    I'll guarantee you that the nomad picture quality on iPad, iPhone or PC will be MUCH better than any slingbox connection. And there are LOTS of locations (car, airplane, etc.) that your slingbox connection is worthless.

    I'm sure nomad quality is better..but it's not on demand.if you are in the car and didn't remember to transfer the show you want..our how about when you are away and want to see the new episode of house right now..

    HD sling box is pretty good for being able to remote control your TV.

    Hulu is getting close to on demand network TV...it'd just not new enough depending on the show.

    I want to bring all my content with me everywhere and never have to sync anything.

    OK, I'm now authorized. Is anyone else with a Mac getting a crash report?

    While I love this option & have worked for an internet provider (IP) company. My only concern is IP company's that cap bandwidth usage. While casual usage of this feature should be no problem , heavy users may run into roadblocks with their IP service.

    I will be using away from home on my iPhone(or iPad when I can afford one) once the app comes out, and only where there is free wifi. The Culver's here in Phoenix have 20/20 Mbps wifi! (as measure using the speedtest.net iPhone app)

    OK, so this finally showed up on my account and when I try and watch something I get a message saying that I have to update the player. I go through the update process and re-launch my browser (making sure to select the 32 bit version of IE) and I get the same message about updating the player. It's an endless do-loop. I've tried turning off my anti-virus during the install to no avail. Any ideas?

    I had to update my Adobe Flash player before the DIRECTV player would work for me.

    Thanks for the reply David...unfortunately that didn't work for me. I downloaded the latest Flash player and I'm still in a do-loop of DirecTV telling me I need to update my player.

    The attached screen shot comes when I close the play window, after successfully launching and playing several streaming files,

    I un-installed then re-installed the DirecTV player and now it works fine. Maybe it had to do with sequence. You must update Flash player before downloading the DirecTV player.

    Same here. But it's struggling to show an episode of Boss.

    (Also wondering when the rest of last year's eps. will be available. Now only first four.)

    Update:

    Video streaming is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.
    Error #1100

    Then a survey pops up. Going to take it.

    Is there any time frame for allowing live TV stations/programs to be included in Directv everywhere?

    Currently only the iPad app while connected to the home network has this function.

    Stream no so it's just the Nomad to copy them over to watch on portable devices.

    Other than via nomad, I don't know,and I'm not sure this will be done outside of the nomad box.

    Don't see how streaming recordings to the iPad would be any different than streaming to your PC (D*2PC)?

    There's no "live tv" streams on DirecTV everywhere? Thats pointless for me. What if I want to tune into the news or a live event from work?
