In the app description it is stated that wifi is needed for certain functions, the remote is one of those functions.

It appears that the update to the update fixed the issue. After clearing the cache, which didn't solve the ip retention issue before the recent first update, fixed the ip search and retention.
Interestingly, the app for tablets has always found and retained the ip addresses of my dvrs on my Note2. Now both apps work fine.

Same experiences here.

I seem to still be having the issue even after taking the November 26th update, plus clearing the data and cache. Can you tell me what I need to do? I still have to put in the IP address manually each time I start the app, or the receiver will remain greyed out.

Perhaps clear data/cache and then uninstall and reinstall the app, marty.  That's what worked for me.

I'm gonna give this a shot tonight. Some even suggested a reboot in between. It won't hurt anything...

There is a new update to the previous updates that is supposed to fix the ip retention and detection issues. Just downloaded it but haven't tried it yet.

The app updated tonight and it does fix the ip retention issue.  It is running an an ASUS 7" Memo tablet with no problems.

Just confirming what others have shared. I deleted the cache and data for the app, reinstalled the app, and since verifying my IP address once, it is now reconnecting to the receiver every time I restart the app. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

I have two HD DVRs on my network and neither my primary phone or primary tablet have EVER found either unless I manually enter the IP addresses every time.

There are two DirecTV apps. The one for tablets worked for me perfectly. It even worked on my phone, although the screen didn't fit. The updated phone app would not recognize my WiFi network, and forgot the settings when entered manually. I deleted the phone app, re-installed it, and it works like it should, recognizing my receivers right away.

Where is the default Android storage location for the GenieGo app?   I can seem to find it with my file explorer.

I'm still having issues with the Android app and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on getting it working.  Keep in mind the iPhone and iPad apps both work fine.

 

The app sees the IP but if I try to stream all but a small number of programs it tells me that I have to enable access (which has already been done) and tells me that "No Connected Receivers Found".  If I go into the settings it shows the IP status as Valid/Found Receiver.

 

Signal strength is not an issue nor is network speed in the house, I'm wired for gigabit and have the wireless point in my office about 15 feet LOS to the device.

 

I've done pretty much everything listed here.  Cleared the cache, deleted and re-installed the app etc.  Still no go.

 

If anyone has any other suggestions, I'm all ears.

 

Thx

I just checked the version on my Galaxy S4 and it is version 3.3.005

 

It picks up all 3 of my DVrs (HR44 and 2 HR24s)

 

I have scheduled recordings with the app and watched some live TV with it, without issue.

 

I haven't found a single program from my Playlist that says anything other than, "This show is currently not available On Demand on your Phone", when I attempt to "Watch on Phone"

 

So, watching some stuff live from the Guide works fine, but watching my own recordings does not appear to work...it doesn't look buggy, it looks like something is missing from the process to actually let me watch my own recordings.

(I am on WIFI, in the house). I really don't care much about that feature, as I'm unlikely to watch TV on a screen that small.

You need a Genie Go in order to watch your recordings on your phone/tablet.


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."

Yep, it actually tells you the first time you go to the playlist

I've had the app a long time, I must have missed that. Again, I don't much care about that feature on a phone.

I was referring  to the tablet

I'm getting an Android tablet soon and I wanted to test out some apps on a PC Android Emulator, YouWave. But all I get with the DirecTV app is a short viewing popup about 'DirecTV Is Not Responding'. And then screen turns solid black.
