    Max Remote DTVR - needs updating ASAP

    I cannot record new channels such as FXX on the Max Remote DTVR. Will this be addressed soon? Several channels are missing.

    Also the app itself is in need of a refresh. The Max logo is old and SaskTel doesn't even refer to the PVR as a DTVR anymore. Are there plans to update this app in the immediate future? Its a pretty important servie offered by SaskTel and should be treated as such.

    Thank you

      I see that the iOS version of the app has been updated. Any word on the Android version? Thank you

      Hi David,


      We've had a few snags getting this together but rest assured, we're working on it and hope to have it released asap.

      Any update on the Android version? Thanks

      Hello David, 

      The Android version has been problematic for us. I'm told we're going to be bringing out a "more robust" Remote PVR app. Scheduled release is January and will be for both Android and iOS. 

      Fingers crossed for less bugs and on time.

      It looks like the new app has been released. David have you or anyone else tried it? 

      Give us a review if you have.

      I have used it. It looks much better (great, actually) and it is very easy to use but a few of the previous issues are still there. Not all the channels are available (ie: FXX) and some of the channel icons are outdated (The Score has been Sportsnet 360 for some time now). This is likely a provider issue (Zap2It) so they may need to be notified? None the less, I'm quite happy with it. Well done!

      Is the new version of the app just for Android currently? Is a new update like this coming soon for iOS? Just looked on the App Store and shows that the last update for the iOS version was Sept 23, 2013.

      Hi Quentin, 

      Hang tight.  Something is on its way.  It shouldn't be long.

      Got the new IOS version of PVR remote.

      Good to see the app can make use of larger screen devices.

      Bad to see that I had to re-register, because previous login information did not carry over to the new app.

      Have installed the new Android version.Cannot login, however. I can successfully login over the web on my PC, but in the app the same credentials always come back with a "This password is incorrect" error. Not an entry error - have tried this multiple times on multiple devices. Is it the same credential required? Are there different password requirements, for some reason?

    • SaskTel Support

      Hello J. Gutwin,

      I think we've discovered a trick...

      When you get to the screen that says to put in your email and password don't enter your information. Make sure you scroll down to Registration. 
      After you choose Registration put in your email address and password. 
      Let us know if that helps.
