    Audience Network shutting down

    My guide shows Audience Network signing off at midnight PT Friday night. The last show is Black Sabbath "The End". Someone has a sense of humor. :) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What's the monthly cost of a Genie wireless mini if you buy your own box?

    I finally got a CSR to tell me I am eligible for an equipment upgrade after 8/31. At least I know when I can do 4K now.

    I notice Audience Network is still on DTV running reruns of shows that have been aired hundreds of times. Why the hell do they bother with this channel? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What's the monthly cost of a Genie wireless mini if you buy your own box?

    I called twice with no luck getting them to waive the up front charge. I was able to get an additional discount for 12 months. The experience was terrible. The first CSR was in the Philippines. She couldn’t log into her computer. She was working from home because of the virus. I could barely...

    What's the monthly cost of a Genie wireless mini if you buy your own box?

    OK, I see, there is a $99 equipment charge. I will call them tomorrow and see if I can sweet talk them out of that. What I really want to do is get a C61K 4K mini and move the wireless mini to a third TV. I finally have run a coax to my 4K TV so I can install a 4K mini. I will see if they will...

    So there's no reason at all not to get one from DTV?

    I have a HR54 Genie with a WVB and one C61W wirelss mini that I pay DirecTV $7.00 per month to rent. I want to add a second client. If I buy my own client is there a monthly cost with DTV? I see you can buy C41w's on eBay for fairly low prices. With they work with the HR54? Thanks for any replies.

    Patrick had some medical issues last year too. He said he had bouts with depression while under treatment. That may have played a part in him declining all the extra travel involved in the Olympics that were scheduled for 2020. I agree his show would be a good fit between Florio's Pro Football...

    Audience Network shutting down

    Eisen's deal with Premier Radio ended on April 7th. I think the audio runs on Sirius XM and streaming on his web site. He hinted there is something in the works on the both the audio and video sides. The video deal turned out to be with NBC Sports to carry the final two hours of the show. I have...

    I never realized how terrible DTV streaming was until this weekend

    No, I am talking about streaming content on the DirecTV web page with the play on computer option. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I think it might be a server or bandwidth issue. I have noticed at times the PQ is OK but in the evenings especially it seems to deteriorate badly.

    I have used it a few times in the past to watch on my phone or tablet when I was outside at home or out of town in a motel and wanted to watch something the motel system didn't carry. It was OK for that. But I would agree it's not a good option.

    Yes, I should have been more specific. I am using a PC, Windows and watching on the Directv website in Firefox. I believe the site uses Adobe Flash Player, which Firefox hates. I looked around for a setting for resolutions but the only choice seems to be Closed Caption. Sent from my iPad...
