You have to be on your home network in order to stream the recordings or to transcode and download them to your device.  Once they are downloaded to the device you can watch them on the road, just like with the old Nomad/Genie Go app.  I don't remember the exact steps to get it to transcode and copy to your device off the top of my head, but the option should have been there on the same screen when you were looking at your recordings and streaming them.

 
I think you are misunderstanding the problem. The Geniego App does not run AT ALL on the Samsung Tab 3.
If I could get it to transcode I would be happy.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding. Are you saying that you can transcode with the regular DirecTV App. (Not the Geniego App)

You can transcode with any of the clients.  Once it's on GG you can then download to any other working client.   Not sure this will help you if it doesn't run at all on the Tab.

OK, I didn't misunderstand. The client (What I call the Geniego App) will not run on the Tab 3.

Is that the Tab 3  7,8 or 10" version?

All 3 have different CPU's.  Illustrates the android complexity doesn't it?

 

And for "not run", does that mean not launch?  not load?  not authenticate?  not display content?

Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought the Genie Go functionality has been included in the regular DirecTV app for Android now, like it has for the iPad?


Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 (I wanted "Big" screen)
Will not launch, Starts to open to a black screen and never goes any further. Sometimes will get "The App has stopped responding"

I will have to check when I get home. I don't see anything in the App description that mentions it.

Far as I know, The DTV app and GenieGo are still separate for Android. At least with the versions I am running. 

I have a Galaxy S5 and Note 10.1 (2014 edition), both with KitKat 4.4.2, and GenieGo works fine on both.

I initially had problems with the app running on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 until I was told by another member to turn off developer options in settings.  That was all I needed to get the app working.  You might give that a try.

I have a Tab 3 10.1 and I tried turning on and then off developer options.  GenieGo still hangs on launch.  All I get is the "black screen."

GenioGo app works fine on my Galaxy Tab 3 7".  

 

That being said, I just discovered one new issue last week after upgrading to V4.4.2 android.   The GenioGo App will no longer will download to a custom location (or least not one to the SD).  So its stuck on "waiting to prepare" and "waiting to download".   The default  (onboard) storage location seems to work ok.  Other devices it still worked fine on.

Exact same thing that I get.
I like the B-24 avatar you have.

Really strange that it works on the 7" but not on the 10.1", I wonder if there are differences in the processor and/or video chips?

About ready to go buy a "shudder" windows tablet.

Thanks,

 

There is a different processor in the 10.1.  The  Tab 3 10.1 has an Intell processor and the new Tab 4 is a Qualcom. I think it is a Snap dragon.  I can not find what type of processor the Tab 3 7.0 has.  Every thing I read says it is a mystery processor. 

 

GenieGo is not the first app I could not get to work on the Tab 3 10.1.  Flash will not work  and therefore Amazon Instant will not work. 

 

Both GenieGo and Flash (Amazon Instart) work fine on my Samsung Galaxy 3.  That phone uses a Qualcom processor.

 

It is definitley a head scratcher.
