The exemption does not apply to iPads.

From http://www.loc.gov/t...010/10-169.html

(2) Computer programs that enable wireless telephone handsets to execute software applications, where circumvention is accomplished for the sole purpose of enabling interoperability of such applications, when they have been lawfully obtained, with computer programs on the telephone handset.

An iPad is not a wireless telephone handset. Of course things could change in the next ruling, but it could either expire altogether, or be expanded.

It's a grey area right now, but been assumed to include iPads until an official ruling is made.

Doesn't really matter if it's legal or not. It's not going to change anything.

I'm not an Apple Groupie, I have a Blackberry. But rooted phones have caused me issues at work so if the exemption expires, I might be able to get them to agree that we don't allow them to connect to company resources and I don't have to support them.

I reinstalled the older version of the APP, but it no longer works.


My old version of the app is not working either, it get stucked at login. I try to download the latest release of xcon ver 37beta and now when open directtv a msg popup " xcon currently dont support this versin of directv..."

We will have to wait for a new xcon release.


I tried that too, it just hangs at the authentication stage.


I haven't upgraded to the new version yet and when I try to use the prev version of the app which worked a few days ago I enter my password and it just sits there with no message of any kind. Yes I am JB but I am referring to the LAST version which has not changed and has always worked not the new version.

What I think is happening is on previous releases a message would pop up saying "YOU MUST UPDATE." I think that is where it is hanging up.

BTW, the IPHONE version always works fine on the IPAD whether JB or not which is all I really need to schedule recordings. I have no use for "DirecTV Everywhere" (or hardly anywhere as the case may be :)).

Neither do I. I have a Slingbox.

I've tried both the old and new versions, nothing works, just hangs. There is an xCon update waiting to be released as soon as DirecTV fixes their app.

Yep, very slow to load it, when it does. I have better luck if I start the app (using iPad new) and letting it sit for awhile before trying to get to the playlist. I have 6 HD DVR's with a bunch of content so maybe just too much to handle at startup time?

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Yes. I've noticed that overall the entire app is much slower to load everything than the previous one did.

I thought one of the release notes said that the app now supports multi-tasking? When I switch out of the app and then back in, it still has to reauthenticate every time. I've noticed no difference at all in anything other than it being slower.

I've only got two DVR's, although they both have a lot of recordings, but it's been sitting on "Loading Playlist" for over an hour.

Ha. Your assuming that DIRECTV app is broken based on it not working with a jb device? DIRECTV has always said they will work hard to make their app not work with jb devices because of copyright issues. And they are smart, so I have to wonder if one day they won't figure out how to make their app never work again on a jb device.

That's not right. Something is wrong, have you checked the version of yours? Maybe it didn't update right. That should not happen, unless you have it set to log out somehow.

I think that it's a little slower upfront because it's trying to cache everything, including all guide data. But not positive yet. If so, that means after it finally does load it should be faster... I hope...

Thanks for the confirmation. I just did a hard reset of my iPad, and the app is now multitasking without having to reauthenticate every time.

Much better!!

Thanks again.
