While there are some live channels available on the iPad app, the only way to watch from your DVR playlist is through nomad.

nomad sits on your network and has clients for PC, iPhone/iPad, Mac and soon android that you request nomad to transcode and download to the client.

It's extremely handy while traveling or away from home because you don't need an internet connection to watch the downloaded content.

I noticed the mother ship updated the iPhone App, does anyone know when the iPad App will be updated as it has more issues than the iPhone App?

1.7.2 won't stream video to the apple tv via air play. It will stream audio however. I bought an Apple TV hoping my wife could use her new ipad 4 with the Directv app to stream Directv channels to the tv since we don't have a sat box in the bedroom. Disappointed the app is broke and won't allow it. I read it used to work before this update.

Edit: Just found out how to enable air play mirroring and it does work that way. Not sure if it makes a difference but I imagine the way you are supposed to do it through the Directv app would result in a better picture. Anyone know?

I think the picture quality is the same. I haven't seen a difference in mirroring with other video apps like HBO/Go.

Last time I checked, the HDMI cable also worked.

Not sure what you mean by last time you checked the HDMI cable worked. :confused:

I haven't checked the HDMI output on the iPad since 1.7 update. I'll try it today or tomorrow.

You mean connecting the ipad to the tv via an HDMI cable? Never even tried that.

I just saw this on Apple's site for our ipad with retina (ipad4)

AirPlay Mirroring to Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation) at 720p
AirPlay video streaming to Apple TV (3rd generation) at up to 1080p and Apple TV (2nd generation) at up to 720p
Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 720p through Lightning Digital AV Adapter and Lightning to VGA Adapter; video playback up to 1080p (sold separately)

We have the 3rd generation Apple TV so anytime we do video mirroring to the TV no matter how it will be up to 720P. Video streaming will be up to 1080P.

So it looks like it would be better quality if they would fix the Directv app so we can use video streaming with air play instead of video mirroring.

Reboot your router if you haven't. I assume your iPad sees your DVR?

Version 1.7.2 / iPad 2 on 6.01

Any attempt to search crashes app back to padtop. I've rebooted and closed multi-task but it crashes from home page, guide or about if you hit the search button.

Edit: Must be something on the backend. The iPhone app also crashes on hitting the search button.

My DirecTV sources claim it should be fixed by now. They're not sure what broke. I haven't tested it yet, though.

What are your sources saying about the iPad Playlist listing deleted programs?

Thanks,

Download fixed nothing till I did an uninstall and re-install then playlist works fine but I need to reset all of my prior customizations.

Available receiver list may have been tweaked for those with the retina display, but for those of us souls not having that and having a receiver count >9 cannot select the 10th receiver. Window allows scroll down but pops back up to line 9 when finger is lifted. Unable to select that last receiver.

Also the release notes state C31 support but mine is a no show

Remote scheduling is failing on HR2x and HR34.

Edit: I take that back! The History on the 34 indicated it had failed shortly after I scheduled it. However all three that I requested are recording- including the 34!
