Which begs the question: On what device(s) are you going to watch your GenieGo transcodes? It's pretty much designed for wireless devices, though an ethernetted laptop or desktop would work.

So if the GenieGo is connected to a wired router, you can't download the recordings to a wireless device?  Yeah, that would not make much sense.  At some point I'll replace the old wired router with either a wireless or a modem with router functionality.  I do have wireless routers but I can't really mount them in the basement where I need them to hook up to the rest of the house.

Not unless the wireless device also has an ethernet option which most portable devices these days outside of notebooks do not have.

The DirecTV website says GenieGo needs to be connected to the same wireless network as your HD DVR.  Will it work if it's connected to the same wired (no wireless functionality) router as the DECA, or does the GenieGo have to be connected to a wireless router?

I think the bolded sentence just means that the GenieGo must be connected to the same network (wired or wireless) as the HD DVRs.  No wireless is needed for the PC or MAC clients if those boxes are wired Ethernet.  IOS certainly requires wireless.

 

There have been cases of people connecting to the Guest network of their router which won't allow access to local devices.

 

I also had a friend that finally told me he hadn't been able to connect to his PC from his laptop for more than a month.  Turned out he was connected to his neighbors wireless because his signal was so crappy.

Yes, as the gentlemen have indicated! What devices do you have that are not wireless that you'd use GenieGo on?

Haha, well...none.  I'll probably just get a wireless modem/router combo when/if I get the GenieGo.  At $149 I can't justify it, maybe I can get a deal next year.

That's a sale price so it might not stay at that price.

I just checked on-line without logging in and the GenieGo info page lists it at $99 right now.
