I only use the PC client since the Android version has been coming soon for over a year.
Ya. I see it now. the 2X button acts like REPLAY on a DirecTV remote. It goes back about 6 seconds.
I actually wish |<< acted like that, instead of going back 30 seconds. I think the DirecTV remote has those timings right.
I've been debating whether to purchase the Nomad for some time now. However, the ability to stream recorded content to my iPads (assuming they are connected to my home network) might be enough to finally do it.
I have a question, though... Is it possible for one DVR to stream content to more than one device simultaneously? Or, stream to an ipad at the same time someone is watching another program via MRV?
A Genie can stream to up to 3 simultaneous set top box locations, but the Nomad device can only manage one stream to one mobile client at a time.
If the show you are streaming is on a Genie, yes, because Genie supports up to 3 streams. It can even be the same show.
If it's on an HR2x, if it's already being watched via MRV in the home, you can't stream from it, because WHDVRs only support a single stream.
Ordered a Nomad last night (got $50 off just for asking) and the rep said the Android client is showing as new info in his online database. His opinion is that it will soon be rolled out in that case. Hope he is right.
I think it's possible that there will be some Android Client news soon.
Well, that would be Welcome News!!! Bring It On Directv!!!
Yes, but I got an email from DTV a couple of days ago announcing the new streaming feature from the Nomad. It said the feature will be coming to Mac and Android soon. Does that mean I might only have to wait another year for an Android app?
I'd wager the wait is not much longer.
I'll take that Wager because I heard it was coming SOON and that could be awhile!!!
Soon could be in one week or one month or one year!!!
I would bet on One Month!!! :hurah:
I suspect most folks would consider a month "not much longer"...if that's what it is...
Well, if that turns out to be the case then that will be Great!!! :hurah:
I have the Nomad app installed on my Mac Mini. I reported Last August that I wasn't getting video. The CSR told me Engineering was aware of the problem and an update would be coming. I then was given dates of 8/31, 10/2, 10/17, 10/30 and 11/17. When the 11/17 update didn't occur, I was told sometime in January. After inquiring to Ellen Fillipiak's office, I was told January 22. When that didn't happen, I was told by the CSR in Ms. Fillipiak's office that Directv had plans for the Nomad and that he would call me regularly to update me on the fix to the software for my Mac Mini. Shortly thereafter the update for streaming came out.
So, I might jump in on that wager.
I heard it is coming in a two-pack of apps that includes the Android version of Duke Nuke'm Forever.
It would seem that your sources may not be quite right then...
Hey Harsh has a sense of humor!!!
Who would have Thunk It!!! :lol:
I wonder if it will be available on the Kindle Fire at the same time.
Good question. The Fire accounted for almost 8% of all tablet web traffic last month.
They may/may not have enough onboard memory to run the app or else much content.
The new Kindle HD comes with 16GB onboard, the original Kindle only 8GB.
I would estimate that any Android app would also seize the advantage they have of storage expansion for content if the device has it (the Kindles don't offer microSD or SD card expansion, but many other Android tables and phones do.)
As long as the Android software for nomad is not in general release, it would seem to be vaporware.
