i guess this is helpful, nothing we couldn't already do with a web browser, even a wap version was available. but if they want to do an app, cool.

what we really need is directv to start adding slingbox functionality and have a remote app for Iphone and Blackberry.

There's plenty you couldn't already do with a browser and m.directv.com.

I thought so, too, until I tried it. At first, I thought this was useless, but it has quickly become my preferred method to search for shows. To me, the interface is faster and easier to use than the web browser.

That is not to say I don't want to see slingbox like function. I do.

Saw this the other day when I bought the wife the iPhone. Sweet! Much better than the mobile version that I use on my old HTC 8525.

That's what I'm hoping but who knows. I guess we shouldn't hold our breath. Now that would be really something as an added feature for D* subscribers.

Works like a dream. Logged in yesterday, set a recording and there it was last night when I got home.

Logged in again today, no issues.

On a possibly related note, word is that the new Slingbox app will only work with the newer SB Pro. Folks like me with older SBs are out of luck. Sux.

Make it for the Blackberry. Much bigger audience. 50+ Million Blackberry units versus 17 Million iPhones.

I am glad there is an iPhone app. Too bad it fails with that error message a lot of people are getting on my particular iphone. Oh well.
