No.  I didnt know that's not normal.  If its not normal than that is a bug they should fix in the next version.  I will try to delete and re-install to see how it behaves.

but I dont think is a widespread bug. this was reported one time, by the same user here, and folks who replied said it was not happening to them either. FWIW, it does not happen to my app

Ok deleted, rebooted, reinstalled and logged in. It no longer shows the help splash at every login. Now the issue is some is the home streaming doesn't work. Palladia for example is greyed out but DIY works. I can control my HR24 or H24 and also see the now playing, so it is communicating on the network.

It's happening to me as well, even with the latest update. Annoying for sure.

 

I've found the overhaul of the app to be extremely disappointing. My most used feature has always been the browse by channel thing, which formerly was a one-click link off the opening screen, and now is several clicks deep (and initially it's a mystery where it is). And the information on individual program pages seems haphazardly organized; the initial summary doesn't even tell you what channel it's on.

 

I would gladly take the old version back.


All this has happened before. All this will happen again.

if they are any iPhone 3 and 3G users out there, they won't no longer be able to use the app anymore

In the I just need a new toy department. . .

Will this app load and run on a current gen iPod Touch? I have been using an old iPhone4 for watching the Tour de Frace as I move about the house in the AM. (Saving my my current 5s for real work and such)

With the better screen and the A5 processor (which is slated to go on iOS8 when released) iPaid2 owners will get uplifted to a fifth iOS level. But digress did I. Just seems I would get better service out of the iPod (new toy of course).

I have noted that my iPhones lock up after about an hour or so streaming and require I restart the stream or in one case app to resume. This is consistent on both models I have. Neither of my iPaids (2 or Air) have the issue though st some point they get a dailog box asking if I wish to continue wondering if this is the same code branch sans dialog box on the iPhones.

Anyway the iPod Touch is essentially an iPhone minus the phone network internals so I assume this app should load and run?

Anybody try this already?

Try it, if you get the the registration screen, you're probably ok.  That's the time to decide if you want to burn a license.

 

And it's been a CRAZY Tour!!

Been doing live streaming for the TDF and junk TV today while doing some debugging on Oracle Jobs on my QA Taxware system at work via VPN. Still have two GG licenses up for grabs may try the GG specific app on the iPod. I can shuffle some licenses around come Aug 4 anyhow.

The GG still is inconsistent for in home streaming but its "live-able" but still disappointing sort of. Transcode and downloads though are great!

I find killing the multi-task on the iPad works to improve things. . . but then I find that our local PBS station substituted Tavis Smiley for Charlie Rose at midnight last night when I started the iPad at 5 am today to watch Charlie.

iPod Touch works great! Same issue though as with the iPhones 4 and 5s after about 40 minutes the stream terminates. Wondering if this is a protective builtin so phone users don't inadvertantly kill their battery? I am using the old iPhone and the iPod Touch as mini TVs so this unexpected termination is frustrating but I am using these far differently than the avarage bear. . .:)

I need to stopwatch these and see if it is a constant or it is some other condition. Nice feature if the time duration was a user setting either by time or episode ending though. Also should verify if power connected makes issue go away.

GenieGo app on this seemed promising but once it hit lockup it would only free momentarily and relock. Exit and reenter showed GenieGo in use and not accessable. Will play around with this again today.

I can confirm that on my iPhone 5 that after a long time if streaming, the video will freeze.

I had Bar Rescue on live while making a chicken stir fry dish in the Kitchen. I'm not sure how long it took to freeze, but I was able to prep and cook the meal and start eating it. Right in the beginning of my meal (first few bites) it froze.

It was less than an hour but surely more than 35 minutes.

no problem on iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.  Is just that the app is not optimized for these devices...

The only thing is that its very challenging at times to get a good live stream of HBO when Game of Thrones is on Sunday nights.  I know its a real popular show, so I guess the bandwidth from DirecTV cannot always keep up.

There are no closed captions on Game of Thrones on the streaming app either.  Regardless of the setting on and CC1 or CC3 selected.  Even toggling them off and on again, they do not work at all.  Captions used to work, not sure what happened.
