How to Turn Off Game Scores on PlayStation Vue’s DVR Recordings


Fans of soccer watching matchIf you recorded a football game over the weekend to watch later, you may have been upset to see the score as soon as you opened up the DVR recording.

Earlier this year PlayStation Vue added a feature to show the current score of games inside its guide. The downside to this is the fact that if you record a game to watch later it will show you the final score as soon as you open the DVR menu.

The good news is there is an option to turn off that feature. All you need to do is go to the PlayStation Vue website and sign in to your PlayStation Vue account. Click on your name in the top-right corner and select Settings. Inside the Settings page you will find an option called Sports Settings. Click on that and turn Show Scores to off.

Now the downside is this setting is an all or nothing setting. You cannot set it, for example, to show scores of games that are live but not on the DVR. You have the scores on for both DVR and the guide or off for both the DVR and the guide.

Hopefully Sony adds the ability to turn scores off for the DVR but to leave them on for the guide at some point in the future.

    funny thing is there was just a post a day or to from someone complaining about the scores showing on the Vue Support Forums.

    Couldn’t find setting on website. they moved it to the app in settings by the profile name. I am using the fire tv app.

    It seems like a great feature, but you have to think someone would have thought about the fact that if you dvr a game you don’t typically want to know the score. hopefully it can be an easy change, but it seems like they would have done it first if it was easy.

      thats why you can turn it off

        Yes i know that, but it is a good feature that would be useful outside of the DVR. Like he pointed out in the article, it would be nice if they added the feature to have it on for everything else but off for the DVR because at this point, you basically have to leave it off anytime you are going to record a game. Which brings me to my point, it seems like it is a rather obvious that you wouldn’t want to know the score of a DVR’d game so Im thinking it may not be as easy of a change as we would like it to be.

    I’m glad I checked in with Cordcutternews.com! Can’t begin to tell you how pissed I would have been if that happened to me during the NFL season! 🙂
