ReplayTV is a very popular solution for people who don’t always have the time to record TV shows, but still don’t want to miss them.
In this article we will discuss whether you can use the new Mesh WiFi together with ReplayTV to watch all your TV shows whenever you want.
How exactly does ReplayTV work?
ReplayTV is a kind of “time-shifted television“. It allows users to watch all the TV shows that have been broadcast in the last hours or days by many channels in retrospect. A practical feature is that, unlike the classic video recorder, the desired channels do not have to be determined in advance.
In addition, ReplayTV does not play back web interruptions. This way you can watch your favourite TV channels without commercial breaks and whenever you want.
What is Mesh WiFi?
Mesh WiFi is a new solution to improve WiFi reception in your home. In the past you always had to use W-Lan repeaters to get better reception. However, these W-Lan repeaters did not always achieve the best results, so that the purchase of a W-Lan repeater was often not worthwhile.
Instead of buying a repeater, which might be a remedy, you should rather get mesh WiFi, as this consistently provides a better connection than a W-Lan repeater.
How does Mesh WiFi work?
Mesh WiFi is designed to eliminate all the problems. Under Mesh you can imagine a network consisting of several nodes. Each of them is an access point to the network. The special thing about it is that the nodes communicate with each other to send data always on the best possible way from one of the nodes or to the connected WLAN device. Depending on the size of the living space, several access points can be used to provide WLAN coverage even for large apartments and multi-story houses.
In addition, the WLAN automatically changes frequency so that you always have the best Internet connection. In this way you can ensure that you always have a good Internet connection without interruptions.
Do Mesh WiFi and ReplayTV work together?
Since you need an internet connection to use ReplayTV it is important to clarify whether you can use Mesh WiFi and ReplayTV together.
It is absolutely essential that you have a stable internet connection to use ReplayTV well. On the other hand, your favorite TV shows will be interrupted because the Internet is not sufficient to play the show smoothly. Therefore, you need a solution for this problem.
With a repeater the problem can only be solved to some extent, because even with a repeater a loss of connection can happen. It is also possible that a repeater does not improve the internet connection enough to use ReplayTV without interruptions.
Mesh WiFi is perfectly suited for exactly such cases. With Mesh WiFi you have an easy and cost-effective way to improve your internet connection so that you can use ReplayTV without interruptions. Mesh WiFi and ReplayTV work great together and we recommend you try it.
