    So essentially is this useless if I'm trying to stream live sports? Considering I can't fast-forward to live TV once I record something and try watching it through the GenieGO app, is there any way to watch live sports through the GenieGO?
    Nope, only way is to recorded first and then watch it kind of "live-ish"

    I've watched lots of Nascar races or golf 'near' live. . . it's my PIP to be able to keep an eye on the sport but not dominate the TV.

    Yes. A few seconds delay- just start watching a few moments after you start the recording. Don't pause. But you can take it with you to the kitchen, john, where ever.

    But when I start the recording, I don't see it on my GenieGo list until 5-10 minutes later. Is that supposed to happen?

    On my system, it's usually 3-4 minutes.

    It can take a few minutes for the PlayList on the GenieGo to refresh.

    Hi All,

    I would just like to confirm that it is absolutely necessary to add my iPhone as a device for OOH streaming initially on my home wireless network, and that this initial step cannot be done remotely (WiFi / Internet connected network that is not my home network) by entering the GenieGo Serial Number in the GenieGo iPhone app.

    I am currently away from my home for an extended period, and would like to have my family install the GenieGo unit while I am away, to which I could then connect and enjoy the benefits. (All without my iPhone being connected to the home WiFi initially.)

    If anyone could clarify, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hello, Globe, welcome to DBSTalk!

    I am not sure if the iPhone can be activated for OoH while you're away, or not. I do know that setting up for OoH was not easy for me, so the first step would be to get it working at home, setting up the router port forwarding following the (lengthy) instructions on the DTVwebsite. Then maybe someone can try it OoH near home, and someone will come through here to answer the activation on iPhone part.

    Thanks Laxguy,

    I was hoping to confirm iPhone setup before purchasing the unit, to ensure it would work for me remotely without being there. If not, would probably delay the investment.

    Best regards.

    I think the deck is severely stacked against you. The GG client doesn't like getting initialized without being on the home network.

    Setting up the port forwards could be done by someone at your home or even you with remote access to your router.

    I'd plan a quick trip home or overnight my phone if someone there can do the setup. Good luck! And Welcome to DBSTalk!

    It's really worth it away from home.

    You need to be on your home network to activate the client app. If you are not on your home network, it will not find the GenieGo and thus will not be able to activate the client. If you try to set it up while OOH, it provides the option of searching for the GenieGo by serial number. However, that is a little misleading. I believe that option is really for if you are on your home network and the client is just not seeing the GenieGo. When you are OOH and trying to set up the client, since the client has not been set up for OOH, it will not be able to find your GenieGo.

    My GenieGo works fine, but even after a couple of 30 second red button reboots, it will still show only 4 of my 5 DVR's. Any suggestions?

    No, it is in my kitchen (HR23). It does show up with no problem on my whole home setup.

    I have found system info on both the iOS app and the PC application where it lists the 2 ports, but cannot seem to modify them....

    You can specify ports.

    When you first setup OOH, it asks you if you want to use the wizard or manual. Select manual setup and you can choose the ones that work for you. At least that's how it works on my Mac client. Just make sure you set up the ports in your router first for best results.

    Great tip! I was unaware of this until you mentioned it.

    I changed the port forwards in my router so that OOH would fail. This allowed me to get to the "manual" set-up screens (Windows client), shown below.
