That doesn't sound very convenient...
It isn't. I am absolutely hating this system. I can't get Out-of-Home connection working, Tried this. No luck. The GenieGO app from the Play Store did not work on my rooted phone (it has a root checker), however there is a hacked version from the XDA forums which does, and the app is not compatible with my mother's phone (LG Lucid).
When the installation tech was here, the wireless on the HR44 was working just fine. Now it isn't. I get 3 errors when running a test, one of which is related to being plugged into a phone line and having Caller ID. I have no idea what that's about, maybe just a gimmicky feature DirecTV supports. Might have to call a tech out to get the GenieGO Out-of-Home service working, wire the HR44 into the router and install another Genie Mini.
Personally, I have no use for this GenieGO, now that I know what it actually does. I was under the impression that it supported LiveTV, but it does not. What it DOES support, can be very misleading, as it was to me...not to mention inconvenient. I just want to view TV on my computer, not recorded content.
I might just get another Ginie Mini and call it a day. Ugh.
