    Are you permitted to use multiple smartphones with a single GenieGo? I'd want to be able to transfer programs that I, my wife and my kids are interested in to our respective devices, not every program to one device. Can I do this or is it just one GenieGo to one device app that is allowed?

    I believe the limit is 5 devices.

    Yes, the limit is 5 registered devices. I currently have my iPad, my PC, my Android phone, my spouses's PC and my son's Macbook registered.

    Each device is registered the first time you connect to the GenieGo with it. When you reach 6 devices, you are prompted to replace one of the existing 5.

    Is there a way to see all the devices that are registered?

    When you try and register your sixth device you'll get a list of the five currently registered.

    You can see all the registered devices under "Equipment" on directv.com. Scroll down to the "Accessories" section and click on "My Accessories". This will list the GenieGo and all registered devices. It doesn't show the "Friendly Names" so it takes a little detective work to figure out which is which.

    Not a very accurate listing though. My Accessories lists seven active clients.
