Make sure that in the system setup, under Whole Home, that External Devices is set to "Allow."

Anyone help here?

When I'm on wifi at home, it says no DVRs connected.. But my DVR has an IP and I can ping it. I've got 2 HR23s.

Any idea?


I have the same problem: No DVRs connected.

+1 for an Android app.


I'd just be happy if I could get my Nomad ap that's been "coming soon to Android" for how long?

So I manually put in the IP address of my DVR and it worked. Then I went off wifi and back in, and the info was gone and the app was broke.

Wtf?

what does jailbreaking the iPad get you?

For me, lots of great OS patches my favorites being no lock, screen on while charging (not a good idea for the iPad 3 but great for an iPhone), NO spotlight search, profiles based on location, time, date, whether your near WIFI (turns off cell data), lots of themes and many many other nice OS patches. If you're not into that type of customization then it's not worth it. Sorta like rooting and custom roms and custom themes.

xCon does work, but it hasn't been updated to work with this brand new version. I guess we will have to wait a few days.


Thanks. Hopefully it won't take too long to update. I notice that this app was developed originally for the DirecTV app, and later expanded to others, so I would hope the author has a vested interest in fixing it up quickly :)

Pretty stoked about this but the prices to watch on-demand are rather pricey for iPad viewing - 5.99 for current rentals, same as on the big set. However I love having options and kudos to DTV for getting this out. Also, LOVE that Fox Sports Soccer is one of the live channels and Sony Movie channel on-demand is part of TV Everywhere. Getting ESPN networks would be a COUP but not holding my breath.

If you try to use HBO Go or Max GO it won't display the video, only audio. I think those premium channels wrote code into those apps to prevent them from being displayed on other devices. Makes sense if you don't subscribe to those services but grab someone's login & password to watch on your TV.


If you have an iPad 2 or a 3rd generation iPad you can airplay anything even if the app doesn't allow it. Just double tap the home button and then slide all the way to the left and you will see that you can mirror what ever you have on your iPad and it will show up on your TV full screen if you have an Apple TV 2nd or 3rd generation,if the show you are watching is in widescreen. You will get The Video with the Audio this way.

Not looking to start a flame war as to whether it's right or wrong, or how to do it, just what does jailbreaking the iPad get you?


it gets you the right to add things not in the itunes store or to add or remove anything you want and use 3rd party sources. which is completely legal

As always here at DBSTalk...a nice job on the First Look.

Some folks perhaps take these for granted, but the work that goes into both the testing and First Look construction is significant and appreciated.

Kudos.

Just updated mine last night, video quality is actually pretty good. Would like to see Retina Graphics next update hopefully to support Gen3 ipad. (I got a gen3 on release day) A lot of pay content unless you sort by premium service. I'm never paying to rent a movie on my ipad. The live TV works so well I wish they would let you access all the channels you sub or your DVR list.

For those having problems app not finding the DVR's, give your boxes a static ip, if you don't know how just google how to do it. It's pretty easy won't take long. Then reboot your router & IRD's should be good 2 go.

There will be something like that in the not-too-distant future.

What about a Mac? OS X? or are you just referring to Windows devices?

Like previous versions, app worked fine at home.

However, still no luck outside of home wi-fi. It is possible that something might be blocked on the public wi-fi I'm using, but I can't get anything to come up. Everything just shows the animating icon like it is doing something, but it never does. (I was using the Watch on iPad option, but to no avail).

Meanwhile those of us with Android devices are still waiting for some love ;)


That is why I gave up on waiting. Just bought an iPad 3 and am selling my Xoom. Android is too fragmented... Development is lacking for it and when something does come out for it, it is usually treated as a 2nd class citizen.

I'm trying to figure out what this App does and doesn't do with regard to streaming outside the home.

Can I stream live TV?

Can I stream my recorded shows?

Can I stream VOD?

Are there any limitations to streaming VOD? I am not a premium subscriber.


Thanks.
