    If you double tap the image it should zoom to fill the height, but you will still have black bars on the short sides.

    I thought the iPhone 5 was true 16:9 and one of the advantages was full screen video actually fit the screen better. I know the app may have boarders top and bottom, but when a system call is made to invoke the video processing in ios6 on an iPhone 5, the render property specifies the 16:9 aspect ratio. Isn't directv complying with apple's spec?

    Issue: Search Results Don't Match Guide
    I performed a search for Vegas today in the app as I heard the premiere was tonight after the NCIS premieres. The search results that came up when I performed a Search for Vegas did not list the showings I expected as the first episode listed was for 2am and another at 5am.

    I then performed a search by listing all shows on a channel. In that case, the results only had two airings of the pilot: tonight at 10pm and Saturday at 8pm.

    Here are some screenshots from the app. The first two are from the Search results. The next two are from selecting the show from the Channel Listing.

    Issue: Search Results Sorted by Date is Incorrect
    When viewing upcoming episodes of a show, it does not show it in correct order if the airings are in September and October. Instead of showing Sept.'s airings first, it is displaying Oct.'s first. I assume this is because the "1" as part of the number for "10" for Oct. is less than the "9" for Sept.

    Why doesn't DTV allow streaming from the DVR to the iPhone or iPad app?

    I think it needs to be transcoded in real time, on the fly. Neither the DVR or iPhone have that kind of horsepower. DirecTV2PC can do it but the sys requirements for smooth playback are pretty steep. The full power of a PC is used in that case.

    So it can stream live TV but not recorded. Strange.

    Live tv is already in a native format that is easily decoded by ios. It streams from servers at DirecTV over the Internet.

    I just tried the Live TV for the first time yesterday.

    Worked OK, but I really wish I could stream from my DVR's tuner live or recording, not from the internet.

    New update (v. 2.3.0) brings live streaming outside the home for the iPhone. Also optimized for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5.

    About a month ago I gave iphone app a spin, and was able to watch all the channels available on my iPhone. Yesterday I tried it again the and the only channels I could play is Audience, AXSTV, Sony HD, and SHRTHD. All the other channels are grayed out. When I click on one of the other channels, i get "No HD DVR receiver found. I click retry, and still nothing. I then put in the IP address of the receiver, it says receiver can't be found. Both are on the same network. I have also restarted the reciever.
