Ok, I have a question about this nomad. I thought at first it was something that would allow me to transfer DVR recordings to a mobile device while at home and then I could watch them somewhere else, like a mall or in a hotel room. Now looking at it it appears to only work within the home network so if I left home I couldn't watch anything. Which way is right?
Your first assessment is mostly correct. You need to be on your home network to download from the DVR to Nomad and from Nomad to your mobile device but then you can watch the shows anywhere after download.
