Home Location with Starlink

It is my understanding that Starlink does not set a static IP address.  Now, when trying to stream in multiple rooms I am getting an error on DirecTv stream that there are too many devices connected outside of the home location.  All of my devices are connected to the Starlink router. 

Is there something that I am missing for a setting on Directv stream so it recognizes my Starlink / home location?

No, you are exactly right in your first paragraph. Due to the fact that you don’t have a static IP, the location of your IP is not constant and changes. Therefore, DIRECTV STREAM sees it as multiple locations.

Thank you for the response. I thought I saw on a similar post (6+ months ago) they were working on a solution. Any idea if that is the case or if it is on their radar at all? Thanks.

I have Mediacom internet and don't have a static IP. Mediacom (other internet companies) don't change your IP that often--maybe once a month or so. Not sure how often starlink does it.
