As useful as a football bat

First, I pay $200/mo for directTV to have maybe the 10 channels I watch, which are scattered in between the 500+ that seem to be nothing more than infomercials trying to sell me something like gopher fur beer koozies, and it’s usually in spanish… I try to stream to my laptop or phone at night so I don’t wake up the house if I’m wanting to watch some TV…. NOPE… gotta buy the GenieGO box to do that… $100, I buy the box, ONLY to find out, that it’s just to record shows to dump onto my devices so I can watch them at a later time… well slap my donkey and call me Mabel… that is SO not what I was wanting to do… But, the workaround is to start the show recording you want to watch, and THEN you can stream it to your laptop, iPhone, blender, etc… Ok, so, now I can stream recorded shows to my laptop… NO WAY TO REWIND OR FAST-FORWARD?!?? What moron at DirectTV thought this was in any way, shape, form or fashion, was a GOOD idea? The only good thing about this app, is that it’s such a piece of crap, it makes me want to get off my duff and go do something constructive rather than waste my time on TRYING to watch some television when I’m not directly in front of my TV...

Good but needs work

The good... I can download shows to my phone to watch on my downtime at work. My son can watch his downloaded shows on his iPad when we are on a long car trip. (There is also an option to make a show automatic for preparation and download)
The bad... It takes almost as long as the show is long to prepare for a download (an hour to prepare a show that is an hour long).
The ugly... I though I could start to record a show I was watching on tv and then watch it on my phone through the device when it was time for bed... Well I can but the video quality is terrible and you can't fast forward or rewind. (It's too bad because the shows that you can stream without the device are good quality).

Works fine - have Verizon Internet

Didn't work well out of the box - had problems with connection stability. I called DirectTV and was helped by their case management office. Tom sent over a technician to hard line our Genie Go to our Verizon router. Guy went under the house and even gave me extra line so I could move the TV around if I wanted to rearrange the furniture. Fixed the problem and didn't cost us a cent! Now I can watch recorded shows from iPhone and iPads. We don't even need the extra TVs around the house now! Thanks, DirectTV!
