hi,unfortunately, ipad remote control function is only for that purpose and it cannot be view on the ipad itself.some cable or satellite company does have an app for it.what tv provider do you have?
for example direct tv have app like namad apphttp://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/technology/nomad
give me few minutes
unfortunately, Att Uverse app doesnt have the function for watching recording show on ipad or iphone due to licensing.you can only what on demand
if you have any other let me know. thank you
if not, please click accept and have a great day
