I have 1 PC working just fine with my DTV DVR box....now I am trying to get the software to work on my laptop. Here is my log, with the issues I am facing. What are my options, if any, to get it to work on this laptop. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions. I am not a complete green horn, i just dont know what my options are.

I've highlighted what looks to be three major issues.

3 RED issues are actually
OS version, I suppose I can update it.
GPU - not sure if there is a solution for this.
Graphics Driver. Which I have already updated to the most recent version.

Its pretty much a no-go if your laptop doesnt have all the hardware it needs to support Directv2PC playback....The video chipset in your laptop is not up to snuff unfortunately.
Yep, this is a dead end.
If this wasn't a laptop, a video card upgrade would get the hardware up to the job.

You can get a used PC laptop or desktop for about $100 which will run DirecTV2PC. I found an HP laptop in the Atlanta, GA area for my son which runs DirecTV2PC. I installed Win 7 Home Premium OEM which cost me another $100. Also, check out Craig's List and eBay. Best Wishes!

I would go ahead and install vista/Win7 and update to latest drivers. and try it anyway... it may or may not work. or it may produce unpredictable results... I had one machine work fine with the intel video, and another work really choppy. a third machine would not ever show video. so it's worth a shot, but I would not expect it to work... but you might luck out...

The lack of screen capture protection looks to be it.
Intel Graphics chips have had mixed results.
There may be a driver update that will help.

I've actually had to back up a couple of versions on various video drivers from the manufacturer versus the updates from Microsoft along the way.

Keep trying - you might find one that works. The bad news is you might not.

Most likely, you have an integrated Intel graphics chipset which is HDCP compliant. Apparently, DirecTV2PC does not recognize it, refer to the following: http://forums.directv.com/pe/action/forums/displaypost?postID=10930646. It appears that Intel integrated graphics chipsets are not on the D* compatible list. I can offer two options:

- If your nearly new PC has a PCIe video slot, then add a D* recognized graphics card.

- D* is testing DirecTV Everywhere, refer to: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=203670,
which (my guess) is the replacement for DirecTV2PC. If you can wait, this will probably solve your dilemma.

Best wishes!

The screen capture protection is usually what kills this....basically thats the HDCP....if the video doesnt support HDCP, Directv2PC will not work...
On one of my rigs my video card supports HDCP but the monitors don't and it still works. Playback adviser is red with "Digital (without HDCP) and it still works fine for me.
