Maybe I like to load up the iPad with shows and delete them from the DRV. Why do I need them sitting on the DVR clogging up the playlist when I planned to watch them on the road in the first place? Just because YOU may do something a certain way does not make it any more or less logical for someone to want to do it another way. Just like youtube and pandora. IMO they are 100% useless and illogical on a DVR. I have a computer for that stuff. But some people like to listen to music on their TV and watch crappy youtube videos blown up to 65".
That works fine as long as you watch the shows within 30 days of transferring them to your ipad. When the show get's deleted off your DVR it deletes it off your Nomad device, but it does not delete it from your iPad, iPhone, computer, or any other device you transferred it to. It will stay on there until you delete it, or once it reaches 30 days from when it was first transferred it will delete iteself.
If you leave the recording on your DVR it will stay on your Nomad device as long as there is room (I believe when you run out of room it starts deleting the oldest recordings first). If it is still on your Nomad you can transfer it again to any device if it got deleted off that device because it was on there longer than 30 days.
Most of us here think the 30 day limit has been a condition the channels have required. They don't want people recording shows and then transferring them to their computers to hold on to forever. Doing so would kill DVD/Blu-Ray/download sales and rentals.
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."
