It was my understanding it's supposed to be additive, though I haven't been able to get it to work. Could be an issue with my USB stick, even though it works fine with my PC. It's a Kingston DataTraveler G3.
Correct. So keep in mind, if you delete the original file from the receiver, the Nomad copy will be deleted as well, no matter how much storage you added.
It's almost like there were plans for a monthly fee, but those plans changed relatively close to launch. Weird...
And you can't transcode OTA either.
If you're in an area that does not get SAT HD locals, you'll have to record SD versions of those shows for transcoding.
Sweet or anyone can answer this,
I just had on 9/1, Directv came in and I got new equipment. The above, basically is what I have but it is black not silver.
What will the advantage be if I get this new silver networking thing.
...or they used a standard e-mail template with that information in there...and forgot to change it... :shrug:
Let's get back to discussing nomad, please. This thread has been very productive for those seeking answers, so far, and I'd like to keep going in that direction.
From what I can gather you do not need a windows PC for this to work correct? You can download the IOS app and it will function with that?
Well, the Nomad service line on my account says "Free", so that's good enough for me.
The iOS app works fine by itself. There is no need to have a PC client active (I don't).
That is correct.
Awesome since we only have MACs
Adding a USB drive does add to the total capacity of the nomad box, at least it has when I used a USB thumbdrive and USB harddrive.
Does anyone know what the resolution is for downloaded shows to PC? Is it HD and if not does anyone know if Directv will implement resolution options for downloading?
Well it is Networked to a the receiver it downloads from, seems quite obvious actually.
Considering the similarities between iOS and OS X, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Mac version show up in the future.
So the receiver is supposed to receive the authentication, and then pass it on to Nomad? Seems like a pointless extra step, considering Nomad has to be on your network anyway.
The above is not what you have. I don't think you understand what this device really is, so I'd advise you to read the First Look document.
The primary authentication seems to come from the internet, while authentication takes place on a show-by-show basis between nomad and the DVR.
Another very trustworthy source has just told me that there is no monthly fee and that the e-mails are being fixed.
That's Mister Sweet to you :lol:
I think you have a broadband DECA which looks very similar. It communicates between your DVRs and the internet.
Nomad is a device that allows you to watch your shows when you leave the home.
