    Yes, it may be awhile until Directv's Nomad is ready for the IPAD but you would think with it's popularity that they would want it to be compatible and viable for that device.

    Just takes time.

    FiOS has an iPhone remote control app, iPad "coming soon". They're promising to actually stream video to an iPad next year. They demo'd it to reporters in August.

    Cablevision is reportedly planning to offer iPad streaming as well, but only inside the home.

    Well, I got my Slingplayer loaded onto my Droid yesterday and it works Great!!!

    Better than I thought it would look.

    Now if I can couple that with Nomad hopefully giving us the ability to Download our Directv DVR Recordings onto my PC then I will be Good To Go when traveling. :D

    Looks like Dish is taking the Sling approach with something similar...only...I still have to question both the idea of attempting live TV via a WIFI or 3G connection, as well as viewing on a 3-4" screen.

    I hoping for a leaner and cleaner deployment with NOMAD.

    I suspect there will be as many differences as similarities.

    I'm generally not very happy with Directv these days. Not that there's a better choice. But, nomad could get me back in my happy place.

    Then again, given that Directv (like all the other players) likes to nickel and dime on everything, I'm sure they'll find a way to piss me off with nomad.

    So being that I am Very Happy with Directv and yes they do have some problem areas but with WHDVR Service (MRV) and 7 DVRs with 13 TBs of Storage Capacity I am a Very Happy Camper!!!

    Yes it will cost you probably $100 for the Nomad Device itself and probably $5 per month Fee to use it but to have the Ability to Offload a hundred hours of my DVR Recorded Content onto my PC is just the Cherry on top of the Icing on the Directv Cake!!! :)

    So just what is your beef with Directv as I must be missing something somewhere???

    I haven't been on the forum in a long time. I actually checked it out today to see if there was any news on D* coming out with a remote control app for iPhone/iPad (after reading about Comcast).

    Icing on the cake would be an iPhone/iPad app version of Directv2pc. A huge bonus would be the ability to store/cache content on my iPhone/iPad. Personally, I would never buy some new nomad device, not to mention paying a fee to use it.

    My irritation with D* started with MRV. I was a VERY happy beta user. All nicely connected through MY networking equipment. Then it got turned off because they want me to pay a fee for the service. I know, it's just $3. But, it's one more damn fee on top of all the others.
