    Only took me about 10 minutes to do both the Uninstall and Reinstall so I think you can find 10 minutes to spare before the Super Duper Bowl!!! :lol:

    You get ~8.125MB/s or above downloads from nomad to your iPhone 4S or 5?

    Keep getting this error when fast forwarding.


    Weird it's not playing full screen for me can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I expect letterboxing but not windowboxing.

    No iPhone app can be maximized to fill the entire screen area of an iPad. You will always have unused screen area on all sides, even when viewing the app at 2x as shown in your screenshot. Once DIRECTV releases an actual iPad Nomad app we'll finally able to take full advantage of the available screen area not to mention having an interface designed for landscape versus portrait.

    So I got prompted to update to a new NOMAD version. I did so without any problems. Only weird thing is that now the 2x forward button is actually a rewind button.
    I kind of get the feeling that there isn't a lot of testing going on.

    If you're talking about the mobile app delete and re-download it.

    I assumed CM was talking about the PC app, which detected there was a new version available when I ran it a little while ago. It installed right over the existing app.

    Yes, very seamless with no loss of content.

    And both the PC client and iPad client skip 30 seconds with the >>| key.

    Yes. A very welcome addition to the iOS client, IMO, along with CCs on both.

    They just need to get the PC client to "stack" the 30SKIPs during "Watch Now", IMHO, because it takes about 12 seconds to resume playback after a single 30SKIP. Hopefully that's in the works for the next release.

    OK, I have another question: Does the nomad only work wirelessly? Or if I had the PC client on my wired desktop PC would it work there as well?

    I just got a promotional email from DirecTV about the Nomad. It is showing off the new streaming feature.

    I'm very glad to see this email. They wouldn't be sending out an email like this to DirecTV customers if they weren't fully supporting it.

    Looks like the Directv Nomad website has been updated.
    http://www.directv.com/technology/nomad

    Unless I am missing something, it looks like the only apps available are for iPhone/iPad.

    I can't find a way to download for Mac or PC.

    Here's the Mac: http://directv.vo.llnwd.net/e4/nomad/1.0.0-ReleaseCandidate.dmg

    Here's the PC: http://directv.vo.llnwd.net/e4/nomad/DirectvNomadSetup.exe

    Found those via the "2. Download App" section in the middle of the Nomad page.

    Same here! The streaming is a big addition to nomad! Very useful around the house where I don't have a TV, garage, basement, deck, etc. - or just don't want to turn on the large TVs.

    You can also start a recording on any channel and stream a program to the iPad while watching something else on the TV. . . my PIP.

    I had to look for this one, since it's only enabled on the PC Client on a recording -not streaming and not on the iPad at all. They may be trying it as a 'feature' since the 30 rewind on the stock player may not be changable.

    I don't use the PC client much since I carry the iPad more often.
