    I searched on Directv website but is states a HR21 or HR23. Do the TV Apps work on HR24 receivers?

    If they are supposed too, do I need to connect my receiver to my router or should it work with my Deca setup?

    thanks

    TV Apps work on my HR24-500, which is connected to the internet via DECA. It will also work connected directly to the internet via a switch/router.

    Do you have a DECA box plugged into your network?

    yeah, i have everything connected and my On Demand works and I'm getting the WHDVR to work too, but it gives me Error 11 "currently unavailable"

    My mediaShare doesn't work either.

    Apps have NEVER worked on either of my HR24-200's. I have DECA with an Internet Connection Kit.

    They don't work on my receivers that don't have ethernet connected to them but I have 1 H24 and 1 HR24 with internet connected and the apps do work. The other 2 H24s don't have internet connected and they don't work. Where do you think the information would be coming from if it wasn't coming from the internet?

    guess I will call tech support. Seems like they should work since I have the Deca hooked up to my router but I've read a few complaints on Directv website in the forums about the Apps not working properly.

    i called Tech support and they just wrote up a ticket and said they would send up to Engineering....for what that is worth.

    The tech actually had me plug directly from router to HR24 but that didn't work either. I read with the DECA, you are not supposed to plug directly from the router to receiver so after I got off phone I disconnected.

    My status for WHDVR and Internet show OK after test run so it seems to be hit or miss on the TV APPS. Since I never had them I guess I won't know what I'm missing.
