GenieGo on iPad won't activate


GenieGo on iPad won't activate

I'm trying to activate my iPad so I can download my DVR items onto it and watch it anywhere.  But when searching or manually entering the S/N it still can't find the receiver.  I've erased the app and reinstalled it and it still can't find it.

Ant suggestions?

What model DVR do you have?

How is the DVR connected to your home network?  Be as detailed as possible.

for the Serial Number, you should be entering the Serial Number of your GenieGO. It is on the bottom of the box.

How is your GenieGO connected to your network? what is the status of the LEDs?

Okay, here's what I have:

Genie HD DVR Model

I'm hooked up to my network through a wireless router

My iPad is also connected to my internet wirelessly

Both IP address for both pieces of equipment start with the same three numbers.

I have a GenieGO HD Receiver HR44/500.

It's connected to a wireless router and everything is connected and blinking.

You're misunderstanding.  The GenieGO is a separate device, it is not your HR44, which is a Genie.  The link shows what a GenieGO is.  Do you have one of these?
