or the Slingbox app care is that you are connected to the network

Not sure what your are saying. Tapatalk typos I think.

 

Looks like my potential options to stream high quality video from my DVR to my PC like DirectTV2PC are:

 

Slingbox - not sure if I can sling to upstairs PC with highspeed ethernet connection.  Also some concern about Slingbox down converting 5.1 audio to 2.0 to my home entertainment center. That would really suck.

 

Genie to Go - I think it uses lots of compression and is wifi streaming only in the home.

 

ElGato EyeTV - Can't figure out what it is or how it would work.

 

 

Slingbox and Genie to go would offer me other options that DirecTV2PC didn't have like remote viewing outside.  Not that I really need that feature and I suspect quality would be poor.

Neither the GenieGo or the Slingbox apps cares how you connect yoru PC to the internet. both stream directly from the receiver using your LAN (while in home). The Slingbox app seems to allow better picture quality as DirecTV has throttle down the GenieGo to about 2Mbps IIRC. The Slingbox may go twice as much but nothing compared to DirecTV2PC

EyeTV I would say is on par with Geniego as far as PQ is concerned, tho the app is very rudimentary. The max EyeTV would stream in wifi is 2000Kbps

Sounds like no good options.  I have a support ticket into radeon on how to turn on screen capture protection but my hopes are not high.

Crap! Been using Directv2pc for years and had it working just fine on Windows 10...got a new SSD and did a clean install, now I can no longer get an activation code and my old ones no longer work. Any chance someone has an unused one they can PM me?

All of a sudden I was asked for my activation key.  Everything I tried failed.  Finally found a key that I guess either hadnt been used or was the original key I was using.  Either way it forced me to finally order a GenieGo.  I'd been using Directv2PC for years to watch shows while gaming.  Looks like its days are numbered.  Too bad too.  GenieGo works fine but I really liked the DVR interface of Directv2PC
