" until today's announcement--leaving us all in the dark.

    I went ahead and upgraded my Plex Pass to the lifetime subscription. Wish I'd done it when they had the $99 special.
