- General bug fixes and improvements

This will be the last update that supports iOS 5. Future updates will require iOS 6 or later.

Just frigging great! :(

Not sure what future updates will bring, but I'm not upgrading my iPad 1st gen just to satisfy the GenieGo.

I had just canceled my NHL CI subscription because of issues with the GenieGo, but Islesfan reported yesterday that it had been "fixed". So until I saw this, I was contemplating resubscribing (based on whether I could use the GenieGo with CI). Now I'm not.

I don't think the original iPad goes beyond 5.

My point exactly. Mine has 5.1.1.

When trying to stack 30SKIPs on the iPhone 4, the controls disappear every time I click ">>|". Same with 30REPLAY.

What's so wrong with this? If you have iOS 5 now on your iPad, this version will work. Just any future versions after this will not.

And that is why I said 'not sure what future updates will bring'.

Never thought OOH would be implemented on the GenieGo. What great feature is next that requires iOS6 or above?

The 'Stop Transcoding' dialog is HUGE.  And has always come up even when not necessary.

Just putting this out there again... :)

 

iOS Client v3.0.037

 

Feature Request: TrickPlay Functions / Progressive TimeBar

I would again like to ask for true TrickPlay functionality be added to the TrickPlay functions. This would include the ability to Skip Ahead 30 seconds and Skip Back 6 seconds. Also, it would be nice to be able to use the TImeBar to perform a progressive FF or RW, where if you drag left/right near the TimeBar it would skip time at a high rate of speed, whereas, if you moved your finger lower on the screen and then left/right, the speed of the FF/RW would be slower. I believe the built-in iOS video player has this ability.

 

 

Issue: Shows Missing From Ready To Download

Note: This issue somewhat resolved itself upon upgrading to this version. While all the episodes of Copper are now there, I still only have the 7 episodes of Ripper Street.

This is an interesting one. I pulled up the GenieGo app on my iPad and iPhone and selected the Filter for Ready To Download. I found that the shows listed on my iPhone were different than what listed on my iPad. Specifically, the iPhone shows that there are 10 episodes of Copper and 8 episodes of Ripper Street. My iPad shows 5 episodes of Copper and 7 episodes of Ripper Street. I tried forcing closed that app and relaunching, but had the same result.

I've attached some screen shots from my iPhone and iPad.

While we're talking about features, how about including the source DVR in a program info?  It's impossible to tell who's talking and who's not.  In addition, with the same recording duplicated on two dvrs, only one shows up (not a folder) and it's impossible to tell which one.

 

I know multiple DVRs are not a big percentage of the population but I'd bet GG users have more DVRs than the 'abnormal' user.  Toss us a bone.

 

DAFI even lists the source DVR.

GenieGo Client v3.0.037

 

Issue: GenieGo Not Releasing Free Space

I recently noticed that GenieGo on my iPad was taking up 8.9GB of space. In checking the app, I found that I only had one epsiode of Ripper Street. After deleting that episode, it still shows that GenieGo was using 7.7GB. I checked on my iPhone, which also had nothing stored on it and GenieGo is taking up only 18MB there. At one point I did have about 30 episodes of different shows on the iPad, but had deleted them. Apparently, even though they are deleted, GenieGo is still holding onto the space. I had to delete and reinstall GenieGo for the free space to correct itself.

I noticed the exact same thing (GenieGo not releasing free space) and was going to start a new thread before seeing this one. I don't currently have any content on my iPad and it shows the app is consuming nearly 1 GB of space. Is there any way to reclaim this space other than deleting and reinstalling the app?

I may find myself in need of this information soon myself.  Was wondering if anybody tried a soft reset (I think that is the term) of the ipad to see if that worked.  Would be easier and faster then uninstall and re-install of app.

Not sure what you mean by a soft re-set of the iPad. Might you try it?

Holding down the on/off button (small button on edge) and home button (round button on face) at the same time until the apple logo comes on, then release.  I found videos, but some called it "hard reset" while some called it a "soft reset".  I might suggest doing your own search and watch a few videos.  Some videos even suggested it was a good thing to do this from time to time.

 

I had read about when uninstalling and reinstalling the DirecTv app on the ipad, it was recommended to do this before reinstalling, and that it would clear any remnants of the app that may not have uninstalled correctly.  I tried it, it didn't fix the problem I was having with the DirecTv app (a whole other story), but everything that was on the ipad was still there and functioning properly as though nothing had been done.

 

I do not currently have the memory problem, but will be deleting some movies nest week and will check the memory before and after.  Should it appear that the memory usage is overstated, I will have no reservations trying this before uninstalling and reinstalling the geniego app.

I don't have a GenieGO yet. I'm thinking of ordering one and I wanted to read about the iPad app in the App Store. But I can't find it in the AppStore either by searching or looking at other apps by DirecTV. How do you find it?

There is no native iPad app, just use the iPhone IOS app, it works fine.

I see. Thanks. Does it fill the iPad screen then? And landscape viewing works? Are they planning an iPad app? Is there a GenieGO FAQ?

Yes it fills the screen. If you had asked me two years ago I would have told you that an iPad app was coming. Now I rather doubt it.
