Downloading missed episodes of Tv programs

Post by Ronjaq » Thu May 02, 2013 5:55 pm

Is there anyway I can download and save a missed episode of for example Revenge on CH 7. As I see it you must watch the episode direct which is not what I want to do. Maybe there is a program that lets you download and save to watch later. Any info would be appreciated thanks.

There are catch up services for the local stations (Iview, 7plus, etc) - designed for watching in a browser as an encoded internet stream. Display isn't as good as live on a high res TV, but it's a reasonable experience nevertheless. Not all programmes are available.

Anything that passes through a computer can trivially be saved to file. Since saving the stream for convenient interrupted viewing is what you are after you will need one of several scripts built on the open source code library RTMPDump.
