You will Love it as I just got back from Skiing in Vail/Beaver Creek Area and on the flight out and back we had no Video on the plane (old Northwest Airplanes acquired thru the Delta Merger) but I had my Nomad and it worked and looked Great!!!

ENJOY!!! :D


Thanks! I am really looking forward to using it, it's something I've wanted to be able to do for a while and I think it'll be very useful.

Trigger pulled!! nomad is on it's way. I'm really looking forward to it, especially since we're flying with our 2.5 year old later this month. Finding Nemo, Tangled, and Shrek will be the first things I prepare.

Plus with the recent DirecTV for Android Tablets app release, I'm sure the nomad for Android is coming "soon". :lol:

First day with the nomad, arrived yesterday. All in all, I'm very happy with it. Software is slick and works well. Transcoding does take a while, but after that the quality is very good. Only thing really missing is a native iPad app, but the iPhone one is totally usable.

Looking forward to my next trip :)

Got the nomad. Very easy hookup. I hooked it up at lunchtime and then came back after work and checked out the app on the iPad. Streaming from DVR to iPad works nicely. I will probably mess around with putting files on the iPad this weekend. I'm looking forward to showing my wife how to use the in home streaming from DVR so she can watch her shows (The Talk, etc) on her tablet instead of on our LR TV.

Theory: There will not be a nomad native iPad app per se. Now that they have in home streaming from DVR to iPad as a feature, I think DIRECTV is working on integrating the nomad app & the DIRECTV for iPad app into a single experience.

That would be my hope. One app to control it all...

Howdy,

Has anyone successfully taken a nomad file from a pc and transfered it to another pc (with nomad on it of course) and played it successfully? I ask becuase i am looking for a way to watch recorded programs while travling.
Thanks

Just a tidbit here folks;

Saw today DIRECTV has officially changed the name of "nomad" and its related apps to the umbrella term of "GenieGo." :rolleyes:

Pronounced just like its written, "Genie"-"Go," with no pause between the words

Guess because its similar to "TIVO-to-go" service and the Genie is to eventually be the centerpiece for all new installs, they renamed it this way without the risk of a patent infringement on TIVO's name brand for their service.

DIRECTV abandoned the DIRECTV2Go trademark in 2008. GenieGo sounds like something a toddler would say about the relationship between them and their diapers. I guess I'm not spellbound by the magic of Genie.

Tying it to the Genie is unfortunate as it works with DIRECTV Plus HD DVRs as well (such as it is).

Then again...it would only matter if one has DirecTV service...which is not the case for the post above.

The same case could be made for the lame name Hopper.

Putting that much value on one name or another is incredibly silly.

Hopper still only applies to the server box be it a Hopper or Hopper with Sling. Downloading has never required an outboard box with DISH.

DIRECTV started with HMC (from 2005 to 2012) and rebooted to Genie on a single product and appears to be prepending Genie onto everything nowadays: Genie, Genie Mini (not to be confused with the relatively small HR44) and GenieGo.

Putting that much value on one name or another is incredibly silly.

That too. Do you suppose they'll lobby the few RVU manufacturers to add the Genie logo to their enabled gear?

I predict that the "no more inconvenient cable boxes" and "get ""up to"" 3X more HD recording capacity than cable" campaigns aren't going to go well. DIRECTV certainly does love the footnoted claims.

Can you show me an ad from Dish that doesn't have them?

Ba da bing, ba da boom.

The naming discussion is not only miniscule in relevance, but off topic here in this thread.
