I have wireless connection from my DSL modem to my ipadmini using Belkin wireless router.  Works fine; very fast.  How do I use this router to connect to my DVR 24-100? 

 

FYI  I also  have RJ45 cable connected to my 24-100 to use the tv apps.

The Ipad app will control the HR24 and you can get a Nomad from Directv to load shows on the ipad for viewing. The nomad has a watch now for watching shows without downloading, this works in home only. You mast downnload to the ipad to take programs out of your home.

I am using the iPadMini app.  Get message "There are no DVR's configured".  How do I configure them?

 

Thanks - John

The Ipad can not talk to the HR24, you must use the Directv Ipad app or the nomad app. To use the nomad app you must buy a nomad box from Directv.

Sounds to me like he is already using the DirecTV for Ipad App.  The app just isn't seeing his HR24.  I believe there is a setting on the DVR that might need turned on to "allow external control" or something like that.  I think it's in the whole home settings page, but I don't remember for sure and I'm not at home to check.


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."

I forgot about that. I think it is in the whole home setup. I will look when I get home.

Menu>Settings>Whole Home>External Device  Set external to allow.  That should fix it.
