    I can confirm that, as of last night or this morning, my HR-44 is now appearing on my iPad and iPhone. Combine that the the receiver location names refreshing a few days ago, all my issues are now resolved!

    correct DAFI will not allow a watch on ipad option. Both the old version and now the 2.x version. I thought the DAFI upgrade broke it but both versions no longer allow playing. All receivers have external. Allowed. This was working last week whe they finally removed deactivated receivers but whatever they fixed for others seems to have broken me.

    I understand geniego been working on those issues since the install last monday

    I am confused here, so you are saying that last week you were able to use the DAFI to play your DVR's recordings on your iPad?

    YES. Once the resolution to the HR44 not showing upo and deactivated receivers showing I was successful in playing on DAFI recordings from ALL CURRENT receivers in the home ( HR21, HR24 and HR44 ). I think I posted in the thread when that resolution occurred. Genioego has not and still can not access the HR24 playlist

    DAFI and GenieGo are two different apps. DAFI has never allowed playing of recorded shows from your DVRs. GenieGo now allows streaming of recordings from your DVRs. It has been requested for a while for the GenieGo functionality to be incorporated into DAFI, but that has not happened.

    As for your HR24-500 issue with the GenieGo, that is a separate issue than what is being discussed in this thread, however, it is a known issue and DirecTV is aware of that issue.

    With all due respect, the acronym "DAFI" is not official, but the bigger point is the developer and Godfather of this great app doesn't care at all for the term.
    So, out of respect to him, perhaps we could not use that term?

    It's just so easy to type though! :)

    I think all of my issues are resolved. The only issue I really had outstanding was the fact that my HR44 was still showing that it was not connected to the Internet even though everything was working for me. I just changed out my router and shortly after my status is showing connected. I am not sure what else that gets me at this point as everything else was working, but I thought it was worth mentioning. I changed out my Cisco E4200 for a Cisco E4500.

    If you're still having issues w/ your IPhone not recognizing your DirecTV HR44 receiver, this worked for me.

    Goto:

    MENU
    SETTINGS & HELP
    SETTINGS
    WHOLE-HOME
    EXTERNAL DEVICE

    Make sure that EXTERNAL ACCESS, CURRENT PROGRAM & RECORDINGS are all set to ALLOW.

    Hope that works for you all!
