    question on removing VMWARE did you "uninstall it" or just close it down?
    What OS is you PC ?
    My Directv2pc only sees my hr24 never my hr34.
    my pc= window 7 enterprise 64 bit and
    vmware 8.0.2 build-591240
    I keep having to record on the hr24 if I want to view .. waiting for a solution . But cannot uninstall vmware .. as I need it more.

    Software - Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 build 7601 (64-bit)
    I uninstall vmware. I had seen somewhere that the vmware causes problems with Directv2pc. I install Directv2pc on a 4 year old HP laptop running Vista 32 bit and it works. NOW my daughters 8 month old HP laptop with Windows 64 bit comes up with a green screen. I haven't figure that one out yet.:)

    I really like directv2pc and use it all the time. I have both of my dvrs hardwired into my dlink dir-855. I can watch hd no problem on both of my laptops via wifi. The only issue I have is when I use my desktop that is hardwired into the router. With a multi-monitor setup if I try to say watch a sporting event on directv2pc and online game at the same time I will get disconnected from my game. It is like directv2pc takes up too much bandwidth. My computer has a gigabit connection and so does the router. Any advice is appreciated.

    I wonder if it's a copy protection issue. Does the online game work at all for even a short period of time?

    The game works for a few seconds then it says that there is a problem with your connection. It is like dtv2pc is taking up all the bandwidth.

    Also, it would be nice if dtv2pc had its own volume control. I hate that it adjust the volume for all audio on your computer.

    As 16floz470ml stated above the in program volume control turns the master volume up or down. Not the individual program volume.

    I have the same problem on my i3-2125 desktop processor.
    Is there not a fix for this problem?

    Here is an issue that my searching has not found any answers to. Directv replaced an HR-21 that failed. The HR-21 was my primary receiver that I used for DT2PC. Thus it was the last receiver that the software had used to stream from. I replaced and it when I opened DTV2PC, the app just hung in a white background. The menu and back buttons are there but nothing happens when you click on them. I uninstalled and reinstalled booted the PC prior to reinstalling. I've deleted PowerDVD and all related cyberlink software. I've come to the realization that the software is stuck looking for the old receiver and just hangs. other than doing a complete format of my PC, any suggestions. I don't use SWM or DECA, its old school CAT5 to router to PC. I've rebooted every thing in the chain and restored system defaults.

    If what you are suggesting is true (and I could see that being a possibility), it's possible that there could be a registry setting that is still there after you uninstalled/reinstalled the software. Go ahead and uninstall the application using RevoUninstaller. There is a portable version you can download so nothing needs to be installed (just unzip it to a folder on your desktop). When you uninstall DirecTV2PC with this app, it will use the app's uninstaller, but will then go through and clean up leftover files and leftover registry settings. After that is done, reboot, and reinstall DirecTV2PC.

    I've swapped DVRs around for a while and haven't run into this problem.
    I doubt this was due to removing a DVR.
    If it was so, I'm sure I would have seen this before, which all the mix and matching I've done.
    "For grins" I just checked to see if my HR34 works and by god it does. :)
