Introduction: Record Sling TV

Picture of Record Sling TV

What You'll Need:
Roku 1
RF Modulator
DVR (Or VCR and VHS Tapes)
Universal Remote

Step 1: Setting Up the Hardware

Plug The Roku into the RF Modulator, the RF Modulator into the DVR, and the DVR into the TV. You can also plug a TV antenna into the RF in port on the RF Modulator for local channels, but this is optional. If you have both a Cable In and Antenna In on your DVR, Plug the RF mod into Cable In, and if you have an antenna, plug it into the Antenna In port.

Step 2: Setting Up the Software

Scan for channels on the DVR. The Roku should be on channels 3 or 4 and the local channels should be on there normal channel. Set up the Roku and sign into all of your services.

Step 3: Your Done!

You can now use Sling TV, or other Roku services, with your DVR! If you really want a cable tv experience, you can use an RF splitter and connect it to additional TVs (or more DVRs).

I'm assuming that as far as Sling TV goes, there would be now way to schedule a recording. You would have to manually begin recording and end it. If you can schedule it, please explain.
