    Probably mostly licensing deals.

    Love my directv iPad app. Just wish it would get channels right on the sports scoreboard. Keeps telling me there are no channels available for most games when they are. Seems it tries to figure out your subscriptions and fails. I'd rather the way the red button score guide works. Give me all the channels and if I don't get the one I pick, the receiver tells me that.

    I have a question about the guide in the iPad app: why do my HD locals have 2 instances? I live in Denver, don't have an AM21 nor an HR20, and all of my locals that are in HD show up twice in the guide. Trying to setup SNL to record tonight and I don't know which one to pick!

    Sounds like you're seeing both the SD and HD versions.

    Nope. I have "hide SD duplicates" set to on and both of the channel listings say HD/have the HD logos. For example, 9 NBC HD, or 7 ABCHD. They also all have the HD icon in the show listing when the show is in HD (both SNL's were listed as HD). I have a workaround, but it's frustrating that I had to find one

    Anyway, my workaround is this: I set both shows to record. I set the first instance of the channel/show to record 1 minute early. I set the 2nd instance to record 2 minutes early. Whichever one records, I set that channel as a favorite/"heart" in my iPad app guide.

    I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that I use to have an HR-20 with OTA capabilities. That receiver has been gone for awhile now, most certainly gone before I installed the iPad app. In the case of HR-20's or AM21's, doesn't the OTA channel show up as "9-1" as the channel number instead of just "9" in the iPad app guide??

    OTA channels don't show up on my iPad app for either HR20 that I have.

    By design, no OTA channels show up in the iPad app except in the "Currently Watching" module.

    So that deepens the mystery for me. Why would my HD Locals show up TWICE in the iPad app guide?? Only 1 of each channel pair records when set up to record via the app.

    Any other Denver area (or any other market) iPad app users seeing this?

    SF area, have not seen that even once, and I have good locals here. I wonder if there might be tags for the Denver area's locals that are set wrong. Or even if that could be it.....

    Yes, locals show up as -1, -2 etc. here in SF, on my Guide on the HR20-700 I have in use. They don't show up on my iPad.

    Way too many times have I been prevented from running the app as log-in fails. Today, it wouldn't go at all. Rebooted the iPad (3) and now it wants me to enter PW, which I did twice- no joy. On the try after closing and reopening, it did finally let me in, though it's still searching for receivers. It's showing the sports panel, but saying my Sharks game is "blacked out".... cause it can't find the receivers! [It ain't blacked out...,]

    Now, as it never found receivers, it's on its fourth attempt. It did not make me reenter either user name nor PW, but it ain't finding the go ahead, either. Still telling me my Giants BB and Sharks hockey are blacked out.

    DANG!

    Is this not a DIRECTV® server issue? Cause my LAN is pretty solid, and this happens a lot.

    Man I am excited. I have been on many a business trip and wished I could watch my content on my DVR while kicking back in my hotel room. Now I can. I just bought the new iPad 3 and I can't wait to try this out.

    I have been playing that and I noticed my Fox Sports affiliate channel is not showing up on the iPad either.

    Am I doing something wrong or is the name of this App and the First Look very misleading.

    I am at a hotel and outside of my network. I attempted to access a live streaming feed but am told that I am not connected to an HD DVR. (I see others have posted similar issues).

    The First Look indicates that "On Demand" content will stream but then also says "Live TV streaming outside is easy to use and the quality can be very good"

    Does this App stream Live TV outside the network or not?

    Live TV streaming does NOT work outside your home network. The other on demand stuff does stream outside though. It's currently limited to the Audience network and some premium content at the moment.

    Hopefully there will me more channels included in the future but for now, the content is kinda sparse for outside the home streaming.

    That is what I was afraid of. Very limited usefulness. First Look language really needs to be changed and this limitation highlighted.

    I'm in the Denver area and I see the same thing. Local HD channels show up twice on the iPad App.

    Was very disappointed to hear this. Hopefully they expand soon. I go on many business trips and was hoping to be able to watch all my content via iPad.
