    I didn't realize it had been killed. . . perhaps someone has a copy of 5717 that if you PMed them they could send it to you.

    I have the program files.

    What I no longer have is a valid Activation Key.

    Humph .....

    That's strange;

    Try clicking on the link provided by poster titled "dcd" in the directv.com forum on 6/14/2013 at 8:24 AM (PST)


    Whenever I click on that link directly it takes me to the directv2pc download site. However if I try to post the link here on the board it takes you to the dead link error.

    EDIT: The direct download link to the directv2pc app seems to work as well and does not appear to suffer file corruption nor do you have to go though downloading the advisor app. first.

    Well, that worked.

    First step, go to:

    Second step, once you are on the page above scroll down and select the link in the second post on that page: https://membership.cyberlink.com/prog/event/2008/directv2pc/enu/index.jsp
    Note: This Membership link above will not work from here, you will get an ACCESS ERROR.
    You will need to select this URL link from the web page of the First step once you are there.

    Third step, select Download Now button and it will bring you to the page that asks for your name
    and email address - enter your information here and select Submit button to get another Activation Key.
    (only two Activation Keys allowed per unique email address)

    The link below works but will download the program files only (I needed only the activation key)

    Two screen shots attached.

    Gone are the times when DirecTV accidentally left the activation key in the .ini I suppose.

    I hope they don't. I have a GenieGo, an it's great for on the go watching, but it isn't as good as DirecTV2PC in the home. For one thing, the video quality is far better on DirecTV2PC. For another, the Windows remote works with DirecTV2PC, but not with GenieGo. I use my HP Touchsmart as a bedroom TV. I hate having to use Splashtop Remote in my iPhone just to skip commercials when I use the GenieGo on there. GenieGo also limits you to 5 activations. I have my iPhone, iPad, Ultrabook, the Touchsmart, and my son's iPad. That leaves out any other family members who would like to use it on their iPhones. If I can reliably use DirecTV2PC, I can deactivate the GenieGo on the Touchsmart, leaving one more activation.

    Islesfan, it's sort of too late to wish they wouldn't kill it. Sure it's still out there but without a software update in so many years I don't think there's a lot to hope for.
