Directv Everywhere live streaming of wifi (in home) channels does not work on computer.

My HDDVR receiver HR 24-500 is connected to the internet and to my wifi network.  I am able to control the DVR and stream live tv (both in home and away from home channels) using both my iPad and iPhone apps.   I am unable to stream wifi at home channels  on my computer using any browser - Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome.  I keep receiving the message that the receiver and my device must be on the same network which they clearly are.  I have tried using both iMac and MacBookPro computers.

I posted this problem 5 months ago and was finally able to get it fixed.  All has been well until my DVR had a software update in the middle of the night on July 1.

Can someone please help me?

Thank you!

Your problem likely is the same as the one that I reported with the iOS Directv app.  Several people have reported the same problem that I have but others have also mentioned the sudden lack of access via the browser as well.  Check out my discussion at

FWIW, I just tried a few shows and different channels on my iPad and everything is working flawlessly

Thanks! I had read your thread about the IPad issues, but the strange thing is my IPad and iPhone apps both work fine. I can't imagine what is going on.

Thank you for your info.

Thanks for the info.  I earlier stated that both my iPad and iPhone worked fine; however, they no longer work for WIFI in home streaming.  My computers still do not stream live at home channels either.

All devices stream the out of home channels.
