    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


    Not sure I understand this, as the Nomad only works on WiFi only.

    You could have a PC or IOS device using wifi from a personal hotspot or phone tether.

    Does it see a tethered connection as the same as a wifi connection? I know that when downloading apps, the 50MB limit via cellular is still enforced if the device is tethered to a hotspot.

    I tried it out using my Verizon MIFi and saw no issues with what I watched; of course, I only watched about 5 minutes while I was testing. I'm going to try out (with MiFi) on an extended trip that I have planned next week.

    Perhaps not tethered, but don't units like Verizon's MiFi access the internet via Cellular/4G network and then broadcast to laptops/devices/etc. via a WiFi connection?

    Yes, tethering just turns your phone into a hotspot. You still have to be aware of your data caps.

    I realize that. What I was asking is if the GenieGo can see that your device is tethered as opposed to being connected to wifi. The Apple App app can tell the difference as it won't let you download an app greater than 50MB when tethered just as if you were using a cellular connection.

    Per post #85 above, the Verizon MiFi would be no different than tethering. The mobile device only sees a wifi Ethernet connection and I don't thing the geniego clients want to try to see whose network they're really on.

    I'm really not sure why D* pulled cell data network support other than enduring tons of calls about exceeding data caps.

    That's my guess.
    Too many clueless people running up hundreds of dollars in data charges, and swamping DirecTV CSRs with the demand that DirecTV pay their phone bills.
    Simpler and fewer headaches just to shut it down.

    I'd really like to see cell data support as I have unlimited on my phone but am capped on my MiFi.

    Then can the MiFi and tether from the phone? Isn't the tethering charge much less than the MiFi?

    I would like to be able to tether the phone but I am unable to use the phone as the hotspot; which is why I also have a MiFi. It's not ideal but it is what it is and I can't change it.

    I'm having trouble getting this to work with my Motorola NVG510 router.

    First, I downloaded the GenieGo app for my Mac and it says it's Nomad, not GenieGo.

    I then checked the System Info for the Port numbers and it doesn't show any ports.

    Reading through this thread I found that ports 8082-8083 are being used. So I set those in the firewall as you can see in the attached pics. But when I Test Out of Home Access, it shows Test Failed. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong? I have the HR20 DRV.

    The Mac client does not support OOH streaming yet

    I have 3 DVRs. Genie Go sees all three, but the list only shows recordings from two of the DVRs. The missing DVR is networked and set up for access by an external device. I can play recordings from that DVR on the other two DVRs. I tried resetting the genie go and that DVR. No luck. Any ideas how to get those recordings to show up on the genie go?
