    $150 plus tax and shipping. I haven't heard of anyone getting a deal on one.

    I doubt we will see any discounts any time soon since there is no extra charge, and there are costs involved with developing the app, etc. Maybe if it turns out to not sell well, then maybe. But until I start seeing them turning up used on ebay, I would not expect to see them sold any cheaper.

    Has anyone got the Windows Nomad software to work in VMWare Fusion using the NAT network adaptor? It works great using the Bridge adapter, but can't find the Nomad when Fusion is using the NAT adaptor.

    It's not really a big deal, since I can just switch back to NAT when I leave the house, but if I can eliminate switching to Bridged to load up videos, that would be great.

    I had something similar. I had left the nomad client running on my iPad when I rebooted the nomad. Seems it didn't like that combination.

    Is the DVR set to allow client access?

    Use the iPhone app on your iPad. Works just fine on both iPad and iPad2.

    So, I just spent the past hour reading all 13 pages of this thread and there are some general questions I didn't see asked that I was wondering if anyone could answer.

    Before that, I had a thought for the people having trouble getting NHL games to their device. Have you tried recording the replay instead of the live event? I no longer subscribe to Center Ice because I have all the sports channels. While I can't watch the game live, I CAN record and watch the replay of the game that most of the Fox channels play about two hours after the game is over. Maybe that replay will work with Nomad also?


    On to my questions. I see a lot of people comment that they have the Nomad app on their iPad. I assume you're just using the iPhone app and installed it on the iPad? If that's the case, when the real iPad native app comes out, will you have to "delicense" your ipad and wait 30 days before installing the native app on it?


    Next question - from time to time I get the "cannot connect to Nomad" message on my iPHone app when trying to download. Does the app keep trying in the background to reconnect on its own or do I need to babysit the app and manually click the retry button? If I put my phone on my nightstand before I go to bed with the app downloading shows, am I going to wake up to find that it lost the connection an hour after I went to sleep and since I wasn't awake to click "reconnect" nothing got downloaded?

    Right now, if I set the filter to show only shows ready to download, I have a show (Glee) that shows up. But, at the same time, it still has a downloading bar indicating 12 minutes left. Why is it "ready for download" but still has 12 minutes left? AND, when I tap on Glee, there is a "Play" button, but if I view shows that are currently on my iPhone, Glee is not one of them. How can I "Play" it if it's not on my iPhone? And yes, I clicked play it it works... the entire show is there, and it started playing just fine... yet it says 10 minutes left now on the download progress bar and the show doesn't show up as being on my iPhone... odd. And there is not an option to "delete from iPhone". (I only have one episode of Glee on my DVR, so it's not a multiple episode issue).

    How much memory does a show take up on the iPhone?

    If I set multiple shows to be downloaded to Nomad, how do i selectively control which ones get put onto my devices? (I have two iphones and two ipads). I don't want it to automatically start downloading every show that has been "prepared". I want to choose which shows get put on which device.


    Apologies that most of my questions sound like gibberish. I'm not that good at putting thoughts into written form.

    Ok, just as an FYI, iTunes it would not let me download it since I already had the other night. So I first made a backup copy of 'nomad 1.0.1.ipa', and then deleted it from iTunes. It then let me download it again. When I was done the app still was named 'nomad 1.0.1.ipa' like I had downloaded the other night. However, I did a file compare against the two and they are different. (72K bytes different)

    My iPad also said everything is up to date. So I took a chance and deleted the app from the iPad and reinstalled it (from iTunes). I did lose the shows I had on the iPad and had to reactivate the iPad, but it went fine. And the ap again shows v1.0.1.

    Anyway, if anyone downloaded 1.0.1 the other night, this verion still says 1.0.1, but there are differences in the code. So you may need to delete it before iTunes or the iPad will update again.

    Once you start downloading to the iPhone, you can start playing it. You won't be able to delete it until it is finished downloading.

    As for the video file sizes, it will vary, but a 1 hour show uses about 500MB.

    I still am unable to get a hockey game downloaded to my nomad. I've tried manual recording on a NHL CI channel (3 and 2.5 hours), and 3 and 2.5 hours on Fox RSN channel. On each one of these, the transcoding on the nomad just keeps recycling (it starts off with 2.5-3 hours left, gets down to under 1 hour remaining and then starts all over again). I every case, I could play the hockey game on my DVR, so the recording itself doesn't appear to be the problem.

    Any ideas? Is there tech support at DirecTV that can answer questions/help with the nomad? Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tried recording the replay on the Fox RSN channel? Usually about two hours after the original game ends they broadcast a replay. The replay is not subject to subscription (i.e. NHL package not required) to view and therefore perhaps it will work?
