I have a macbook air running OSX version 10.8.2 and Nomad version 1.0.0. Any further ideas or do I need to call DirecTV?

If it can't communicate with the Server it can't Verify that your Account is in good standing, verify your DVRs, etc.

Do you have an iphone or ipad or different computer to try? Does your HD DVR pass the networking tests?
When uninstalling the Mac OS client software, also go to <username> Library/Preferences/com.directv.application.mac.nomad.production.plist <-- delete this file.
Also delete the Nomad folder at - Library/Application Support/Nomad.
Change to a different ethernet cable connecting your nomad to the router directly.
Do a hard reset of the Nomad - hold the reset button down for 30 seconds.

When you had the Nomad working, was it with 10.8?

Merg gives good advice --- turn off firewalls and test.

Just got off the phone with D* again and they are saying it is my firewall. No way that is the problem so I am stuck. I can see everything on my network and all have the correct addresses and sub masks. Basically I have to contact Comcast and Apple. D* says it isn't their problem!
Did you find and delete the files mentioned earlier? That's fixed it for me before.

Hi all, I have turned off all of my firewalls, retested and still no go. Laxguy, I did delete all of those files as well and reinstalled and still no go. I can see the DVR and the nomad on my network and ping both of them successfully. I am running out of ideas.
My experience on Macintosh generally indicates that deleting and reinstalling the application does nothing. It's the preferences and sometimes hidden files that need shooting in the head.
When you launch nomad, what message do you get?

If you are using a comcast provided router, try replacing it with a standard router. Also, I have heard of internet providers securing their DNS (like DNSSEC) networks by creating their own private network unbeknownst to you. If they are doing this then the nomad would not appear to be on your private network.
Have Comcast stop the secure DNS service.

I read that some verizon users had this problem when using the verizon cable modem router combo.
Did a search on Xfinity Comcast service and saw that they use DNSSEC. Sounded familiar so took a shot in the dark.
The technical support site of D* shows threads about lots of people having trouble w/ the Nomad. It needs quite a few ports open, multi-casting turned on, UPNP turned on, and you need the DVR settings at allow sharing on. Seems Win 7 64bit has problems w/ the Nomad. Switches complicate matters more.
Mine is working great. TW roadrunner Cisco cable modem --> Apple Extreme router --->Nomad, and Airport Express ---> DVR. DVR is wireless to the Extreme router. DVR is fixed ip outside of DHCP range. Nomad ip is not fixed and within DHCP assignable range.
It would be interesting if the OP could try another device or computer as the Nomad client.

So after reading this thread about Firewalls causing problems I noticed mine was turned On (which I normally leave Off) so I turned if Off and then Rebooted my Nomad and it has been working for over 2 hours now.
I hope this has corrected my problem.
