Works great on my GS3!!!!  Very happy that I can now be a power user of my nomad/geniego.  Prior to the Android app, I only used this on my wife's iPad, and even then it was to entertain our daughter on flights and road trips.

Great news.  I've been waiting to get the Nomad (now GenieGo) until the Android software became available.  I guess that, now, I'll wait until I order a Genie after, the HR-44's become widely available, and see if I can get that bundled in as well.  Otherwise, since Solid Signal currenly has it for $30 less than DireTV does ($119 vs. $149), I'll get it there.

Unavailable for my Transformer TF700 or wife's Transformer TF100.  Installed fine on my Motorola Razr Maxx.  Had to sideload it on both tablets and now working fine.

 

Don't understand why it's flagged as incompatible..

Hmmm, says the Transformer is supported.  I will pin this thread and post it as Issues and Discussion.

 

I'll try my TF700 when I get home.

Uncheck "Enable Superuser" in SuperSU and it should work. That usually works for any program that plays games with rooted users.

I use Superuser, not SuperSu, but I found a way around it.

How did you get it to install on the tf101.  I can't find how to download it on that device since I keep being told it is incompatible.

Hey....while you are in the code...can you make it save to SD cards?  :righton:

well here is the thing on that one, 

it was build like that for a reason, and heres why, your internal memory aka "internal sdcard" which is not actually an sdcard its just flash memory is and will always be at /data/media/ 

so you create an app using the code for SQLiteDatabase and its just going to save that app data ( in this case the downloaded videos ) to the Android/data location on the "internal sdcard" /data/media.

now as one who has had many android devices in my hand, the external sd card is almost ALWAYS a different mount point from manufacturer to manufacturer so to write an app to save to exteranl sd card is a heck of a lot more difficult.

That said, there are plenty of methods and apps avaible to "move" apps and their app data to the external sd card

you can use apps like link2sd, App2sd and so on, a quick google search will find more. and as for methods you can also do something similar to this  http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2285221

 

the last method, and if you have formated your external card correctly would be my fav and easiest. symlink the /data/media/Android/data/com.directv.application.go.production folder to somewhere on your external sd card. and this method is great when you have LARGE games for something eating up your limited internal memory.

 

and all of this is said just from what i know/remember. some of the info may be off. just its been a while since ive actually written an app for android 

 

hope that helps bud
