Okay, I am noticing that the iTunes store keeps flipping back and forth to listing the iPad app as v1.6.6 and v1.7.2. Not quite sure why it is doing that.

To make it even more confusing... Sometimes when I click on the small "i" to bring up the Quick Info box, it will show it as being v1.7.2, but then when I click on the app to open the app page, it shows as v1.6.6.

Nice catch! I updated a bunch of apps last night, and might not have found this so quickly without your posts.
For the last 24 hours, my playlist would not update. Hope this fixes that!

Er.... It didn't. After 3 quits and restarts, it's still on

Still no way to dismiss the detail in guide list view.
Playlist displays shows that are already deleted from HR34 even after pressing update now.

Do you have an HR34?

My issues started when I upgraded to that unit, though it's easy to make wrong cause and effect conclusions!

Playlist Shows Deleted Programs and I'm clueless to why?

I have '2' HR20's networked and I see "deleted" programs from both of them on my iPad (not on either HR20 Playlists). Never had this issue on previous versions......any ideas?

Noticed several "Posts" with other people with this same issue.....

Thanks,
John

Many of us have been asking for that functionality since the iPad app was first introduced.

App is showing in playlist a recording of Weeds on a HR34. Problem is that recording has been viewed and deleted on the HR34, the client won't let me delete it. I've tried shutting down the app, cloud booting the iPad and rebooting the HR34, still there.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I'm having issues with it not refreshing and removing shows from the app that have been deleted as well.

Updated to iOS 6 and now app crashes when deleting a program from the playlist that has already been deleted from the D V R. Under iOS 5 you would get an error message, now it just crashes.

Issue: Recording via "Sports on Today" Records Wrong Show
At 7:18 today, I realized that I had not set the Giants game to record. I opened up the iPad app and selected the Giants game that was listed under My Teams. I selected the Record option and then selected to have it extended by 90 minutes. A little after 9pm, I went to my PlayList to start playback of the game. I noticed that the item that was currently recording was the NFL Pre-Game Show and was going to until 9:30 (an hour and a half after it was scheduled to end).

At no time in selecting the game to record or adding time to it did it state that it was going to be recording the pre-game. Of course, there's the issue that I didn't want it to record the pre-game as I wanted the game recorded.

Anyone know when an update will be issued to address the Playlist showing "Deleted" programs?

I do not understand why when switching receivers it wants to either show the HR34 and the receiver I am looking at's playlist together or just show me my HR34 no matter what other receiver I want to look at. Seems hookie.

I encountered this issue today for the first time. It also happened to be the first time I had deleted any programs from my DVR's since upgrading my iPad 3 to iOS 6. Deleted and reinstalled the DIRECTV iPad app which resolved the issue. The iPad app is now correctly reflecting the programs in place on both of my HD DVR's. I also just deleted the Ravens game which in turn is no longer showing on the iPad app.

Also have the out of sync playlist issue since IOS 6. Re-installed the app and that cleared up the list. The problem is now back. Refreshing the playlist does not work. Seems like the app needs to be made IOS 6 compatible. Only DVR is an HR34.
