I am getting surveys from Direct TV asking me about their streaming services. Basically, Direct TV streaming is horrible, and On Demand has intermittent problems. My Comcast Internet Service is 50+ Mbps, and I stream without issues at 1080p all Netflix, VUDU, etc without any problems, lags, or issues. When streaming Direct TV I continue top get video buffering problems. I...

New customer. Streaming to desktop clearly not working. Before I go out and spend huge money to overcome that fact that DirecTV can not offer a viable streaming alternative ... HAS ANYONE READING THIS POST HAD ANY SUCCESS WITH SLINGBOX CONNECTED TO GENIE? I can not exit DirecTV at this point without shelling out $480. If I can take that $480, spend it on SLINGBOX and solv...

Genie HD HR44-500 Either none of the program records - sometimes about 30 minutes records and stops. I.e. Treme series 1 recorded 1, 2, and 5th episodes but shows all recorded. When play was requested, the following message comes up. "All or part of this program did not record due to a problem at broadcast time. Please wait while we scan the recording for viewable content...

It keeps saying all or part of this program was not recorded due to a problem at broadcast time. Please wait while we scan the recording for viewable content. This is my on demand and I have never personally recorded this show. I have the channels that the shows I watch on demand are on. Is there a solution for this or is this something I'ma have to live with for now?

I've tried the refresh AND reset on my Genie and still have issues with random episodes missing from different shows in On Demand. For example, "Angel from He##". Episodes 1, 3, 4 and 5 present, but not 2? How does this get fixed? Although I understand that DirectTV needs to get the shows from networks, BUT I shouldn't have to contact networks when I pay $130 a month.

I have a whole home Genie DVR (HR44/500) and I cannot stream/download full shows through OnDemand. I can start streaming/downloading a show or movie, but after a certain percentage, the download will fail and I get an error message that states the show cannot be downloaded and DirecTV will try again. This goes on and on with no further progress being made. Sometimes it ha...

Been trying for a month to get this thing to work. I reset the kit and then it finds my network and gets connected. On-demand titles are listed, but when i record to watch in another room I get the "all of part of your program was blah blah". The connection seems to drop constantly. When trying to watch right away rather than recording, it buffers and eventually fails. I ...
