    Very curious about what this is, and where it is going - read rumors, but there's inconsistencies about the details...

    I guess its a matter of "watch this space"?

    It is a "placeshifter" and functions like a Slingbox or Vulkano except made by DirecTV.

    Yes eferz,

    That's basically what it is...
    My direct tv beta test forum has had, and using these for awhile now.. being a beta field test, it's always hush hush...

    I couldn't tell anyone about it til now, cuz direct did a public unveiling so to say..
    The whole hush testing site I have been testing direct tv hardware and s/w for the last 4 or so years.. Here's a little more of it here:

    DirecTV Nomad is ready to launch, transcodes DVRed shows for mobile viewing - Engadget

    I am not certain I can say anymore on this issue than what I have posted here.
    The Nomad was just announced from direct tv of this product...
    That is about all we are allowed to tell, the direct tv link above has a write up of sorts,
    but the beta box we have been using is off limits to say more in depth details , til the admins. say it's ok..
