    You are a genius! Yes, it passed the test! Now I need to try it from outside my home tomorrow. Thank you!

    I left both TCP and UDP enabled just to be safe. Hope that doesn't matter.

    It won't affect performance, but you don't need to open up any UDP ports.

    There are a few standard programs that you can specify the source port. . . Telnet / 23, SSH / 22, RDP / 3389 but don't specify it unless you know for sure.

    Some routers use 'ANY', some use 0 or 0.0.0.0 or blank for the source port.

    You can confirm that by running the Genie PC client, stream a program and enter NETSTAT in a dos window.


    TCP 192.168.10.112:52477 192.168.10.87:8082 TIME_WAIT


    TCP 192.168.10.112:52491 192.168.10.87:8083 ESTABLISHED

    I just wanted to stop by and thank litzdog and nevski for their efforts on this. I found this thread a few weeks ago and saved nevski's instructions. When I got my GenieGo, last week, I followed the instructions and OOH works perfectly for me.

    I love this place.

    Glad your GenieGo is up and running.

    I have the same router and have done the port forwarding and I still can't get the OOH access to work. I keep getting a message saying the HDDVR is busy and cannot stream right now, then GenieGO/131. Any suggestions??

    Does it stream in-house from that dvr? You might try a 30 second reset on GG and a menu reset on the DVR.

    After you go to the DirecTV app, go to the Settings and see if Out of Home Access has been enabled. If so, then the router is setup properly. I don't believe that this is what is causing the busy DVR message.

    I have the same router and the same problems and error message "GenieGo /131".

    Streaming works in house. OOH access test says router is setup for GenieGo Out of Home access. But does not work out of home.

    It streams everything from the house just fine. Its only when I am not connected to my home WIFI that it won't work. I had a hard time getting the genie go to even work. Had to set up port forwarding etc. So frustrating and directv is no help.

    OOH access is saying that its enabled. All of my shows come up in the genie but they just won't play.

    Just thinking out load, but could this have to do with hddvr's going into energy save mode and internally turning off. I am at work and the genie go app on my iphone and ipad see the record shows but can't play. A show that just finished recording can be seen. error 131 says that the HD DVR is currently busy and cannot support streaming. Just a thought.

    Out of the blue I click Genie go on my ipad and it works. WTF. two hours ago I got GenieGO/131. I am sure DirectTv will screw it up.

    I wish I had seen this earlier!

    I spent hours with the wizard & manually configuring, DTV live chat and DTV Tech Support both told me to contact Veriozn FiOS Support or Actiontec Support.

    Chaning to "Any" solved my problem instantly!

    Thank you!
