    I gather you haven't seen her husband. Be careful what you wish for.

    No worries! Compliments always welcome!

    Rich, how do you know what my hubby looks like?

    By the way, hopefully he and I are going to CES in January!

    I can't get Voice on TV to work. I put in the receiver's IP adress and I get the message "We see a Voice Enabled Receiver under your account. This phone and your Voice receiver must be on the same Wi-Fi network to use this feature.

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?


    Not sure

    I just tried it and it worked on the first try

    What receiver do you have?

    RIch, you have a good memory! I don't remember posting a pic with hubby. I recently posted one with Carl as we met up for dinner here in Spokane.

    I think he was in uniform. BTW, I read your comments about nomorerack.com and have been hooked. Not sure whether to thank you or not :sure: .

    I know what you mean! I got addicted to that site. At the risk of inciting more crazed shopping, here is another: http://1saleaday.com/

    Enjoy!

    Are you using it at home (dumb question I know, but ya know).

    You are on WiFi and not 3G/4G/Neighbors network right??? (I know, but I gotta ask) :)

    Are you on the same subnet as your D* receivers. You aren't on a guest network or anything are you?

    From the homescreen of the Directv app, 3 bar menu upper left, does it show Out of Home and Receiver: No Receiver like mine? if you touch No Receiver does it show Receiver Error Unable to Retreive your Receiver? When in your Voice setup, if you touch the How do I get Connected, put in your receiver ip number does it show Unable to Connect to Receiver (like mine does too)?

    Do you have a wireless router that does not support upnp?

    It shows all my receivers.

    When in your Voice setup, if you touch the How do I get Connected, put in your receiver ip number does it show Unable to Connect to Receiver (like mine does too)? Yes

    Well, yours works better than mine!

    I have tried 3-4 different android devices, they all show the No Receivers.

    I am thinking about experimenting with a different router, but have not tried that yet.

    What is odd, is that on my Nexus 7, the Tablet app works perfectly, I can Remote Control, it shows green and that I can power it off, it shows the channel the device is tuned too. It is working 100%. It does seem to be quite happy talking directly to the receiver. Then I close that app and run the phone app, and it is saying No Receivers. I don't get that.

    OK mine is working now! I had called Directv support and went through 2 people and we could not get anywhere. They said to call back and ask for an escalation. It was interesting that they did not even allow the manager I talked to to have a device at work! Like how can you do a good job supporting customers when you can't even step by step with them. Anyway I finally got my return box for my D12 so I sent that and ordered my first C41, free from directv (shipping 19.99) because I had a Sony SAT-B65 that is obsolete. As soon as I activated my first RVU client, the Android phone app started working and recognized I was In Home, it listed the genie and cloent, voice search on tv woke up and works. Amazing. And frustratimg.
