Useless after lollipop How long has lollipop been out? And they have not released a fully compatible version yet? I am disappointed in Directv. Usually much better then this. Don't bother paying 100for the box if you have already upgraded to lollipop. Or don't upgrade. This is crap.

Terrible app Prepares for over an hour and then can't download, app just closes out.

Constantly crashing The app works on my iOS devices, but not Android. When I click to download a program, it often just closes. If it does go through the "preparing" stage (which takes however long the recording is), the program closes instead of downloading. That becomes rather frustrating after watching a program "prepare" for an hour only to lose the recording. The reason you have to watch is another flaw in the app; if the device goes to sleep the app stops preparing.

Crashes in Lollipop Version 5.0.2 My wife watches 5-6 shows a day on her HTC One M8 - or at least she did until the phone got an OTA update from KitKat to Lollipop. I had been looking forward to the update so she could store shows on her SDcard as she was always running out of space but now she can't download any shows at all. AT&T was the last carrier to update to Lollipop so this should have been fixed a LONG time ago

Still not working Updated 4/11/15 Nothing has changed. Still aborts when you try to download when locally on your home network. Must be hard to fix since it's taking so long. Fist report Dec 22 2014. Since upgrade to lollipop streaming constantly stops. Also was able prior to upgrade to use VPN pptp to access home network. Now it takes 10 min to sign on and when I try to download app aborts.
