    it was supposed to be released at the beginning of June. But this is the reason why DirecTV does not make this types of announcements

    Just some info for the masses, I picked up a GenieGo from a retentions rep for shipping only, $19.99. She did use some credits I had to get that price so it may depend on how much heart you have.

    Below is from the current DirecTV website and is exactly what I hoped from the GenieGo. I take it this is a very new feature. The account reps I spoke to on the phone argued that this (streaming recorded content remotely w/o downloading first) was not possible. Has anyone used this feature? Work ok?





    Stream shows instantly anywhere you
    have a Wi-Fi connection.


    Stream a recorded show to your laptop or mobile device anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection—inside or outside your home. No need to download it first before you start watching. In fact, you can start streaming as soon as the show begins recording to your HD DVR!

    Yes, it works nicely! Too bad for me that my upload is severely limited, and won't change for some time- if ever- if optical ever gets strung here.

    As to the slimy part, here are some suggestions:

    Use less water in dough prep.
    Drain tomatoes prior to topping
    Cook longer and maybe a tad slower.(lower temp)
    Switch to a less oily cheese.
    Refrigerate in between meals.....

    :grin:

    Enjoy!

    So, when does D* plan to update the software so you can FF, etc? Or did I miss that part? Heck, we could FF on the old Directv2PC software.

    That's on streaming only. The GenieGo can download whole programs from the home LAN and they can be played anywhere, WiFi or no.

    I would think another thing to consider is the slingbox will take up your receiver so someone will not be able to watch something else on the TV attached to the same receiver. Not sure how that works with GG. I would think if streaming from it that it wouldn't tie up the receiver, but perhaps it would, like the case where you can't have two DVRs watch something from a 3rd DVR at the same time.

    yes, the GenieGo ties up a "streaming" tuner. So for example, if you had 3 minis you could only use 2 while the GenieGo streams to a mobile device.

    Any other ways to transfer the Genie recordings to a Mac computer that does not involve this Geniego?
