Watching DVR-recorded programs on iPad, confused :(
Posted 13 June 2012 - 07:16 PM
The iPad sees both units and all seems well. I see where it allows to stream allowed content and live TV.
Except for one thing, how to watch recordings on the DVRs to the iPad. The iPad software allows for choosing a previously recorded program then watch it on TV. Great. But I don't want to watch it on TV, want to watch it on the iPad. In our own house.
Is this a software limitation? Restriction? Is this even possible? Does D* make you use the Nomad just to stream your own recordings in your home? I don't want to take recordings with me, just watch them on the iPad.

Check out the directv everywhere app for iPad. If I understand you correctly I think it does what you want to do.
The OP has the iPad app but wants to view recordings on the iPad. Only the nomad or sling box like device allows this at the moment.
The iPad app does offer live tv streaming in the home and certain channels/shows are available outside the home as well.
I think that, one day, we'll see streaming in the home to mobile devices via the nomad device. I might be waiting a really long time though...
