Direct TV music and recording

Recommended Posts

Our DTV package includes music channels. We run the music from the Direct receiver to a Kenwood receiver which in turn sends the music out thru our sound system in the fiver. Is there a way to record that music to a CD?

Our DVR will not record the music channels. You might try a DVD Recorder/Player but no guarantee it will work either. I suggest just buying some CD's of the music you like. Chuck

With all due respect, the advent of multiple sources of streaming music has made things like DirecTV's music channels rather irrelevant for many people.  Why have to settle with someone else's definition of the music genre you like, when you can define your music selections with precision?  My wife has dozens of "stations" defined on Pandora and it creates playlists focused on the music she likes from those stations.  All this for <$10/mo.

Bandwidth, connectivity, poor speaker quality on a phone. Once it's burned to a CD, it's easy to build a road tunes disc, a cuddle time disc, all kinds of mix discs. Don't judge.

The bandwidth needed for streaming audio is trivial compared to what's needed for video.  Even 3G connections can handle the ~40-50MB/hr data rate needed.

As for poor speaker quality on a phone, who's talking about listening using the phone's speaker?  We listen to music using our Roku's and listen through our main audio system.  Sounds great.  We also own a couple of Bluetooth-enabled speaker systems for outdoor listening.

No one's judging, just making a point that there are lots of alternatives for listening to music these days.

And Joel's trend of thought. Add in Spotify, where you can make playlists. (We just had our 40th Anniversary, and the DW created a 200 or so playlist.)

And, one of the neat features of both Pandora, and Spotify - is you can download what you are streaming to playback in Offline mode. We have several different series of Pandora's Project Nome(SP?) (Pandora, allows you to Thumb's Up or Down a song. And over a period of time, learns what song types you like, and adapts your playlist accordingly. Now several years old tech, but still pretty slick for it's, and even now, time.) infused Playlist's seed off line. And likewise Spotify. Having a Computer, or say a phone with an SD Card, allows for hundreds and hounders of hour's available to you. 

So when you're in an area where robust internet is available (Phone, Hotspot, Park WiFI, Stick's & Brick's home...) - take the time to set yourself up for times while traveling when no internet is available... 

And, then you don't need to worry about Data Download Limitation's:)!

Best to all,

Smitty
