yeah i see that. it just doesnt seem like its all its cracked up to be i mean converting content is real time so 2 hours to transfer a 2 hour show, it deletes after 30 days (which isnt that big of a deal), need open port on router (mine is already full), $149!, Moving content to the nomad is passive, therefore the process will be halted if the DVR with the requested program is conducting a
Whole-Home session. (so if it is halted will i have to start over of what) seems like there is better options out there to stream content


Nomad is not meant to be a streaming product. It's not designed or marketed to stream. It's making content portable and there is a difference between that. Nomad is not designed for spur of the moment "oh I want to watch something on my phone or laptop from home". If this is what you expect or want then the nomad will not make you happy. If you want the ability to watch programs on the go that you will plan out in advance. I can think that most people could do 4-5 movies a night easily and 10-12 shows while they sleep. However in the world of instant gratification this is not meant to be the end all be all device.

Perhaps the correct thread would help.

It's very hard to comprehend what you write, with no caps, no sentence structure. I'd like to understand what you write!
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Well I'll just be perfectly honest, nobody cares what your definition of streaming is. It's a very well-defined term, you can't just decide you want to redefine it and expect anyone to follow you.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm closing this thread. It is my hope that when nomad does launch, that we can have an honest discussion of its merits without commenting on our fellow posters.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
