You can FF commercials with the DirecTV Stream Cloud DVR.
So, how to you get to the 15 sec forward and 8 back? Is it the same IR signal that the Satellite DVR's used? I have that programmed into a URC remote.There is 15 sec forward and i think 8 back
So, how do you get CW on demand using the Directv stream box? Or for that matter, any on demand channels?You get CW on demand only

The streaming version is much easier to use, but there is a learning curve. If you're used to the sat version you shouldn't have any problems with the streaming version of D*. The remotes are different but they are more responsive than the satellite version's remotes. Using anything but a dedicated remote is a nightmare. Yeah, you can use the Apple remote but it doesn't have the features the Osprey remotes have. I didn't want to buy the boxes but it quickly became apparent that I needed them. You're concerned about complexity? The sat service is the more complicated service, streaming is much easier. The DVR function is so easy to use it's almost ridiculous.I am a very long time Direct TV customer. I have the genie system with 3 boxes for three rooms. I have 4K Apple TV where I stream HBO Max, Netflix, Prime, and Hulu. If I drop Direct Satellite and switch to their streaming service will I need to buy a Direct streaming box for DVR capability in each room? With the streaming box Apple TV will not be used with Direct, is that right? I mostly watch the news shows and sports and local TV with Direct and Apple TV for Netflix, etc for the rest for streaming. Is streaming any more complicated than watching satellite, I don't want to make it complicated for my wife. Thanks
Yes they can connect wirelessly or via ethernet cable if you have them. No video bridge needed.We have 3 tv's. Will the 3 DTV stream boxes connect via Wi-Fi, direct to the ATT gateway?
Question 2: Or need a Video Bridge, like I have for DTV satellite, for the other 2 tv's?
Essentially the same as DirecTV Satellite. DirecTV just delivers whatever native resolution the networks provide. For HD channels, that's either 720p or 1080i. And DD5.1 audio is provided if the network delivers it.What is the PQ and Audio in streaming vs satellite 1080i? Dolby Digital? Is there an impovement?
The remote is annoying. While the performance is far better than I expected, the damn thing is too small and it has black buttons on a black remote. In a dark room, it's hard to see which buttons are which. If it were backlit as the old D* remotes are, with a button to turn the backlight on it would be much easier to use.Hey Rich
I made the switch about 3 weeks ago. Moved to Florida and with the weather, didn't want to deal with the lost sat signal. My only dislike so far is the length of time recordings are saved. I liked to record a season of a new show and see if it "made" it before getting invested. Now I can't do that.
What are your complaints?
LOL the cops will be at his doorYeah definitely...if it exists which I have my doubt. 5,100 channels. Every PPV event, every sports package in season like Sunday Ticket, Extra Innings, world channels for every country on earth, every series ever made, and every movie you can think of, including current theatre showings. $25 - $35 per month. Yeah sure.
