Works much better with Genie System. After updating our DTV system today, this program finally seems to be working (for the most part). Not worth bothering with unless you've got the Genie system.

Finally got KitKat and it seems to work -- for now. Before the KitKat update, this app would always crash with "Unfortunately DirecTV has stopped". However after seven months of waiting my XperiaZ Tablet finally got the KitKat update and now this app seems to work a lot better. I'm able to watch select shows on my tablet and no more connection issues with my receiver. One thing I still don't like is it is very stupid that I can't watch recorded shows I have on my DVR on my Tablet even when I'm home.
