I have two Streaming Devices. First one arrived and within minutes I set it up in North Carolina and it was fine.  Second one I took to another house I own in Virginia the next day and set it up and it was just fine, but one difference was the local stations were the Virginia stations, not my

DirectTV Stream Guide

Is there anyway to disable the preview on the guide. It is painfully slow to arrow down through this guide.  And before anyone mentions network speed, I DO NOT use WiFi.  My TV is connected by Cat6 Cable directly to my router which has 1gb download and 1gb upload.  It is NOT a connec

How do you extend the time on a recording.

I record my sports programs on DIRECTV STREAM but they run over the hour a lot of the time and I can’t figure out how to add a 30 minute or so extension on the recording when I set it up.

Right arrow changed from 15 to 30 seconds recently on DirecTV stream remote

I was watching both NFL games today (recorded), and as I always do, I used the right arrow to advance to the next play. In the past, on the stream device, it would advance 15 seconds, which is what I want. However, today, it changed to 30 seconds, which I don’t want. This is actually why I started u

TV box vs just streaming over internet

I use directTv stream on all my TVs, all purely streaming from internet (using DirectStream app). Works great, but sometimes really popular events (like last nights Bills vs Chiefs game) the signal will buffer with a message of unusual heavy network congestion. I ran speed tests on my wifi and it wa

Sound Fades Out but Improves When Channel is Switched

Sound occasionally drops out to a garbled sound. We can switch to a different channel and sound comes back correctly. We switch back to the original channel and sound is OK until the next time it drops. This happens about once per day. We had a similar problem with an older Samsung TV until the soun

Control more than 1 TV

Pardon my ignorance, we recently moved and switched from Directv to ATT TV, which I guess is now Directv Stream. With Directv we could control a different tv ( in another room) with the same functionality and identical remote as the primary tv. We now have to use Roku on the 2nd tv to view Directv

Has anyone ever used a third party remote for DirectTV Stream via Apple TV?

I just got DirectTV Stream. I have AppleTV.  It is sort of possible to use AppleTV, via the tiny physical remote, to watch TV (the remote app on the iPhone does nothing).  However, it is very clunky and tedious, and it is not possible just to go to the next channel (scrolling through the
