Can I prepare a show while it is recording to my DVR?


Please note: DIRECTV no longer sells GenieGO devices online or over the phone.

Unfortunately, you can’t prepare a show for download while it’s still recording to your HD DVR. You can, however, start streaming it to your device as soon as it begins recording. Please note: Streaming requires Internet connection.
