    Please note that this is impacting all client platforms and both new and existing clients...it appears to be an authentication server issue.

    Hopefully we see it rectified soon.

    I'm being told the same thing as all of you, that it's not your hardware, it's DIRECTV, and they are working on it.

    Even if they fix their problem today, I have to wait until I'm off the road and back home to connect and get that fix. Both my PC and iPad have shows on them, but I can't access them right now.

    Same issue here. Should have known not to even bother contacting DIRECTV. Waste of time. Should have just come here to confirm if others were having the same issue as nothing had changed on my end here at the house. Clearly I'm not alone. Guess watching content on-the-go tonight is not going to happen. :-(

    The Nomad has never worked well & since it seems to have not sold well I don't think Directv puts much effort into it. I would suggest if you paid for the unit, say you want to keep the unit and ask for your money back no matter how long you've owned it. You never know!

    Given the number of devices that nomad could work with and the upcoming gadget-heavy shopping season, I doubt that DIRECTV has given up on the nomad.

    Apple did something remarkably similar (Wi-fi wasn't working because an element of the apple.com site was down) with iOS6 last week and they seemed to get a lot more slack.

    Yes, I realize the nomad has had a rocky road, but that seems to be the case with most clean slate products these days (even if they did announce a mobile product six+ years ago... ;))

    My wife is reporting that the PC client at home is now working. She tried when she got home: Account disabled. Tried a little while ago and go on, but no programs listed on Nomad. Then she tried again and all shows listed on the Nomad and previously recorded shows on the PC are showing up.

    Now to get my iPad working.

    I totally disagree. I have never had an issue up until this little hiccup. I think theNomad would be more popular if Directv marketed it properly. Technically it works great. I have bee very pleased.

    Also my Nomad seems to be working fine now on my IPad.

    On the phone with DirecTV. They are still having some issues "but expect those corrected within 24 hours."

    What iPad are you using and what OS? I'm using an original iPad, so I'm using iOS5.

    Edit/add: And you've been lucky. You might want to review this thread (and the ones before it) to see some of the problems they've had with the Nomad. http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=3015234#post3015234. Technically, I don't think it is ready for them to market it any more than what they are right now.

    I am using 6.0 on my IPad 2. Have used the service since December and(crossing fingers) have been problem free up until today. Also have used on my laptop with no issues.

    Deleting and reinstalling the Nomad app got it working on my iPad (IOS5).

    My wife got her iPad working that way also. But all previous shows were deleted. I'm going to give it a try on my Nomad, but I'm on the road so if my shows are deleted when I uninstall/reinstall, I won't be able to download anything until I return home.

    Second business trip this year where I've lost access to nomad shows on my iPad.

    DIRECTV must have corrected the issue on their end. Back in business with all my mobile devices after an uninstall/reinstall of the Nomad apps.

    It appears so.

    I successfully transcoded 4 programs using the PC client (not reinstalled).

    I fired up the nomad app on my Mac last night and it took right off. No re-install or trashing required. I wonder what the diff was. :shrug:

    My iOS apps were a different story. I had to reinstall all both of them.

    I didn't re-try the Mac until this afternoon. I think since it was already "fried" it needed to be reset. Funny thing was that after I did the firsts reinstall, it never asked for my login info and went right back to the error screen. That's when I tried to delete anything Nomad related from the whole laptop and start fresh.

    Oddly enough for me, my iPad and desktop computer didn't need any modification. I did not open them at all yesterday when the problem was first noted, but tried them today after the "fix" was in. Both opened right up and still had all the saved programs ready to play.

    Got home tonight. Fired up my iPad Nomad app and it logged right in. Had to download my shows again. (I had uninstalled the app and reinstalled it last night per Titan25's suggestion -- that worked, but since I wasn't on my home network, I couldn't log in/update shows).

    Daughter (at college) had no problems with her Mac & Nomad. I think only those that had their systems on Monday night/Tuesday AM were impacted by this glitch.
