I am. I've tried to download two different hockey games. Neither completed the "preparing" process so neither could be downloaded. I did a manual record on NHL CI channel (set for 3 hours; not 6). Shows recorded fine and can be watched on our home DVRs. I watched one game get down to about 58 minutes left of preparation and then it reset and went back to 3 hours ( and a few minutes). It did that twice before I cancelled the download. DVR that recorded the game was not in use during the prep time. I really want to figure this out; one of the main reasons for getting a nomad was to watch late night hockey games the following day when not at home.
anybody had any issues with using nomad to put sporting events on their devices? i dvr'd the rangers - canucks game last night and it wouldn't complete the preparing / download process.
a few questions / theories:
- i'm not an nhl center ice subscriber. the game is part of the free preview going on until the 24th. is it possible that the nomad is doing some sort of authorization check and, seeing that i'm not a subscriber, not allowing me to put the game on my ipad?
- i know it's been mentioned before that nomad doesn't allow the transfer of pay per views. does directv categorize all sports subscriptions as pay-per-view, and therefore any sporting event recorded from mlb extra innings, nfl sunday ticket, nhl center ice, etc. cannot be moved onto your device of choice?
- is this prohibition just for sporting events shown on seasonal subscriptions, or is it league / sport-wide? as an example, should i be able to record and transfer hockey games recorded off of nbc, nhl network, versus, fox sports west / prime ticket, etc., or does directv's deal with the nhl preclude any games from being transferred?
EDIT/Added: On my nomad System Info, it says I have 10.24 GB free of 15.26GB. Should be enough room for a 3-hour show, correct?
