    I guess it depends on what you consider "alot". The app was downloaded over 100,000 times in its first four days, and made it into the top ten within a week. I consider that "alot". ;)

    I use it... it's alot easier to use this app to schedule a show than it is to run to the computer to do it. it's almost easier than using the DVR to find a show to record... looking forward to the hide SD duplicates feature...

    Yes, there are a lot of people that use this app. I suspect that there are folks using it that don't even have DIRECTV.

    It is probably the only app I use every day. Much easier to setup a recording than either going online or going to the media room where our DVR is located. I have also found myself using it as much as a replacement for the guide as for setting up recording.

    Really happy to see the hide duplicates option and also now if there is a show that is 61 minutes long, you don't miss the next show in the guide if it is a 30 minute show.

    I use it regularly and quite often use it at home instead of using the HR2x to search for shows, scan the guide or schedule recordings.

    This looks like a fantastic way to do remote scheduling for other DVR's in the house. Yet one more reason I may have to break down and get one of these puppies.

    I love this app, use it all the time. Works great. Hiding the SD duplicates was something I really wanted and it is as good as I imagined.

    Now what we need is the ability to control our prioritizer for each of our DVRs through the app.

    I second this. I would also like the ability to add time to a recording, or begin it early, just like I can with the DVR.

    Great app!

    Everyone I know who has DirecTV happens to have an iPhone, and we all immediately downloaded this app. It is a fantastic addition to our DirecTV systems. Not only can we easily add recordings remotely, but it's a lot faster to do searches right at the TV. Thanks so much DirecTV!

    do you know if there's a way to use it as a remote? I have a tv in a different room and it would be nice to be able to switch channels via my home network.

    Great app. I was concerned with hiding SD that at times I have seen the HD channels (particularly BTN) not have guide data on the phone for the HD but have it for the SD but that looks like it has been fixed.
