the iOS platform has always been "ahead" that of the Android.  This is the first time that iOS users need to catch up with Android, hopefully it won't be long

 

and you are right, the GenieGo and the Slingbox are targeted for different uses.


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

PPV is also absent from the list of "eligible" content.
 
The reasoning doesn't make them any less of a limitation.

There's also the non-content limitations:

  • Streaming only within home network
  • The content be recorded (or recording)
  • Can only stream from a HD DVR
  • Broadband connection required (even though it can't stream over the Internet)
  • Five client license rule
  • 30 day rule
  • One GenieGo per account
  • 640x480 resolution
  • Constant bitrate encoding
  • Six hour limit per viewing session
  • Limited trick play
  • Non-streaming content must be "prepared" (in real time)
To be sure, the GenieGo has its applications, but it probably shouldn't be compared with place-shifting devices as the overlap isn't particularly broad.

 

 

Wow... There are so many things wrong with that as well as simple reasons why they are that way...

No kidding!

 

Most of those approaches deal with copyright, stability, common sense, best practices, and intended design.

 

Glad to see (and experience) these smart considerations by DirecTV in deploying GenieGo.

The information was gathered from publicly available (the result of a web search for "geniego limitations") DIRECTV GenieGo training materials and active directv.com website content.

I question how something can be wrong and yet justified by simple reasons.

It is important that consumers know the difference between the implication and the implementation.

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. -- JFK

lt's awfully helpful when one has first hand experience with a unit. Then one is less likely to make ignorant statements, though not necessarily immune to such. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Easy - wrong is a subjective term.

 

Folks with firsthand experience are likely among the best to determine "right" from "wrong" based on actual use.
