I'm not seeing the multiple playlist problem on the new DAFI with GG.  In fact, the old GG client on my wife's iPad only shows one program of duplicates. . . whether in a folder with other episodes or individually.

I reconfirmed it again by deleting recordings until a single recording was available then the single recording is then available to download. It also doesn't matter which DVR as it is across the entire setup.

I also noticed earlier today that OOH was not 100%. Not all recordings on a DVR would show up. None are VOD or OTA. No rhyme or reason.

Can you list a couple that aren't showing up?

Going from memory as I am home now. I may get the wrong DVR name but you should get the point.

I had (3) recordings of “Person of Interest"- 1on HR 34 and (2) others on HR24-500 (Upstairs & Study). Only the 34 recording was showing up.

I had (10) recordings of “Two and a Half Men" that are split between the Hr34 a HR24-500 (Study). Only the Study recordings were showing up on OOH.

I could see if one specific DVR was not showing up but not the mish-mash of recordings.

No rhyme or reason.

I just spent the last hour or so trying the PC client and the DAFI / IOS client on iPad4.  In general, most anything I tried to stream on the PC client worked fine.  Probably less than 50% streamed from the iPad the first time.

 

Also DAFI took lots longer to start and play reliably.  With a couple of crashes, it's not as stable and needs restarting after killing the multi-task more than the GG client for the ipad ever needed.

GenieGo integration opportunities.  Two of them have already been well documented here.  The third...I must be missing something...

 

1.  30 second skip/FF

2.  Downloading in the background

3.  Deleting a program - I can't find where to do that!

From the playlist , select the "on ipad" tab. Select a recording and go to "more info". There's a small "delete from iPad" trashcan above the cast and crew.

Downloading in the background would be awesome. I tried loading up my ipad before leaving on vacation and it went to sleep in the middle of the download and has to start again when I wake it. "Looking for GenieGo", it says. It really needs to work like the old GenieGo app in this regard.

Using the scrub bar to ff through commercials is frustrating at best. Please bring back the 30 skip button. :)

Until it's upgraded, when you're downloading a group of programs, start one playing and go take a shower. (or something)

I figured out my first problem with this. When you are in airplane mode the more info button doesn't display. No way to delete things when in airplane mode.

Is anybody having trouble with DAFI ?  Ours just spin on 'Retrieving App Configuration' on both iPads. 

 

We did upgrade to 7.1 yesterday.  PC client is fine.

my DAFI works fine, although I am still on 7.0.6 since I can't update.

And why can't you update?

 

I just deleted the app and re-installed.  Got all the splash screens and then a OOH setup request.  Exiting that it crashed and I'm back to 'Retrieving App configuration'.

 

Something is fubar.

Deleted app, rebooted and re-installed.  Same 'Retrieving App Configuration' spin.  No user / pw.  or splash screens.

DAFI's working fine on my iPad under 7.1. I haven't tried deleting and re-installing, however.
