Unfortunately, I can't check because I don't have an Android phone, but It looks like a new Scheduler app for DIRECTV is out. Let me know what you think.

My EVO is having a problem recognizing the updated app is installed. If I go to it via the market/downloads route, I can run it and it seems to work just fine. I just scheduled a recording. I need to figure out why it isn't showing up as an app otherwise. Don't know if it is related to something in the app update, or something else on my phone.

Edit: uninstalled it and re-downloaded it and now it is there properly (but did not retain my login info so need to re-do that).

Second edit: The program did in fact get scheduled to record, but I never got an email confirmation (which if I recall correctly I used to).

Had the same problem here (Droid Eris). Shutting the phone down and restarting it cured it.

Updated on my LG Ally. Seems to work fine. Much like the STBs, the Channels I Get setting is about 80% right.

Since you can't record any of the Sonic Tap channels, I don't quite see the point of having them in the scheduler.

OK, I finally found it. As luck would have it, when I searched for 'Directv Scheduler' I got the Sunday Ticket app. A much simpler search found it. It seems to work ok on my Droid 2.

Nice little app. Whenever I use it I feel always marvel at how far TV has come in the past 20 years.

Any idea how it will be different from the current version? If all it still does is allow you to remotely schedule, it won't be much of an enhancement. I'm hoping they'll add the ability to manipulate your DVR list and to-do list. That would bring it more in line with the Dish capabilities.

Try this, in your phone go to settings, applications, click on the app and then clear data. Then try the app again.

Looks like it works pretty good on my Samsung Captivate. Nice looking app.

Ya it seems a little faster loading but who knows. Looks like they just tweaked the graphics and maybe something "under the hood" that we don't know about. All in all it worked for me to set a recording for the downstairs DVR of "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" tonight.

Got the new app today, works great but it seems the area that you press on the touchscreen is much narrower before.

I am refering to the seach by channel, date and time, Movies and Order a movie or event now. There is plenty of room on the screen to make the area bigger. Maybe next time. I still love being able to schedule a recording with my phone.
