    Just watched it again on that particular spot carefully multiple times and Edwards definitely said "MRV capability" not "compatibility."

    Which I take to mean having MRV or WHDVR service. For how can an install really be "MRV capable" without having the actual service activated?

    I fear you are right, thus my sad smiley about it in my initial post.

    My point was the PocketDISH is a user purchased standalone device which allows certain DVRs to transfer to that device only. IMHO, that is why it doesn't have a separate fee.

    Nomad will allow you transfer your recordings to seemingly any mobile device. The only thing similar is it will transfer recordings so in that one sense you’re right...they’re similar.

    The login information for that website is freely available. I won't post it or link it here, but it's not hard to find.

    And I wouldn't say it looks like an "oversized DECA" I'd say it looks more like a router.

    I can see Nomad allow streaming of a recording from a DVR to a remote device, but not too sure if it will transfer (i.e. make a second copy) of the recording, that would not go well with "copy once" contents.

    Don't forget .. to have a complete MRV infrastructure, you also need whole home DVR service. Tease all you want, but without the WHDS, you ain't got MRV. ;)

    Yes I know, thus my cryptic reference to

    "(or may locate logon info. by other means)" earlier in my initial post :)


    Not just an oversized "DECA," but a specifically looks like an oversized "BB DECA," which looks like a mini-router anyhow.

    It seems to me at least.

    Nope ...

    So maybe then.

    What specs do you need? It'll work with PCs, iPhone, and Android.

    What PC media player program does it use? Or do you install software like DIRECTV2PC?

    But to repeat again after replaying that part several times, Ray Edwards actual words at that point in the video were ...

    " ... the account must have MRV CAPABILITY", indicating WHDVR service. Not "compatibility."

    Which would not have even fit the context. For how can an account actually have MRV compatibility?

    A customer's installed system can be properly said to have MRV compatibility or some other such verbiage, but not account.

    The reason its required is the nomad must be connected to a router so it can get a IP. But like mrv they told us swm and deca was required. It works fine with ethernet. Also I've held nomad in my hands the current flavor is ethernet only.
