I chose to display two hours on the guide on my 7 inch tablet....and yet the DVR guide on my 46" HDTV can only show 90 minutes? I know we've talked about the guide display before in other threads but that is just silly.

As stated earlier in this thread, I side-loaded it onto my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with no problems. Works and looks great!

I went to the Google App Store to get the latest version of DirecTv Android App for Tablets and downloaded what was presented, ver 1.1.3 to my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The date on it is 3/7/13.

I've been playing with it for well over a week and cannot get streaming to work. Keep getting technical issues error 5101 although I can stream trailers with no problems.

Called d* tech support and got what I considered to be the run around. Was told there were connection issues and d* was working on them and I should keep trying. Checked the discussion threads on d* web site and found that this problem has been around for a while.

So:

What is the most current ver of the Android app for tablets? Is it 1.1.3 or 2.2.3? If its 2.2.3, how do I get it into my device?

Does the most current ver stream with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1?

Any info or help will be appreciated.

1.1.3 is the latest for Android tablets. 2.2.3 is a different app, designed for phones (and available for tablets, as well).

The tablet app does live streaming on my Nook Color running CyanogenMod10 (Android 4.1.2 Jellybean) but it isn't great (resolution and lip sync issues). Other functions work quite well. I had to sideload in order to install it.

I just checked my phone and the version there is 2.4.3 (probably updated since that thread was started).

Model #GT-P7510
Android Version: 3.1

Getting the following error message when I try to launch the program:

"The application DIRECTV (process.com.directv.navigator) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"


Then given the option of "Force Close" or "Report".

Any idea as to what is causing this?

The beauty of Android, just sideload it. Turn on unknown sources, download this link and install. Works great on my Nexus 7.

Downloaded this on my kindle fire hd. Open the app, sign in. As soon as I touch the screen after sign in, it says directv has stopped. Cannot get it to work. Any suggestions?

Vinny, this is probably the problem. As Bubblepuppy alluded to, your screen resolution is probably not compatible. In layman's terms, the app is probably written for larger screens. :)

Sorry folks but I find this app useless on my moto Xoom. I don't want a glorified remote. I want to stream live TV and watch shows from my dvr.

I use my windows phone 8 to set recordings when not at home.

I'm a bit disappointed in this.

Did this ever get fixed to support the Nexus 7? Or has there been any announcement of a fix in the works?

Side loaded to my Nexus 7 since the day it was released.

At this point it would be hard to live without the application; I use it all the time!

The 'Quick Tune List' is the fastest way to change channels. I don't use the DirecTV remote much if ever at this point.

LiveTV works well but it does re-buffer a tad at home. Does not re-buffer often but it will do so every few minutes. Smooth as butter from a few hot spots I have tried outside of my home. Still the 'LiveTV' is a great option and I use it a good deal as well. Other than the small buffer issue I have no issues of any kind with this application. It is pure heaven! :)

Only had to obtain the pkg file and set settings/security option to allow loading of packages from sources other than the play store.

And no--- my Nexus 7 is not rooted!

NOT ROOTED AND NO WORK AROUND'S USED OTHER THAN SIDE LOADING

I have attached a screen shot to show how it looks on my Nexus 7.

Has anyone gotten a Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 10.1 model GT-P5113 running Android ver. 4.1.1 to successfully stream anything other than trailers. So far this thing has been a big disappointment.

When I first start it up I get a black GUI with the message "Unfortunately, DIRECTV has stopped" and 2 buttons, one labeled "Report" and the other labeled "OK". Then hit OK and restart the app and it comes up as it should.

When trying to play content I get a connection error with code 5101.

On my HP Touchpad the app installs fine but I can only access 2 live channels (audience and axs.TV). The rest are greyed out. Any ideas?

are you connected to your home wifi and does your home network have your hd-dvr or genie connected to it?

only on the go channels will be available to stream if the app can not your hd-dvr or genie.

Yes both boxes are on the network. The weird thing is my iPhone app allows streaming of all channels fine. Its just the touchpad that can't seem to realize I am on the home network.

Best source for the apk file? I have the N7 and would love to side load. I have the full blown app on my iPad and I love it!! But I would love to have it on my N7 as well.
