How to schedule a weekly recording using TiviMate?
To use TiviMate to record TV shows, you first need to install TiviMate Premium on your Android TV box and load IPTV details from your provider.
Follow these steps to use the custom recording feature on TiviMate to record upcoming shows.
- Go to the guide and find the channel you want to record (you DON’T have to look for the show as long as you know the day and time each week that it airs).
- Long press the select/okay button to bring up a menu on the right side of the screen.
- Scroll down and select “Custom recording” then “New recording”.
- Set your start date, start time, and duration.
- Click on repeat and select the day of the week that it airs.
- Finally, set a name for the recording.
Note: It may be best practice to set your duration to an extra 5-10 minutes. With IPTV sometimes there is a delay on the channels. If your show is scheduled to start at 7 pm on regular TV then it may not start on IPTV until 7:05 pm because of the delay. This means if it’s an hour-long show it won’t actually end until 8:05 pm. You’ll be pretty mad if you set it to end at 8:00 pm and miss the last 5 minutes of the program.

Do I need external storage to record IPTV?
Today, most IPTV streams have high bit rates that translate into high-quality pictures. The storage size for recording a 1080p TV episode of 40 to 50 minutes is between 2 and 4 gigabytes. Now, if you’re running Tivimate on any Android device with large internal storage (such as a MeCool box), you don’t need any external storage (such as a USB flash drive). However, if you run it on Firestick, you need external storage because the internal storage is small and limited.
Why is Tivimate not recording?
Make sure your device has power and Tivimate is running in the background. If you kill the app it won’t work. If you plug the USB power cord into your TV’s USB port then it might not get power when the TV is off.
