Version 2.4.0 still does not stream on the Asus TF700T. Does Directv support Android Tablets? Or do they only support Ipad?

Live TV works on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus but the on demand streaming still results in a 5100 error.

My Setup
Directv '98

This is looking very good, I am able to watch about any channel 'live' now on my Nook Tablet with CM10. It works great on the home network, I'll try tomorrow from work and see what stuff I can watch.

I keep getting "Unable to start a stream". Nook Color running CM10 nightly build 20121219 (JB). My Moto Bravo (Froyo) gets the same message so it may be a server issue.

All features work on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone.
Streaming video does not work on my Le Pan II tablet.
Both are Jelly Bean.

I was able to view Live TV on my HP Touchpad running CM9 @ the latest nightly. Also works fine on my stock JellyBean Galaxy S3. The feature I would really like is to watch something off my DVR, is that planned for the Android platform?

Last I heard, that feature is some years away. I believe it was mentioned at some sort of financial call.

In the interim, there are outboard solutions like the Slingbox that work well today.
