Probably a dumb question, but---
I have Directv with a Genie HR44 receiver with DVR at home.  I know RV parks do not like streaming, etc.  Might there be any way that I can bring up a recorded program from my home receiver to a smart phone or tablet and then hook up & watch on my RV TV? 

Thanks Much!

Take the HR44 with you. It will fuss at turn on with no antenna but you can press menu, recordings, playlist to watch recordings. No streaming required.

Unfortunatly when you do that any season passes you have will not be recorded during the time you're away.

I used to record stuff off my DVR onto a DVD.  That got old real fast.  Some of the streaming services support portable content, but not DIRECTV.

Look on Amazon for HDMI recorder.  That's one way to do it, but like burning DVDs it will get old quickly.

Netflix allows some programs to be downloaded to a local device.  I think Amazon, HBO and Showtime do too.

There are other ways but some of them might be of questionable legality.  Do a search for the word Kodi on this site.
