This Sports Bar DirecTV™ Control System uses an iPad with our DVRpod System.

Our WolfPack™ Sports Bar DirecTV DVRpod System allows you to:

  1. Send any DirecTV TV channel to any TV

  2. Switch any DirecTV DVR to any TV

  3. ...all from one screen on an iPad

EXAMPLE: Using a WolfPack 8x16 HDMI Matrix Switch, 4-DirecTV Receivers, an iPad & our DVRpod System you can do the following with one finger:

  • DirecTV Box 1: Touch a DirecTV channel in on the iPad to see what sports is on ESPN and touch it to TV1, TV3, TV7, TV9 and TV14

  • DirecTV Box 2: Touch a DirecTV channel on the iPad to see what football games are on and touch it to TV2, TV5, TV8, TV11 and TV16

  • DirecTV Box 3: Touch a DirecTV; channel on the iPad to see what baseball game is on and touch it to TV4, TV6, TV8, TV10 and TV13

  • DirecTV Box 4: Touch a DirecTV on the iPad to see what soccer game is on and touch it to TV15

  • ....and more

To understand see the main picture here & on the left is the info on the DirecTV™ channels (in real time) that you select & on the right is a floor plan of your facility. Now with one finger you send any DirecTV™ box to any TV in any combination. You no longer have to go back to your rack and change the channels on the DirecTV™ boxes and then run to your restaurant floor to see whether it happened or not.

Q: How do you activate my system?
The individual system has to be on the Internet for licensing once. If the system is paid for, then we can license it before shipment. Similarly, for us to remotely manage the system, it has to be online but it can then be taken offline for daily use. When we ship any system out to you it will be fully licensed before we ship it out.

Q: I have 2 - Sports Bars, do I have to buy it twice.
Yes, each hardware/software package is individually licensed to each matrix system.

Q: What do you need for a Floor plan view?
Ideally in architects .DWG or other CAD format to make it efficient to draw a good looking and accurate floor plan on Photoshop. Placement of the TVs on a marked up paper copy (scan and email the results) with the identification of each TV (typically a number)

Send us high quality Logo of the store and of your company. Send us your company info you would like to be on the user interface About screen.

Let us know what color palette is wanted our standard is a black themed background but we can customize to any color treatment.

Once we have the above, we can design the system and provide you a quote.

Q: What else do you need?
We would need the computer network IP addresses for all devices (DirecTV, our myServer controller, etc). If we are providing the networking hardware, we can setup the network ourselves for you. We will be connected via a RS232 serial cable from our controller to the HDTVSupply matrix.

Q: What TVs do you recommend?
All TVs are compatible using our DirecTV DVRpod system. If you want additional features, like video walls, lighting system, etc. we may recommend other TVs. Call us.

Q: Do you have quantity discounts?
if you are an dealer, distributor, installer or an owner of multiple sports bars and clubs, here are the discounts we offer, per year:
  • Quantity 1 - 0%
  • Quantity 2 through 4 - 5%
  • Quantity 5 through 9 - 10%
  • Quantity 10 and Up - 15%
This only applies to the $750 DVRpod hardware controller and does not apply to any custom software that we must write.

Q: I see you have free iPad and Android app, why does this cost?
This is a completely different control method and the free apps cannot be used as this is a dedicated system. It not only switches any input to any TV in any combination (with any tablet) it also allows changing the DirecTV channels with the same tablet. The free apps can't do that.

Q: Which DirecTV models do you recommend?
We aren't aware of any DTV DVRs that we have not had good luck with. But all DTV models need to have external control turned on in the DTV menu, and they need to be on the network. Any DVR we need the IP address. Any client device we need the MAC address for the unit (printed on a label on the bottom).

Q: For $750 all we want to start with is control of the DirecTV channels and control of the matrix in and outs, that's what you provide, right?
Yes to the DirecTV receivers. Yes to controlling the matrix...all for only $750 with your iPad or Android tablet. There is no yearly license fee.

Q: What is the price we pay for the DVRpod controller?
The DVRpod Controller hardware is included in the $750 price and comes with a power supply, a USB drive, an SD Micro, a heat sink and a plastic case (so WiFi works).

Q: There is no reoccurring cost, correct?
Correct, no recurring cost. The price includes one year of software update availability. Our labor to install the update is at the $125/hr rate. Most of the time, no updates are needed if nothing changes in the system.

