I have much the same problem as Trebor2. I have a Recast and two Fire TV sticks, all on the same ethernet network. Both Fire TV sticks are paired to the Recast, and both will show me what has been recorded as well as what is on live TV. But when I try to play something from the Recast on one of the Fire TV sticks, it never starts (it has a little indicator that looks like it is buffering). The other Fire TV stick, as well as my phone and tablet, play content recorded on the Recast just fine. And both Fire TV sticks play Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc. just fine as well. I have unpaired and re-paired several times, and have rebooted everything.
I had a similar problem: 4 fire sticks, all had trouble finding the recast, some eventually "automatically" found the recast. In the end the problem was related to IPV6 being enabled on my network and the fire sticks choosing one of the "local" IPV6 address rather than a delegated one. Disabed IPV6 on the AT&T router, all fire sticks found the recast immediately. Once the sticks had "found" the recast, I enabled IPV6 and everything has been fine (for the last month anyway).
I love my re cast, but does anyone know what the led colors stand for, mine is showing green at the moment, I know white stays on when power is there and red is on while recording but what does the green mean?
Is there any way to "batch" delete recordings? I have 52 recordings of a sitcom that had a video burnout 3 days worth of broadcasts. Deleting them one by one is a pain in the tail. Any advice other than "Return the Recast to Amazon"?
