The genie dvr is new and had no recordings yet so I recorded a show and it streams to my tablet and plays perfectly with no buffering with the 2 hr24-500's still hooked up. Yea! So I guess it is a problem with the 24's. Like I said I can see all the recordings on both 24's and it will stream with buffering from one but a recording from the other 24 won't play at all I get the message that the dvr is busy try again later but it is not busy. I also have the geniego app on my computer which is hard wired and it buffers from one 24 and won't play from the other even though it is hard wired. The 44 plays fine. Hopefully directv will find a way to get the 24's to work streaming. Thanks for your help.
