I have an HR44/500 Genie and Media Share is gone. Version 0x76e. Network connected and other DLNA players on the same networks find both Windows Media (shared / stream) and PlayOn streaming. The Windows 7 machine (PlayOn / Windows media) is also found on my Roku.. all hooked to the same network. Use to work on the Genie, but no more. Pandora is there, but YouTube no more....

Point taken dcd. After playing with it some more, it appears to be audio and video settings that hang, which as you say, are not things you do every day. I can live with that. I did some more research and discovered DTV's published remote API, known as SHEF. It is true, the clients communicate through the Genie's IP address. In the latest version of SHEF, they accommodate...

DCD, thanks for testing an iOS version. We can now conclude that the Directv app fails in the same way on C41's no matter the device with Android or Apple. I also know that these very same apps works on the HR44 Genie and any other LAN connected DTV receiver, just not the mini's. I have at least 3 more third party apps that do the exact same thing, and the developer of on...

Can you try it with your i-phone or i-pad? https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/directv-app-for-ipad/id421547368?mt=8

The app is an android app, and I have tried it on my phone and my android pad, and 2 other phones. Same thing. This all worked perfectly prior to Genie client. My daughter will be in town next week and I will try an app on her iPad. But given that all the apps, including Direct TV's app have failed in the exact same way, I am leaning toward a problem with the Genie, and h...

No, as I said, the Direct TV app fails. That is the first thing I tried, and just downloaded and tried again 2 minutes ago. Lets forget that I mentioned the other apps, other than the fact than no one seems to be able to get the mini's to work on IP. Have you tried it? Let me know, I will be happy to give you the steps to failure. Goto to remote function (left upper corne...

Thanks for responding Rolls. As I mentioned, even the Direct TV app fails in the exact same manner. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.directv.navigator&feature So I submit that, if Direct TV fixes their app (or the Genie), then all other app developers are good to go. However, as suggested, I did reach out to the developer of one of the several apps that f...

I upgraded to Genie and that is when the problems began. I have been using an app to control my whole home tv's for several years. It is a great feature when you have a wiring closet or home theater setup. While Direct TV's app has a remote-control function, I am using an Android app from Cognitial Mobile. Both fail in the same way. In fact, I tried all of the public apps...

Thanks for the reply. Two things: First, the HR44 must be on in order to put the C41 into program mode, so I can't unplug it. Second: The HR44 seems to always be listening to IR AND RF no matter the setting, it responds to other remotes during programing. No matter how much I cover, block, put face against a wall, it responds. It also seems that the remote always sends bo...

I installed three C41's stacked with an HR44 in a single wiring closet using pre-installed HDMI's to each bedroom. How to I set up the remotes so that each unit only responds to a corresponding remote in RF mode? Everything in the closet responds to all remotes. I also tried putting only one unit on IR, but it seems that the remote always sends RF even when IR is programm...
