DIRECTV2PC wasn't killed because DTV choose to kill it. It was killed because the people who wrote it didn't update it for Windows 8/10. Things changed and the Intel stuff that checked for screen capture was completely changed. So unless the software is rewritten, it won't work. With the GG, they are moving to stream any channel, so you don't need DIRECTV2PC. If they can improve or give an option for the quality, it isn't as bad as VCR quality either, they will replace all the functionality and have more features.
