This in a recent e-mail from DIRECTV

 

If you access GenieGO™ through an iPhone or iPad, please be sure to update your GenieGO™ App before upgrading to iOS 7. This will ensure no interruption to your service. You can update your App anytime through the iTunes App Store.

 

If you have already upgraded to iOS 7, you will need to update the current GenieGO™ App on your mobile device and then re-register the device as new. Unfortunately, previously downloaded content will need to be re-downloaded. 

 

We apologize for this inconvenience. 

 

Sincerely, 

DIRECTV

ok so I've read through several GenieGo threads can't find what I'm asking, or can't search to find what I'm asking.

 

My iPad is a work issued one so it secures quite often, especially when 1-2 min elapses.

 

It seems that my downloads to the GenieGo stop or freeze when my iPad locks it self.

 

It also seems that uploads from GenieGo to my iPad stop or freeze when my iPad locks itself.

 

I cannot prevent the iPad from locking automatically.  

 

Any suggestions how to make downloads and uploads become un-interuppted?

Other than getting around the lock ups, no. The GenieGo should not require the app to be open when it's transcoding, so I am not sure what the Upload and Download means. It's one or the other (depending on which device is receiving or delivering) to get shows onto the iPad. There really isn't any uploading from the iPad to the GenieGo.

The current iPad version (with IOS7) tends to load a second or third one after screen lock.  Does it lock when you're watching a stream or a program?  If not, just select a few downloads and start playing a program while the others complete downloading.

I'll take a closer look at it later this weekend.  I'm loading up the ipad(s) and mac book air for the upcoming Hawaii trip.

Does the GenieGo stream over a wired connection yet? I'm having problems with the old Directb2PC program and want to replace it but use a wired connection to my desktop. WIFI is OK for my laptop but I have no WIFI on my desktop machine.

Are they any closer to allowing streaming over 4G?
