DirectTV Genie DVR question?

We're getting ready for our first trip out and don't yet have a dish arrangement setup. Can we take advantage of our Genie DVR without the dish plugged in? When the Genie boots up will it allow us to scroll to the menu to choose the movies we recorded ?

Yes, anything recorded will play without any dish or other satellite connection. We load our DirecTV DVR up with programming before we go, then connect it via HDMI to the AS TV, and scroll through and play our recorded programming as usual.

Good question. Following for answer. I have a Winegard dish but haven't thought to check my DVR without it being hooked up

You can download from your Genigo with the app to an iPad or iPhone. I connect to the TV through a iPhone/HDMI adaptor.

DirectTV Genie DVR question?

If you have an HR 44 or HR 54 dvr at home you are in good shape. Simply download the latest DirecTV app for iPad or iPhone. Built in to the app is the ability to download existing dvr recordings to your iPad/iPhone for viewing offline.

You can basically copy your dvr content to your mobile device.

From there, in your trailer, if you don't want to watch programming in your mobile device you can easily broadcast to your TV via hdmi adapter or Apple TV (I am sure there are other solutions for android users)

It's pretty slick and works flawlessly - eliminates the need to bring your physical dvr box with you on the road.

See my posts here for more details:

Enjoy your DirecTV service on the road!

from my previous post:

I may have a solution that will work for you. I have discussed on another thread, but I don't know how to find what threads I participated in so I can send it to you.

So i will tell you how.

DirecTV's new app as of Aug 2016 has a built in GenieGo. Good news! The problem is, no one wants to watch it solely on their phone or tablet. We want to watch it on something bigger.

I will give you two solutions: Android and iOS: Both of these solutions require that you have the content downloaded already. This can also work for anything anything else you want to mirror from your phone like NetFlix if you have WiFi.

1. Get this ScreenBeamMini2, it is very easy to setup.
2. That's it. Android is easy.

1. Get a router. This will act as a bridge between the devices. I got the MiniRouter. This router will NOT have internet, but allows your iOS devices to talk to one another Have your AppleTV and your iOS (Mac, iPhone, iPads, etc) connect to it just to get WiFi, NO internet.
2. Get an AppleTV
3. Get an HDMI cable from AppleTV to TV
4. This solution requires you have a little network knowledge in setting it up.

If you want to get and have multiple devices, AppleTV, DirecTV STB, Roku, etc, you can get an HDMI switcher. If you really want to get fancy and put two TV's in your AS, get an HDMI matrix and a wireless HDMI.
