You are only able to access your recordings from DirecTV HD-DVR's and HD receivers that are hooked to your network. You are not able to access recordings from a PS3 or Android or any other third party device.

Not quite true. You can use DirecTV2PC to watch recordings on a PC or laptop if they meet the requirements of the programs.

Also you can use the Nomad to create protable copies to watch on an iPhone, iPad, or PC. Android and Mac support I believe are supposed to be added to the Nomad at some point.

As of right now there is no way to watch recordings on a PS3 though.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

You are right, forgot about DirecTV2PC since I only use Macs.