Q: Your cost to design a floor plan is $125/hour, correct?
Correct. Most jobs require 4 - 5 hours to create the graphics.

Q: Can I turn all the TVs off/on?
For turning the TVs on / off - that depends on the TV and if we have an IP or serial driver for it. If the TV requires Infrared, then we have the IR hardware that will also be required that is not part of the $750 base system price. You should NOT use IR if possible as it is less reliable when in place. IR is unavoidable to control cable TV boxes. LG and Sony IP controllable TVs are the most reliable for control. Samsung is a mess. Cheaper TVs typically only are controllable via IR.

Q: Can the DVRpod controller that is provided be used for anything else?
Yes, extremely flexible. And the myServer6 software is also extremely flexible. Easier if you have an idea of function for us to advise if that hardware / our software will today do the task, or if we can mod our software to do the task. We have done a LOT of very custom capabilities. We are a Solar system controller that will launch shortly, an RV automation controller, a jewelry kiosk merchandising system, and many other use cases.

Q: Are there rack mounts for it?
Yes, we have DIN rail rack mounts. Many of our dealers are interested in that as they expand the system into our audio products.

Q: Do cables come with the DVRpod controller?
A power supply, a USB-C power cable are included. Optional is a mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter cable. Optional is any Ethernet cables. Optional is a standard USB wireless keyboard (Logitech). But the optional pieces are not required, other than Ethernet cable to connect to the existing computer LAN (where the DTV receivers and the matrix are also connected).

Q: What is the DVRpod warranty?
The DVRpod controller is 12 months. Our software is updated and available during that 12 months. Labor to update is not included. Most of the time, there is no need to update.

Q: If new DVRpod firmware comes out, is it free?
The DVRpod controller firmware is free. The labor to install, test, configure a given firmware load is not. If the system works Day1, there is no need to update firmware Day 2 if nothing else has changed. For example, we are now using USB 3.0 as a boot drive instead of the SD Micro card. That requires a firmware update that we have spent weeks on. But the systems that are running SD Micro boot don't need to change. USB is faster and can be more reliable if the system is not on a UPS.

Q: We are only using a few functions to start with, is the firmware already there for all of the features that you offer or do they have to pay for upgraded firmware?
Most of the changes you would add are not firmware related but in our myServer6 application. Sometimes features are part of the one year software update. But again, the labor to update and add the new feature into an existing system is a custom hourly rate programming charge.

Q: Are upgrades sent by a new SD card?
No, typically the myServer6 updates are handled with our Software Updater that is built into myServer6. Requires the DVRpod controller to be on the Internet.

Q: If a user wants us to create the floor plan how does he pay for it, when it's done and he's happy or up front, or ?
Users will contact Allonis or us and provide a pdf or CAD file with the layout of all devices to control. Best would be for you to send that doc to us so we can advise approx. how many hours. Once we do the work for you, we expect payment. Each system has TeamViewer on it. We would need the active Teamviewer ID for the myServer6 controller. With that, we can upload the floor plan and make any contracted programming changes or updates for the order.

Q: Have you ever had any issues with an Apple or Android tablet firmware upgrade impacting your system?
No. We use the Apple Safari or the Android Google Chrome browser. No software needs to be installed on the tablet specific to myServer6. That's one of the real keys to the system. I see you give tablets to customers....that should be completely usable as is. If the device is significantly different size or LXW ratio, then a new user interface would be created (like for a Phone device) that optimizes the user experience for that device. We don't just "squash" or "stretch" the one user interface which is a not so good user experience like what many systems do.

Q: What minimum size tablet do you recommend a new user to purchase?
Any Tablet should work fine but the bigger the better. The current interface will not be good on a phone sized device (and vertical orientation).

Your question:

Our Sports Bar DirecTV™ Control System uses an iPad or Android tablet with our DVRpod System controller and is very easy to install. We have done lots of systems this turn key way.

1. The installer receives the TV pallets, opens and plugs in each TV the same day (for shipping verification nothing bad).

2. The installer follows our instructions on what wire goes to what device and where it plugs in.

3. The installer gets the myServer controller on the Internet.

4. We log in and double check all settings are valid.

5. We then do a telephone walk through the system with the installer and make any connection / software changes that are necessary.

6. The installer then shows the customer it is working.

7. We provide the hardware because we build the system here and configure all settings ahead of time.
