    I actually don't pay a lot of attention to the first 10 seconds while the app settles in. I thought it was a video clip.

    They might want to add a 'replay intro' or some headline button.

    Just a general question about the app: has the "sports on today" module EVER worked correctly? I'm not talking about the channel listings for the games, I'm talking about the scores. For instance, right now it has the Rockies/Padres game listed, correct inning & outs, but dashes where the scores should be. I've been in the app for about an hour. Shouldn't it have figured out the scores by now?

    Only time I see that is when I have scores turned off. If yours are on and this still happens, quitting and restarting might fix it.

    I just installed an HR44-500 and am having an odd problem with the iPad app. The App sees the HR44 just fine - it knows what is currently tuned in and the remote control feature works. But when I select Playlist, I get the message "There are no DVRs configured". How do I fix this?

    Is the HR44 listed under the DAFI settings?

    Check to see that external units are authorized. If all set and no joy, shutting down both iPad and DVR and rebooting both may bring satisfaction.

    All of those settings are ok. I will try the rebooting ideas.

    D'oh!! I didn't know there were settings for that module. Fixed my problem and added some nice functionality for "my teams."

    Is it possible to filter out all pay per view content from the movie list?

    Ever see this? Live TV window is under everything and even if I scroll to try to get to it, I can't take focus of the window at all to move, resize it or bring it front.

    Well, you can make a custom list with whatever you wish in it (and omitting whatever you don't wish.) Worth it!

    App can't find receivers. Have to use Waltzremote to do remote control. Also only 4 or so channels available to stream because the app can't see receivers. Tried force quit and also log off / on in the app, also checked App Store for updates. Nada. Assuming its the software on my receivers.

    Nope, still didn't work. Nothing changed on the iPad. I posted an issue report in the appropriate thread based on the firmware version I have. It started since the version I have so that's the one thing that I can pinpoint this on.

    You might try going through network setup on your DVRs, No need to change anything. Then reboot.

    I did the network setup but did not reboot. Good idea. I did test the iPhone app as well. Voice search interacts with HR24-200 but live TV only allows the small handful of "on the go" channels. Obviously iphone and iPad have good network connection since waltz remote, dtv iremote and voice search work. Just no official iOS remote or the full gamut of live streaming channels.

    Reboot happens tonight :)

It's like DirecTV app doesn't think there are any receivers even though they are ping able.
