    Searching for "Directv for Tablets" yields nothing when using my JB rooted Nook Tablet

    what would cause the play store to show limited compatibility for this app when we know it is compatible with more devices?

    Wow! Doesn't work on the Google Nexus 7. We waited all this time and it doesn't work on one of the most popular devices. Really?

    I have an original Galaxy 10.1 32gig (best-buy) with the Ice Cream Sandwich software on it. I can down load the app, I just can't get it to work. I uninstalled and reloaded to no avail also..

    Will we be able to get a compatible with XXXXX Android in the future? It works fine on my wife's Ipad.

    Thanks

    Runs fine on my Nook Tablet running Jellybean 4.2.2, had to sideload it after I got the apk file.

    You could try Amazon App Store. See if you can download from there. It works fine on my Kindle Fire.

    Just got the apk and installed it on my 4 inch galaxy player running ics and it works great. I like it better than the phone app.

    I just installed it on a Asus TF-700 tablet running Jellybean. It works without issue. I can not imagine using this on a phone screen, just too busy and too much info. Maybe would be ok on a 7" Tablet.

    Overall I am impressed. It controls my HR34 quite well and I love the way the guide is presented and how the "list" of recorded programs is shown. Streaming to the Tablet is not enabled. This app might eliminate my Harmony remote use for the Directv receivers. Good Job Directv and I imagine it is only going to get better.

    It would work great on 7 inch tablets. Even on 4 inch screens the tablet app is awesome.

    Wow is that asinine. 7" tablets are quickly becoming the preferred form factor. I can't believe this works on my ancient Viewsonic GTablet, but not on my Nexus 7.

    I assume we'll never have the ability to watch recorded shows via this app? That would be the real coup here... right now I see the app as more of a toy.

    I wonder if adding or changing ro.sf.lcd_density.xdpi and ro.sf.lcd_density.ydpi in build.prop to values of a 10 inch screen would cause the play store to make the app available for download.

    Doesn't run [correctly] on my HTC DNA. Too bad, as with a 5" 1080p screen it would probably have looked great.

    They are only preferred because the 7" tabs are cheap. I have a Kindle Fire 2 and a Asus 10" Tf-700 and I guarantee the 10" Tablet is much more preferred in my household. :)

    A toy, yes but a very useful toy.
