Solutions for all your recorder and player problems


The definition of digital recorders and players will tell you that these are electronic devices intended for recording and playing back video content. Once recorded, this digital content could be saved to a memory card or disk drive. It could also be streamed – digital media players are also in this category, and they allow users to connect their devices to the internet for easy access to the shows and movies they want.


Types of recorder, player, and streaming devices include set-top boxes with built-in DVR, digital camcorders, and digital media players like Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Roku streaming devices.


Taking your electronics to a technician anytime a problem crops up can be a waste of both time and money. Luckily, you have access to the Experts on JustAnswer anywhere you have a phone or a working internet connection. These technicians are available to assist you 24 hours a day, and can provide customized guidance geared to your specific issues. Ask follow-up questions, and approve payment to your Expert only when you're completely satisfied.
