    Interesting! Having title names and not strings of numbers/letters will be very useful in Explorer or Finder.

    I have a "new" iPad. Set up Nomad a little more than a month ago with a bunch of recordings that downloaded and played fine. Now they all expired and I have no more recordings on the iPad

    I get the message that says "There are no recordings on your iPad"

    If I go into iPad, Settings and then Usage I'm showing Nomad is still taking up 13.2 GB of space on my iPad. This is with zero shows downloaded.

    With no recordings on the iPad is there any way to free up that 13.2 GB of space that Nomad is taking up?

    Version 1.0.1
    Firmware 1.2p14-46159S

    The only way I know of is to delete the nomad client then reinstall.

    I was afraid of that. I'll wait until the next version and see if they fix this problem.

    I wonder if "dead" programs get deleted when the 'Pad is nearing capacity and more space is required?

    That is what I think would logically be the case.

    Why not just give us the Ability to Delete Recordings stored on Nomad or our Mobile Device so we can Manage it ourselves???

    Well, somewhat harsh if you catch my drift.

    Yea it seems to be a very popular way to write apps(Apple almost encourages it) including Spotify where they fill up all your storage and it gets cleared when it's needed but makes people think their using more storage then they are.

    It's genius on Apples part

    I wouldn't call it Genius by any means or use of the Word but more like Bad Coding Strategy.

    I think it is Confusing in that it makes people think they are running out of space when in fact they have a lot more space than they think if they took into consideration that the used space will be deleted when needed.

    Well, thank you dyed-in-the-wool PC guys! :D;):eek2:

    It may not be a coding issue, but a decision by Apple to allow for this, pretty neat for songs or videos that you may delete, but reload the following week.

    I suspect that Morega has an option of allowing this or not.

    Five months later (from these posts) and still no iPad app. I guess this is just another one of DirecTV's half baked projects. :nono2:

    We must be using Directvs dictionary the same one they got "Fast" from for the new HD GUI and "Coming Soon" for the apps on the nomad site. Speaking of coming soon hell they've put up 2 coming soon signs for Chase banks in my area and completed the one about to open and the other is almost getting brick/stone on the outside this is all in less than 3 months and Directv can't get an app for Nomad that natively works at the iPads resolution when the 4S and iPad 2 have the same exact processor and ram and drive space. :(

    Oh DBS Talkers please help me again! I have one of the first nomads available & I'm having trouble. I hadn't used it in months but I got new internet service (TWC) & a new Linksys EA4500 router I figured I would try again. At first it did download to my iPad but sometimes nomad can't find my DVR's on my iPad, iPhone or PC. When it does find them it just seems to keep preparing & never actually downloading. I held down the red button for 3 minutes to reformat & have restarted nomad several times as well as deleting & re-adding the app. Any ideas???

    Let's deal with just the iPad for a moment. In settings, deep down, change the DNS from its default to 8.8.8.8. (The 'Pad needs to check with DIRECTV® servers, and this will help it find it more reliabley.)
    That solved a lot of problems for me.

    I'm with Inky...

    How many times are things silent on a product or service for a bit...only to be surprised soon thereafter...

    It's happened many times before. The more sophisticated the offering, sometimes the longer it takes to launch. I've seen that happen numerous times in the tech industry.
