    When viewing the PlayList on the iPad app, I noticed that some recordings are missing. I verified that the series/episodes are still on the original DVR and also checked that the shows appear on the PlayList of a remote DVR. I cannot find anything in common with the missing shows, such as recorded after a certain time.

    In this case, the missing shows are three whole folders of episodes of three shows and two single episodes of other shows (of which I only had those single episodes recorded).

    Anyone else having trouble today with TNT and CNN? I'm getting user authentication errors with both.

    Is it just me or are the dates on "channel guide" panes in European format for everyone? Either I never noticed or they somehow changed recently but my dates are backwards. For instance July 8th's shows are displayed as being "On Sun, 8/7" and the 9th's are "On Monday, 9/7". I can't find anywhere to change this.

    I don't have that issue, maybe close the app and relaunch?

    I have that issue. This is the first I've noticed it.

    Have you pulled up the apps bar or whatever it's called and held the icon down and then hard closed it?

    How about logging out and back in?

    I looked and didn't see any place where you change that in the app either.

    The only other thing I can think of is if it takes it's que on that from the iPads date format and that somehow that got changed in the iPad settings. Maybe change that setting to something else and back.

    I changed my localization settings to United Kingdom then back to United States. Closed the app in the multitasking bar. Re open it and it's still in DD/MM format.

    Of course I've done all that. I wasn't born yesterday and I know how to use an iPad. Another user has posted that he has the issue so clearly it's not something I'm doing wrong.

    Is your iPad jailbroken? I've got this happening on an iPad 1 and an iPad 3 and they are both jailbroken.

    Just replicated the issue. Mine was displaying in the proper US format, but I changed the default date settings to United Kingdom, and the DirecTV app changed the date format accordingly. When I changed back to the US setting it went back to correct.

    Go to Settings - General - International - Region Format and make sure that United States is selected. I had to completely close out the DirecTV app (double click the home button and then hold the app until it allowed me to close it by clicking the X) and then restart it to get the dates to switch back and forth.

    May be worth a shot!

    Non jail broken iPad for me, by the way.

    Yup, US is selected, has been selected and was re-selected after choosing UK and a few others. I've rebooted and everything...

    None of those suggest you did something wrong...

    No, it implies that you think I'm an idiot.

    Please put me on your ignore list.

    Yes but it never did it before.

    You know what I forgot though is when you go to the regional setup, I did change it to UK and then back, but the DirecTV app was still open in the multi-tasking bar.

    When I get home from work I'll try closing it from there, THEN change to UK, completely exit out of the settings app, then go back in and change it to US, then reboot, then open the app.

    I've tried that already, no go. I guess maybe I'll un-jailbreak one today so I can rule out the jailbreak.

    I did an iOS restore on my iPad 1 to remove the jailbreak and the dates are now displayed correctly. Must be xCon...
