    When you are in a location that supports streaming, a steady 1-1.2 Mbps upload and download speed will provide you the best image quality, equivalent to what you'd see streaming on your home LAN.

    Thanks. So looking at years for a Mac solution or another technology form DIRECTV by the time they get this one out, lol.

    there is a current GenieGo app for Mac OX but it does not support OOH streaming yet, is slated for this fall

    There is a PC app for the GenieGo that was updated today to support OOH

    Well, there's my problem with freezes right there. From my end to the internet my upload speed is a little less than 1 Mbps. One of the prices I pay for living out in the "boonies". I talked to a Qwest repairman about it once, and he told me not to complain to "headquarters" about it - said it's the best I could get - and since Qwest had a policy of 100% customer satisfaction if I complained they would tell me that I couldn't get DSL and shut me off!!!!??

    Passing along some info that may help others.

    I had to port forward both my uVerse modem and Netgear router.

    uVerse modem has ports 8082 and 8083 forwarded to public IP address.
    Netgear router has the same ports forwarded to the Nomad/GenieGo hardware reserved internal LAN address (192.168.x.x)

    The above combo was necessary for the streaming to work out of home.

    Is the Uwho a gateway? or just a modem?

    Well, not tonight. SOL on both iPad and Mac, even though the set up set it was set.

    I am confused about the Mac version. The one I downloaded from the app store this morning is the same version ( 1.3.080 (71717)) we've had for months, at least it looks the same. It is, however, ca. 8 Megs vs. the test version of ca. 12 Megs.......

    I was able to setup mine last night. Although I have a Buffalo router running a version of DD-WRT so I had to locate where the settings need to be since D*TV didn't have the screen shots for me. I'll post mine here so maybe would help anyone else running DD-WRT... took a router reboot and a few extra minutes for GenieGo app to start working properly. Going to test everything is workingn properly out of home later today.

    I also have a Buffalo router--an older G version---and the Genie PC app found the router and opened the ports without problem.
    It seems to be working on laptop, iPad and iPhone, although I had to delete and reinstall the app on the latter. It was stuck on loading content, and the problem repeated even after rebooting the phone. Reinstall fixed it.
    Haven't had a chance to check it on wifi outside the house yet. I have a strange craving for Starbucks today.

    You may be disappointed in performance at Starbucks.

    Good idea. Here are the settings I used for my Vonage VDV-23. Pretty straightforward, as you can see. Changes took place as soon as i hit "apply".

    I'll try to test it this weekend. I don't expect it to work on my office, which blocks ports. Can't use my Slingbox there.

    For those streaming while using limited data plans. It seems to average about 1.5MB per minute of streaming. So say around 350MB for half hour show. That's what I'm seeing

    You could also use the Port Range Forwarding option and just specified the two ports as the beginning and ending port numbers.
