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

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'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.

IDK about the tablet app, but the Android Phone app is useless for scheduling recordings. Used to work great but for a long while now once you find something in the guide to record it just circle of deaths forever.

I don't know which versions you are running but I have the phone app version 3.3.011 and the tablet app version 2.2.7 on my Note2. I just set recordings using both apps on my living room and bedroom dvrs and both are recording.
The only suggestion I can make is to uninstall and reinstall. Clean caches and start fresh.

I wasn't 100% sure it would solve your issue, but I'm glad it did. That is one of my first problem solving methods when it comes to phone and phone app issues, besides doing a full wipe and a complete re-install of everything, rom included.

Program too big for Android

 

Has anyone ever seen an issue where long recordings, 4 + hours, will not transfer to an Android phone?  The Android phone I am using is an HTC Droid Incredible 2 running Android 2.3.  These same recordings transfer fine to an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S.

 

I would like to upgrade the HTC to a newer model running Android 4.X.  I am considering a Note 2/3 or a Nexus 5.

Is anyone else seeing a 'DirecTV has stopped' message when trying to do pretty much anything? Occasionally I can get it to work long enough to schedule a recording, but it seems after so many seconds it always crashes, no matter what I'm trying to do...

When the hell are they gonna update the android apps for lollipop? This is nuts. Sunday Ticket app was updated a couple of days if that after the lollipop update. Genie Go or their own DirecTV app? Not so much. wtf?<br />

It stopped opening on my Asus Model ME172V, Android: v4.1.1. Software stated your app version no longer supported. Please download latest version. Go to Google and get message my device is not compatible for this version.

Nice update!

Thank you for clarifying. 

    The GEnieGo box is use for OUT OF HOME service. Directv has not upgraded the DVR to transfer the OOH from the Geniego box to the DVR.

The latest update I see in Google Play for both Tablets and Phones are dated May 4th. My Tablet is running Lollipop so I can't reproduce it on the tablet app, but for the phone app, it's still working just fine on my Galaxy S2 running Android 4.1.2. (4.1.2 and 4.1.1. are on API 16, and it's extremely rare for something to be cutoff within the same API)

I just downloaded the apk file for the tablet app and decompiled it, it should support Android as low as version 4.0 (API 14). Maybe there's some other requirement not being met.

Can you go into the settings for your tablet, go to where it lists Applications, and post the version of the DirecTV app you have installed as well as what version of Google Play Services is installed?

That version came out back in September, the latest version is 4.4.104 which came out in early May. The app's Manifest file says it should work with the version of Android installed on your tablet, so there has to be something else blocking Google Play from letting you install it.

It might be the lack of GPS on your tablet, starting with version 4.3.008, which came out in November, they added support for live streaming of the NBC O&O's which required them to add GPS and other location requirements to the app's properties. (Since then, they also added support for the ABC and Fox O&Os along with a few other channels that require location services for blackouts)

So it is lack of having the GPS location for my bed that is making this app useless for me.

 

How nice.

If you want to try something, you can try downloading the latest apk file directly from APKPure and installing it manually:
https://apkpure.com/...navigator?hl=en

This site is safe, they do not modify the app at all, they just download it directly from Google Play's servers and keep an archive. (Just to be sure I took my own local copy and compared it to the one from APKPure, there is no difference at all in the code)

However, I don't know how it will react to the lack of GPS if you try to watch something that requires geo location.

App appears to be gone. Found and installed.

 

I don't watch anything on the tablet. I just use it to setup recordings on any DVR in my home.

Latest DirecTV for android release 4.5.011 produces "DirecTV has stopped" message on many users' tablets and phones. 4.5.010 was OK but there's no way to go back.
