Since the other topic of iPad issues was closed and we were referred here, I wanted to posted that I was still having problems with the Genie showing up on the iPad. It doesn't show up on the list of receivers. I have tried a refresh at www.directv.com/refresh as well as numerous menu->restarts. My VoD works and my receiver shows up as 'Connected to Internet: YES'. All of the sharing options are set to allow. Further, the 'Network Services' are all running and I can see them open on the router under UPNP.

 

I have called DirecTV several times and they can't figure out the issue.

 

Just noting that although neat looking, the app didn't seem to offer any help on this front.

Have you tried to re-validate the IP address of your Genie from inside the iPad App?

 

Under settings , blue right arrow.. validate.

There is a settings: account settings option that comes up OFF by default now for this. Had the same issue and later stumbled on this just stomping around in the works.

Just toggle it to on and it's all good.

I don't see an IP listed under receivers at all. There are no receivers listed to 're-validate'.

 

Also, on the "account settings option that comes up OFF by default now for this" -- where is that found? On the receiver?

New iPad app menu. Select 'settings'; it will open a new menu, select 'account settings'; and you'll be there.

"Remember Login" is the toggle I described. In the new app after update it defaults to "Off".

 

By toggling it to "On" you will not be challenged for password each time you start the app.

Are any receivers listed at all, under "Settings", "Receiver Control"?

There's no direct streaming support from your DVRs to your iPad. Do you have a GenieGo? If so, you can use the GenieGo client to stream recordings from your DVRs to your iPad. Hopefully "at this time" is an indication that GenieGo capability will eventually be merged into the DirecTV app.

You have another thread when this same question came about and you said you were able to do this at some point and time.  As we all know, in order to watch on your iPad from your DVR you would need the GenieGo device

Yes. Hopefully at some point, the DAFI will include GenieGO support. But for now and the near future, the GenieGo device is needed to playback recorded shows on mobile devices.

not exactly true. I have modern marvels recorded on H2 and I can play that recording on my iPad via DAFI however movies and network TV shows are not available. This is what confused me I knew I could play something back but forgot it was only that show so when it didnt work on other shows I thought somehow I was now broken.

100% true. what is confusing you is that Modern Marvels happens to be available On Demand so is streaming via the interwebs not through the local network have you had the GenieGO

I had the same experience. . . I recorded 'The Pianist' and missed the first few minutes.  In searching for a replay, DAFI showed the copy on my HR34 and said I could watch it on the iPad.

 

But in playing it, it was a Showtime on demand playback.

 

Very nice, particularly since you can't play VOD on GenieGo.

"Remember Login" is the toggle I described. In the new app after update it defaults to "Off".

 

By toggling it to "On" you will not be challenged for password each time you start the app.

 

 

Glad I saw this!  Having to reenter my password has been annoying me since I first installed the update.  Was about to uninstall/reiinstall but searched here first.  If there is any way to change the default or notify folks more prominently of this, I suggest (to the directv-ipad overlords) they do that.  An option would be to add a 'remain logged in' checkbox or help-message on the login screen.

If you are having problems with DIRECTV App for iPad version 2.0.12, please send crash logs via PM to me (Stuart Sweet).

When the app crashes, please sync your iPad before uninstalling and reinstalling. Then get the crash logs after you have sync'ed.

Here's a link to tell you how to get crash logs from iTunes. http://www.ondemandw...ind-crash-logs/

I am loving this app update!  It is so much easier to find On Demand content and push it to one of my receivers.  I've been loading "Orphan Black" on to 1 of my receivers and then watching later.  It's great!

 

On the downside, the "my networks" doesn't seem to be working correctly.  When I select that option, HBO & Starz still show up in the list even though I do not currently subscribe to those.  There is also a network - Karaoke (which must have songs with the words across the bottom and sounds fun for a party) - which shows up in my networks but will not download songs to my receivers.  Not sure if this is a paid channel or not.  I haven't found much about it (I haven't looked much either...).

I still have the recordings - got a complete one. . . but a search now only shows upcoming on 553/554.

 

Don't know if it was a feature or not!

 

I would like the search to be a little more context driven . .  if you're in Playlist, search the playlist first.
