Anyone get this to install yet? I installed it on my Windows Mobile 6.1 device. It installed without a problem, but the application does not appear to be on the device. I can't find it and can't launch it.

IMO, too many Mobile/Phone Operating Systems to cater to:

Android OS (Google Phone)
iPhone OS
Blackberry OS
Palm OS
Windows Mobile
Symbian sp? (Nokia)

Did I forget any?

Neat....if they can only provide this service to the largest mobile device user base out there - BlackBerry - we have a grand slam home run. :D

But I think it is great they are expanding this support to more devices.

Kudos.

Here are some special instructions from DIRECTV:

As an alternative install method for devices that are having issues with the single .cab install (Such as the Samsung Blackjack II)

- Download and Install Microsoft .NET 3.5 Compact Framework. Be sure to install the proper version for your device, most device can use this installation cab: http://directv.vo.ll...le/mobilnet.cab

- Download and install the NFL Mobile Application Only: http://directv.vo.ll...le/wmsupapp.cab

I downloaded and installed it on my Blackjack II (windows mobile 6.1). I can't find any application either. Or does this download just let it work with a website that we will need to go to on Sundays?

I've heard of the same workaround that Greg mentioned. I have a Blackjack II myself.

Awesome. This feature will come in handy for me. I've installed the program on my Omnia and it seems to be working fine. Program is listed as "NFL Mobile" and once I gave my DirecTV login info it played a short clip. Took a couple of tries to install. The .cab seemed to be particular about where I downloaded and installed it. I couldn't get it to install on my storage card. Install only worked when I had it download and install directly to the device storage.
I know life's not fair, but how come it's never unfair in my favor?

See profile for equipment list.

Woohoo!!!

So why can't we test this on live streams today?? :)

Installed on a HTC Touch Pro 2 from T-mobile, alas I had to go with the alternative install. The installer program wasn't "signed or one of the components wasn't found". I installed from a storage card to a storage card, perhaps that was the problem?

After the alternative install, the app worked fine from a storage card.

Cheers,
Tom

Installed and working on a Sprint Mogul. Didn't have to do anything special, mine worked with just regular install though it did install like 3 different files or so.

With the supercast app what are the chances we get a dvr scheduler app for windows mobile now?
