I had this issue with the Giants game last week. Something they definitely need to work out.

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.

Why won't DTV allow me to stream recorded shows to the iPhone or iPad apps?

It's a feature request that we've asked for. While it is still a possibility, it does not seem like it will happen.

Issue: Sports on Today Does Not Give Option to Watch on iPad
I selected a baseball game listed in Sports on Today. I was presented with the options of Watch on TV, Info, and Record. When selecting Watch on TV, I get to choose between MLBN and MLBN HD. MLBN is one of the networks that streams Live to the iPad app. This option should be similar to the Watch option if I had selected Info. There you get the option to Watch on TV or Watch on iPad. When it brought up the channels for the game after selecting Watch on TV, there should be an option at the bottom for Watch on iPad there.

Issue: Sports on Today Channel Listing Shows Hidden Channels
When selecting to watch a game on TV, you are provided a list of channels the game is on. This list will include SD versions of channels (i.e. MLBN and MLBN HD) even though I have the settings in the app to hide SD duplicates.

Issue: Search Doesn't Find Shows in Guide
I'm guessing this is an issue. When entering in the name of a show in the Search box, it always finds matches and displays them below the box. When doing a search for Arrow and Chicago Fire, it would not find them. I needed to do a Keyword Search and then select TV Shows. I'm not not sure if this is just Smart Search not working or if not all shows appear on the drop down list. Here are some screen shots...

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.


Is DTV aware of this issue? If so are they working a resolution?

Thanks,
John

Yes, they monitor these issues threads, so they're aware of the problem and are likely working on a solution.

Scheduling a recording of an NFL game from the Sports page doesn't ask about adding an additional amount of time.

Scheduling from the guide does.

Issue: Titles Cut Off in Live TV Panel
When viewing the names of shows listed for channels in the Live TV panel, the titles are cut off when there is plenty of space to display the titles. The only channes that seems to use the whole width are those that allow viewing "On The Go".

Issues

program search doesn't look full 2 weeks out (heck today even 1 week). This AM I went to schedule an SL for Once Upon a Time so I can shift it to a newer DVR and it found no new episodes. Bringing up the program guide on a DVR did and allowed me to schedule.

Known issue. Deleted shows still haunting the playlist.

Issue: Date/Time Field in Search Results Too Small
When performing a search and getting a list of results, the Time column is not wide enough for long dates/times. In this case, Wed. 10/17 at 10 pm is shown as "Wed. 10/17, 22:..." I've attached a screen shot showing the issue.

One issue I noticed is that for my HR34-700 the "Currently Watching" just says updating and does not show the current channel tuned to. I do have the settings set to allow. It does display this information properly for my HR24-500 and H25-100.

Sorry for the late reply. Just checked, and it says "This remote recording (serial #=xxx) was not recorded because the program was no longer available. (3010/0/)"

Playlist Issues:

1) Filter is set for newest to oldest yet the app displays 'A' to 'Z'

2) Deleted programs are displayed.

I originally thought these were iOS 6 issues but the same issues exist in iOS 5.

Hope they update soon as I really like this app!

I am new to the ipad app and it is 10000% better than the android one (shame on Directv for such a huge difference).

1. I am not sure if I should be able to watch recorded shows from my DVRs on the iPad. I can watch live tv but not recorded shows in home? I thought the Nomad was to let me take them with me, but are they forcing us to buy it to watch in home too? I can use my pc with Directv2PC but not my ipad, but I can watch live tv on my ipad but not on the PC? Confused.

2. I was in a hotel this week and went to watch live tv on my ipad. The list was blank. I know that at least audience network was available.

3. When I got back home and went to watch live tv, the list was still blank. I could not get it back. I had to delete the app then download it again and all was good.

4. I then went to look at my playlist and it showed refreshing my dvrs. Then they had green ticks next to them, but nothing else. I waited for 10 minutes, all green ticks but no playlist. Deleted the app and downloaded again and the playlist was good - still cant watch on ipad though (see #1).

I am on the new ipad with ios6 if that helps.

The deleting and downloading then logging in again is only about 5 minutes so not a biggie but thought I should mention it as an issue/bug.

Love the app! Love the live tv in home! Love the remote! Love the currently playing! Love the guide! Just need these couple of minor bugs and would love to watch my playlist on the ipad in home (I understand no out of home - slingbox style - but I can get around that with vpn). Just dont understand the reasoning (or should I be able to and I have a problem with my app?) when I can watch it on my pc and I can watch live tv?
