    It cannot find my receiver for live content and playback of non-live content was very poor on wifi.

    Still wishing for:
    1: a mini-remote control.
    2: Landscape guide with expanded time span
    3: interactivity within the guide to "watch now on TV" (combo of 1 & 2)

    DirecTV Everywhere is a nice addition to the DirecTV app in version 2.2.0.

    I used to be able to schedule DVR recordings. Now it said its not supported on Jailbroken Devices and I can't even schedule a G-D- DVR show. I need iBlacklist, 5 x 4 icon springboard and infinifolders to stay organized. Guess i'll have to see if xCon works. If not, its back to restore the old version from iTunes.

    I've yet to find a single reason to jailbreak any of my iOS devices, but that's a topic for elsewhere.

    You aren't looking hard enough then.:p I could give you a huge list for either my iPhone or iPad. Maybe when I have more time and in another thread.

    It's a now option to have.
    I used to hope that my App Store update number meant a DirecTv update. I gave up all hope because all recent threads wondering about an iPhone app were never addressed by an expert wih a cryptic "soon" ;)

    There one thing that the Iphone app can do but not the Ipad app. You can airplay the live tv channels to apple tv.

    I have not been able to use this app for some time as it always says "we are experiencing technical..." followed by error 1001- Network Communication Data Contents PGWSReceivers

    This update has not fixed the issue (even reinstalling) and I have not been able to find a solution to get it working again.:(

    If you have set up iCloud, on the iPhone go to Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup>Manage Storage>Under Backups Click your iPhone it should display the name and size of the backup> Show all Apps> Scroll to DirecTV then Turn Off & Delete
    Then delete and re-install the App only after doing the above. If its working properly after re-install then you can repeat the steps above except Turn On to continue backing up the data.

    I second this with your 3rd point I'm hoping for like a mini Playlist like on the iPad.

    Hmm looks like we don't have to. If you visit directv's website in safari, seems there's still options to set recordings. They even give you a shortcut icon to the mobile website if you tap the popup on first visit.
