DirecTV2PC 'replaced by' Nomad?
Posted 04 February 2012 - 06:23 PM
I've done some searching and can't find any real evidence, but is the lack of recent support for D2PC just D*'s way of saying pay for a hardware device that we now sell instead of using the free software program?

nope, the 2 serve different purposes. It's just an issue with the hr34 because it's new and they are still working out all the kinks.
As I am new to the satellite world, can you explain the different purposes for me? They both allow remote viewing of recorded content, only the Nomad is downloaded to the device and allows for offline viewing; while the D2PC program is streaming while connected to the local network. Is there more than that?

DirecTV2PC only works while connected to your home network.

With DirecTV2PC, you're simply viewing the remote DVR's recordings via your home network. No files are copied to your PC. DirecTV2PC is very similar to the Whole Home DVR service that enables remote Receivers/DVRs to view recordings from a networked DVR.

I love D2PC. I've got a 50" plasma in my living room, but I probably watch more content off my DVR on a 23" LCD in my office.

those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

As far as I know there will be no further updates to DIRECTV2PC. However, I believe that changes are being made to the HR34 software to work with the current version of DIRECTV2PC.
So I'm waiting for a software push to my receiver instead of a program update. Interesting... ok, well I will let folks know when mine starts to work.

Also, I have the issue with my HR34 that I have to reset it to get it to turn back on and work often enough that my wife is starting to question my switch from Comcast.
I'm missing DTV2PC very much so far. Strongly considering Nomad as well.
