Yes, hit PM to the left, and then type in the name of the intended recipient. (Which I just did to PM you.)

I don't see PM on the left.

It would be nice to delete individual search entries in the list instead of having to clear all.

Just a quick question.

I constantly get "Our system is currently unavailable. Please try again later" when trying to access the streaming portion of the ipad app. All other functions are working correctly. I have removed the program and reinstalled, rebooted the ipad etc and still can not get it to work. My ipad2 is running ios 5.0.1.

Does the receiver have to have access to the internet or just my home network for this to work?

Any ideas?

Your home LAN....which needs to have a good internet connection, as it's all streamed from afar. So you need both operational. I've not seen that message before, so can't tell much beyond this.

Don't hold you breath on being able to watch recordings. That is what the nomad is for. Transcoding needs to take place, and neither the DVR or iPad can do it on the fly.


Really? What DIRECTV2PC? I've used that on my laptop at home before and it seems to work. I know from other threads that it's glitchy but seeing how everything else receiver related (remote functions, list by rec, etc) works so well I would think they could figure it out. Besides I thought nomad was more about watching your recordings outside of your home network?

Apparently they still don't see a feature over a year old fit to include in their app. Multitasking so I must wait for it to connect them change to the screen and update currently watching. It should just check to login like once a day and just auto open to the way it last ways and immediately update currently watching.

Many of us have been asking for that since day 1. I suspect it is a shortcoming of their use case design.

It's an iOS problem. If they can figure out a workaround, I am sure we will see it someday. They have made some progress. I no longer have to wait for the play list to reload every single time I start the app. It cahces it now for some length of time.

Yeah unfortunately iOS uses a very liberal definition of the word "multitasking" and it's not really compatible with an app that needs to maintain a constant real-time connection to the STB. Obviously there are ways around it, GPS apps find a way, but at least speaking for my GPS app it uses a lot of power running in the background and never stops until you force-quit.

GPS apps can run in the background due to Apple allowing them to run in the background. Effectively, the developer asks, Apple says ok, and then it is limited to certain APIs, such as the location manager sending updates to the app.

Battery drain is due to the GPS setting highest accuracy in the location manager.

Other applications can run for up to 10 minutes in the background, usually to complete networking tasks such as uploading a video.

Other than that, applications are suspended when put into the background. They get a chance to save application state, etc. Applications in the background may be quit by the OS for memory purposes, but they stay in the application tray (double tap home button) as a recent applications list.

1) Did you check the settings on the receivers to see if it's enabled for access?
2) No you won't be able to record from locals.
3) How long is extended? I've done 2.5 hrs fine, but 6 hrs didn't work for me either.

Only two things I can think of: REboot your router. If no joy, set each DVR to a fixed IP. The ones I use are within range of the router, but ten places above what gets used in my household.
