Yeah the live streaming menu is a great improvement! Now only if it didn't stop the audio when going into the info or browsing the guide. Also a remote control function would be nice as well as full DVR management. Sent from my iPad using DBSTalk mobile app

For a while now we've had HBO GO and MAX GO available for streaming everywhere, and of course, GenieGo, for an extra cost, gives that flexibility for streaming recorded programs.

True, but those are at an additional cost, just like the Sunday ticket app. I love being able to watch the games when out.

if they can offer true directv everywhere for an additional reasonable cost , I think people would sign up for it.

What's reasonable?  Are you talking a monthly fee? 

 

A GenieGo is $150, tops.  I got mine for $100 and I was still under contract.  I hear others have gotten them free.  The GenieGo is a one time cost - no additional monthly fee - and you own it.  I have had it for about 8 months and have found it has paid for itself already, probably a couple of times over.  When we travel we load DVR'd movies onto our iPad for our daughter.  Finding Nemo, Tangled.  If you try to buy these off of iTunes store they're $15 each to own or $3-$5 to rent for 24 hours, if that option is even available.  I've downloaded shows ($2 each) and movies (again anywhere from $3 to $15) to watch while I fly.  Now that I can stream OOH, it's another great added feature.  I can remotely set a show to record (say, a Blackhawks game on NBCSports) then log in via GenieGo from anywhere and start streaming the game. 

 

Even without the GenieGo, I think DirecTVs Out of Home "DirecTV Everywhere" offering is pretty good.  Go into the DirecTV app and look at networks, and then search for Networks you like and shows that you like.  I watch Storage Wars (A&E), Pawn Starts (History), a plethora of shows on HGTV, all out of home streamed via DirecTV. 

 

So again, what's reasonable to you?  If you are talking a monthly fee of $5, GenieGo pays for itself by saving you this fee in 20 months.  And that's just saving the monthly fee.  If you buy any shows or movies that you could record on a DVR, well, that's an even shorter payoff period.  Plus, DirecTV's current "Everywhere" offering is, essentially, free.  You have to pay for service, but it's a nice, free add on service.

Sure. An extra 5 bucks a month works for me. As long as I can watch the same channels currently offered. That's what I love about my Sunday ticket app. Just drove 8 hrs on Sunday. Mounted my iphone to windshield, fired up Sunday ticket and cruised along. Worked out great! Btw. Love your screen name:).

1.  Please tell me you were a passenger and not the driver.  Yikes.

 

2.  Sunday Ticket Max costs an extra $75 ($100?), that's a lot more than $5 per month of service.  Add in data caps from your service provider...

 

3.  Thanks.  I learned years after first using the screen name that I was spelling it wrong.  Oh well.

Issue: Guide Filter Sub-Type Resetting

I went and created My Favorites list and then set the Guide to filter by My Channels: My Favorites. As soon as you go to another menu option (or switch out the app and back in), the filter reverts to My Channels: Guide. This sub-setting to should hold just like the parent setting of whether to use All Channels or My Channels.

This issue still exists in v3.1.007.

I would LOVE to see the ability to manage our To Do Lists and Series Links from the App...  One last thing Directv TV is missing from the Tivo App (aside from making the Main app and Genie Go into one app)

Got the new update.  Works great, nice to see some premium channels live streaming.

 

Only issue I have with remote control is that when I try to control one of my dual feed receivers from my bedroom, it has that big ugly "press and hold exit" message for SD output.  But when I press and hold exit on the app, it doesn't really do anything.  So I'm still limited to my unreliable IR > RF repeater.

 

Other than that, it controls other functions.

Well done!

That being said there is a division of functionality with respect to page up/dn and the delete button. In order to page though playlist or guide one must envoke it, toggle to first remote screen, page to wherever, toggle back to the second screen to arrow to a specific row to select. Would be nice to have a paging toggle on that second level screen.

Just found it a bit clumsy with back and forth acivity but certainly a great accomplishment! Thanks!
