    Anybody having issues with "Sports feed not available" message? I first see "Authorizing" for a long time (1-2 minutes), then "Loading latest events", for the next 2-3 minutes, and then finally "Sports feed not available".

    Anybody else seeing this, or am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I have the exact same issue. Hopefully it's just a temporary issue. Everything else in the app seems to work fine.

    Tap the plus sign to the right of the remote to expand it. The list button should be at the bottom.

    Ok I've read all 15 pages on this app and im obviously behind u guys a little bit. Does it have to be only hd dvr's that u can control as a remote? I have 6 hd boxes in my house and 4 of them are hr dvrs and just my luck only the HR24 is supposedly the only one that u can use as the remote...my other 3 hd dvrs are HR23,and (2) HR22's. Whn I log in the app all 6 of my boxes show up I tried to enter a couple of ip address manually but thy just say validate and wont take. Is it because I don't have ethernet cables connected to any of them? If that's the case will this devise work on each of the receivers I wanna control as a remote?

    And how do people usually have here dvrs on there wireless network if there boxes are so spread out and nowhere near there router like downstairs and router is upstairs? I have a Wireless Linksys wrt54g router

    Thanks in advance

    The remote control part of the app will work an any receiver/DVR that is connected to your home network.

    Many users here use DECA to network their boxes and use a DECA adapter at their router to connect their receivers to the rest of the home network.

    USB adapters will not work in your receivers. Your need a standalone adapter such as the Linksys WET610N for wireless access. DECA is much better.

    Thanks for the quick response...yea DirecTV person on the phone told me about that one and WGA600N....would that work too? If u don't mine me asking...what is DECA? Could u maybe elaborate a little bit? Thanks...I was looking for an adapter that's somewhat thin because 3 of my dvrs are under dresser chest since all of my tvs are mounted on my walls with wires fished and I have the remotes in ir mode so u don't have to actually point at the box....im really anal about wires being all over the place let alone seen

    I'd like to play something from my dvr downstairs on my dvr upstairs. Looks like I can only use the "remote control" features to get that to work. Am i missing anything. No way to use the playlist feature, right?

    When using the playlist tab it only shows the playlist for the selected receiver not the unified playlist
