You can.. its fully customizable. Just "swipe" the page to the left, and you will see more.
I hope they eventually get to an android 3.0 app since I just got a Xoom two days ago. Nothing again Ipad but I was more impressed with Android 3.0. Again it is very exciting that Directv developed a tablet app finally and it should mean great things for future of tablet apps from Directv.
Awesome!! Wow there's even more stuff. Thanks for the tip!
I was not into the sports thing either, so I understand.
At last! A reason to buy an iPad. Now to see what the new iPads look like and how much the first models drop in price.
Might happen when Android has at least 1/100,000th the number of Tablets out there that Apple does (not counting the $150 chinese junk available that barely function). I'd like to put it on my rooted Nook Color. Unlike Android phones the Android tablets have some catching up to do wrt to market penetration.
Check e-bay too. There will most likely be a lot of them for sale as people trade up to the iPad 2 (like me). BUt mine is going to my wife. I can rarely wrestle it from her hands now.
That functionality alone would cause me to go out this morning and get an iPad, with out it not so much.
My thoughts too.
Wait till the new ones come out in March or April. The prices on the first models should drop greatly. You can buy an iPhone 3 for about $50 now. I don't see any use for the 3G model iPad, the model that works with your router would be good enough for me. 3G kind sucks anyhow.
What do you consider significant penetration? It appears to be >20% at the end of last year with Samsung tablets at the top of that pile. :shrug:
I'm currently planning on a tablet but if I do it will probably be an Android so I'm hoping that it will be available for Android in the near future....I can hope
for the first implementation it rocks. loving it!
Guys, I wanted to thank you all for the messages and posts. This was a real team effort and I appreciate the credit but it really goes to the test team. They were the real "journalists" here, I was just the art director.
Yes, but as the art director you did your usual exceptional job.
The info provided by the testers is exceptional as well and deserving of thanks also, so thanks for all the work guys.
The DirecTV installer plugged my SWM install directly to my Internet connection vs. internally, so this does not work... yet the iPhone app does, as it apparently connects in some other way.
I can fix this, but major FAIL if this wasn't the way things were supposed to be hooked up.
I don't understand why this connects any differently unless they are eventually thinking about streaming, which was a big miss...
Looks great. My only issue is the lack of volume control, either from the TV or an A/V amp. Calling it a "complete remote" or "RC1000" is a bit overstated when it won't do things that current remotes can. There are lots of TVs and AV amps with ethernet control now.
And why can't tablet makers include an IR output?
Just trying to make sure I understand correctly,
If I have 2 DVR's, and whole home viewing, and want to watch a show off the DVR in the other room, I will need to use the regular remote (or my harmony) to do so?
Not that big a deal, but a bit of a bummer if so.
I have to agree a bit with a previous poster. I don't personally see the benefit of introducing another device to control just one tiny part of my A/V equipment, when I have everything already controlled by one remote.
But if it had streaming, i'd be all over it in a heartbeat
That report was misleading, in that most of the Galaxy sales reported were Samsung "selling" them to retailers. actual in home penetration was at that time, and might still be, much lower than those numbers imply. And that is according to Samsung's CEO.
Because it does things well beyond a remote.
Forget the remote control aspect if you don't want to use it. Its an interactive, enhanced viewing guide, with the ability to show you what is on TV and your DVR without interrupting or bring the menu up on the TV. It allows remote scheduling, and has an integrated sports App.
Those things alone are pretty cool. Then the ability to use it as a remote control or automatically jump to items is a bonus.
