Useless app and difficult to use.
Jul 1, 2012
Nice app - wish it had ability to record a specific Start/End time for a Channel though.

Just installed. Very useful app. Don't say this app sucks because you can't create an account. Go to their website to create your account, then log into the app. Idiots! Wish it worked in landscape.

Used to work great... Used to love this app and never had a problem. Now can't record any programming remotely as I get an error every time... Goes through all the motions but fails to complete the process and brings up an error. Please fix... I am about ready to move to cable and TiVo with the amount of my bill every month as it is.

Needs work but.... To those who complain about the must be connected to your home network "error", it's not an error. It's policy. If you read about the apps features, you would know not all live channels can be streamed out of your home. That is up to the networks themselves, not DTV, btw.

Cant play well on the network I spend half the time I have this app open trying to get it to recognize my DirecTV receiver. It tells me I'm out of home when I am five feet from the wi-fi router.
