Ever see this? Live TV window is under everything and even if I scroll to try to get to it, I can't take focus of the window at all to move, resize it or bring it front.

Is it possible to filter out all pay per view content from the movie list?

 

Well, you can make a custom list with whatever you wish in it (and omitting whatever you don't wish.) Worth it!

App can't find receivers. Have to use Waltzremote to do remote control. Also only 4 or so channels available to stream because the app can't see receivers. Tried force quit and also log off / on in the app, also checked App Store for updates. Nada. Assuming its the software on my receivers.

Nope, still didn't work. Nothing changed on the iPad. I posted an issue report in the appropriate thread based on the firmware version I have. It started since the version I have so that's the one thing that I can pinpoint this on.

You might try going through network setup on your DVRs, No need to change anything. Then reboot.

I did the network setup but did not reboot. Good idea. I did test the iPhone app as well. Voice search interacts with HR24-200 but live TV only allows the small handful of "on the go" channels. Obviously iphone and iPad have good network connection since waltz remote, dtv iremote and voice search work. Just no official iOS remote or the full gamut of live streaming channels.

Reboot happens tonight :-)

It's like DirecTV app doesn't think there are any receivers even though they are ping able.

Is there a way on the iPad app to browse the On Demand channel content like you can on the Android app? On Android I can 'browse by channel' and I see for instance 1501 HBO. I haven't found a way to do that on the iPad. Thanks.

Yup, but is not by channel number. there are a few ways to sort the list or you can search as well

I'm so tired of this obnoxious issue where the streaming video window will be behind everything and there's no way to click it to bring it front. Even if I move all the way to the right, touching it has no effect. The only fix is to force close the app and reopen it.

It seems to happen when watching live TV, you shut off the ipad or exit to home. Next time in the app it's likely to do this behavior.

Try a menu reset of each of your receivers.

Go through Network settings, Advanced, but just click through until you get to the "Congratulations"! screen, OK out and try again. Good luck!

Actually, if you're not going to change the IP address, it's quicker to just use "repeat network setup". It's equal to the "connect now" link on the "advanced page", but doesn't take forever to come up. And "Connect now" will not change a static IP address you may have previously set, under "advanced".
