How can I stream DIRECTV from my phone to my tv?
Your tablet or phone must be connected to the same WiFi network as your receiver and wireless router. Then, follow these steps:
- Open the DIRECTV app on your mobile device
- Tap Browse for TV
- From the main menu, select Receiver in the Receiver Control section. This will bring up a list of receivers that are connected to your home network and are eligible for control.
- Tap the receiver you want to control. If one or more of your receivers are not listed, this means they are not currently recognized on the network.
If the tablet and HDDVR do not have the same first three sets of numbers, your iPad and HDDVR are NOT on the same network.
Possible causes for this include:
A.If you have two routers in the home – the tablet is connected to one, the HD DVR to the other.
B.Your tablet is connected to a Wi-Fi network not in your home.
C. For added security, some brands of routers treat Wi-Fi as separate from an Ethernet cable connection within the same router. If your HD DVR is connected to the router by Ethernet cable, and the tablet to the router via Wi-Fi, they may not see each other. Check your router manual as you may need to configure your setup.
