I agree, OTA should be on that list. 

 

And what the lady from "the office of the president" told me was that the nomad/GenieGo was programmed to do was treat the sports subscriptions as PPV.

 

But it sure would have been nice had we been told that when it first came out.

is a DirecTV restriction, perhaps due to contracts....

DirecTV considers all sports league packages to be Pay Per View, so it will not allow you to use the Nomad to watch them.  They won't tell you this, but you'll find out  AFTER you spend $150 and your NHL Center Ice recordings won't work.  That's why I'm switching to NHL Game Center Live for next season.  Idiotic!

Of course the FAQ under the GenieGo only lists these items that can't be watched on your GenieGo:

 

That's interesting insofar as it says the GenieGo won't display items that can't be watched, but it does display NHL Center Ice recordings, you just can't watch them (the transcode just goes into an infinite loop, and if you watch live, you'll get an error that the DVR is busy).
