    well not sure what you actually meant by out of market games. if my local CBS is showing an "out of market game" the GenieGo would be able to stream it live or transcode it

    Out of market games are those you won't get w/o a subscription to something like NHL CI, MLB EI, MBA LP and NFL ST.

    Games on NBCSN, your RSN (not RSNs that are shown 'in the clear' because you subscribe to a sports package), NHLN, NFLN, ESPN etc. can be transcoded to the nomad.

    Of course the FAQ under the GenieGo only lists these items that can't be watched on your GenieGo:

    OTA is missing from that list

    I agree, OTA should be on that list.

    And what the lady from "the office of the president" told me was that the nomad/GenieGo was programmed to do was treat the sports subscriptions as PPV.

    But it sure would have been nice had we been told that when it first came out.

    DirecTV considers all sports league packages to be Pay Per View, so it will not allow you to use the Nomad to watch them. They won't tell you this, but you'll find out AFTER you spend $150 and your NHL Center Ice recordings won't work. That's why I'm switching to NHL Game Center Live for next season. Idiotic!

    That's interesting insofar as it says the GenieGo won't display items that can't be watched, but it does display NHL Center Ice recordings, you just can't watch them (the transcode just goes into an infinite loop, and if you watch live, you'll get an error that the DVR is busy).
