I did what I said earlier and no change.
Directv closed in multitask bar.
Local set to UK
Back to springboard
Local set back to USA
Turn off iPad
Turn on iPad
Open directv app. Still in euro DD/MM format.

Not a big deal. Never noticed it before till someone here said something. Just an interesting observation.

Some of the DVRs aren't showing all the recorded programs in the Playlists on the iPad?

Am I missing something? A few weeks ago my iPad used to show Play on TV AND Play on iPad for the things I had recorded on the DVR.

With the latest iPad update and the DVR update I only see Play on TV for recorded programs. Everything else seems to work fine.

Can't I watch recorded programs any longer?

Nope, you never saw that exactly. What you did see is they will let you tune to a live station on the tv or start a live stream to your iPad while you are pursuing the guide in any way, on some channels, but not recordings. Of course you can also start playback of a recorded show, but only on the tv, never has been there on the iPad in this app. Only the nomad if it's been converted and downloaded.

No.. you need a Nomad or Slingbox

It should be noted that the nomad is NOT a streaming device.

The Slingboxen and assorted devices from Monsoon Multimedia are popular choices for streaming both live and recorded programming from a DVR.

Streaming was once a financial conference call Q&A subject and, as I recall, the answer was 2013 iff (if and only if) the content providers were amenable.

Yet. It could be at some point.

Well, we already had some streaming, so that's not accurate anymore. It's just not recordings form our boxes. It's live feeds at home on some stations, and video on demand anywhere we have a wifi connection, right now.

Since the subtopic appears to be streaming from DVRs (something DIRECTV has never offered at any level), we should be very careful not to confuse the issue with talk of authentication.

Not entirely true. You can stream DVR content to laptops currently.

They hired the marketing department (all the d* everywhere commercials) before they got the product out the door.

Like if Apple, HTC, or Samsung released a new phone without text messaging then said it was coming later.

Nomad has its own app. Right now DIRECTV everywhere is tied to the main dtv apps, not the nomad apps.

So, I can watch all my recorded DVR shows on my PC. But not on my iPad. I'm not sure I see the difference that would make them offer one but not the other.

Aren't they basically the same thing? A device connected to the same network as the DVR?

You mean like Apple did with Cut/Paste on the iPhone?

Many companies do stuff like that. It's called rushing your product to market before the competition gets their's there.

They haven't built a program for an iPad to do that yet. I can only hope, for as I think they will make it go through the nomad if/when we get it.

I'd like to see this along with access to the TODO list and the series manager.

As long as you're at home. Leave the comfort of your home LAN and it is a different story.

I'm pretty sure any confusion or misinformation presented in this thread didn't come from a non-DIRECTV subscriber.

DirecTV2PC requires a computer with a processor and graphics card that are pretty powerful. I'm guessing that the iPad/iPhone, and most Android devices just wouldn't be up to task to stream the recording, decode it, apply the proper coopy protection stuff, etc. in order to properly display the recordings. That is why you need the Nomad, it takes the recording from your DVR and transcodes it into a smaller, easier to use file that those devices can handle.

I'm also wondering if the content owners (the studios, channels, etc) aren't the ones forcing DirecTV to downscale everything to SD for the portable copies, and enforcing the 30 day limit on how long the files are good for. They don't want you to be able to make your own high quality HD copies that you can keep forever, they want you to buy them instead from places like the iTunes store etc.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
