    The DIRECTV Application for iPhone 1.9.4 is now available in the App Store. If you have the iPhone App installed, you should be prompted for an upgrade.

    Updates:
    - New graphical look

    New Features:
    - Manual Record - Record a channel for a set amount of time.
    - Quick record, swipe across a title to quickly record
    - Other airings/episodes - see future airings of a specific episode or upcoming episodes for a program
    - Remember searches - easily access your recent searches
    - Order PPV - Order a movie or event in front of your TV without the need for a phone line. Ordering applies to all receivers in your home

    Kudos to the DirecTV iPhone app devs. This new interface is slick. And the new features (manual record, swipe to record, and other showings) are very welcome additions to an already slick app! All I can say is, AWESOME!!!

    I would love to see the iPhone app designers hook up with the DVR menu design team. We need this slick look in the DVR menus.

    Looks like there is more to the new features than graphical and manual record:

    Quick record, swipe across a title to quickly record
    other airings/episodes
    remember searches
    order PPV

    That is Apple's new layout in iTunes, you have to hit the "more" button on the far right, to open up the full listing of new features.

    Actually the more I look at it there are even more channels missing. The local channels are missing, the 101 network is not on the listing and all the Starz channels are missing and ESPN2 is missing.

    Try logging in as "guest" but using your zip code and report back your findings. Thanks.

    I logged out and checked under guest with my zip code and I am seeing the same issues. Several random channels are completely missing from the listings.

    I've logged in and am missing locals as well. Although locals are there; they just are NOT the correct ones (displaying ones from another area).

    I have also tryied loggin in "guest" mode and manually entering my zip code when prompted with the same results.
