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.

Hangs I really like the improvements in the app. But, it hangs when changing the time of searches in the guide. The slider goes away and hangs. Also it struggles with searches. Didn't find a listing for the same day and responded with bogus results....

POOR. Does not find all of my receivers Tablet version at least finds all of my receivers. This version only finds the DVR, displays info from random receivers, and does not allow me to select any other receiver to control. This behavior is the same on all of my 5 phones. Been busted for at least a year. Is this what the rate increases are providing! I am done with DTV. Overpriced, semi funtional bloat.

Great App I really do like this app especially the recording function. Being able to set the DVR when I'm not home has saved me! ..... TWO things I'd like to see that would give it 5 stars in my book. 1- when setting up a recording the app lacks the option of recording ALL episodes or just FIRST RUN please add that option. 2- It would be AWESOME to have the ability to watch the shows from your recorded list on your device.

Sucks I haven't been able to successfully use the app in a long time on my phone or my tablet. It always has issues and never can even look at the guide or anything. It also has serious trouble with streaming on a good solid network.
