The Watch on Phone is the only feature of this app that is not intended to work on tablets yet.
DIRECTV should clarify that in the app description to eliminate ANY confusion. Other apps have done this by pointing out feature differences between devices and it woudl server DIRECTV's customers to do the same here.
The emphasis is on Phone. But if you think a phone only feature not working on tablets is a issue then so be it. There are apps that have tablet only features that aren't intended to work on phones, I don't see that as a issue as I understand the intended uses.
I'm reporting based on the "release notes" as provided by DIRECTV in the app description. It does say "compatible with phones with 2.2 and above", but it also says it's compatible with my device. DIRECTV can take care of this with an enhanced description and/or provisioning the Google Play Store deployment to deny permission for tablet users to install the updated app.
The show only HD Channel feature works just fine on my Galaxy SGII, and has worked on the other 3 Android phones I've used it on.
Cool. I'm sure it works just fine on many other phones and maybe other devices as well, but as we all know there are a lot of devices in the Android ecosystem. Now DIRECTV can try to identify why it's not working on the Galaxy Nexus and the Xoom, both Google Experience devices, when using Browse by Date and Time.
I would like discussions in this thread limited to Android phone use.
If it can be installed, it can be used, and DIRECTV customers can contact DIRECTV about it. We should let the DIRECTV customers smart enough to visit DBSTalk discuss it here.
