    The write up:
    Great write up, I know it takes a lot of work to make such a profesional looking PDF file, so thanks for all the hard work, I for one really enjoyed reading it. Thanks dbstalk

    The Software:
    I love the screen shots and features of the software, I took out my iphone while reading about all the cool stuff only to find out that it only works with Ver 2.2.1 firmware not even 2.2.0 works :( Thats a major problem thats going to keep all the JailBroken iphones from using it. Not sure if im willing to give up all my other apps to have Directv software at this time.


    BTW Jeremy I think there is a connection between AT&T and Directv so thats probably why they chose this platform. Also the Iphone is a lot easier to write stuff for than most of the other mobile OS's

    It's true, the software will not work if you've jailbroken your iPhone. I'm sure that will be no problem for the vast majority of users.

    No problems here with a jailbroken 2.2. This is a great app and much better than using safari.

    I agree. Not worth the trade with m.directv.com working fine as well.

    It Does not work with 2.2.0 the Appstore will not even let you download it, a message comes up saying that you must upgrade to 2.2.1 but I should correct myself, you CAN still use Directv software with a Jailbroken iphone but you must have the latest OS 2.2.1 upgrade. I found out that you have to use Quickpwn firmware that only upgrades the phones OS to 2.2.1 but does not upgrade the Phones BaseBand firmware to the one that normaly comes with 2.2.1 but leaves it at the older version that came with 2.2.0

    If you dont already have OS 2.2.1 this is going to be a lot of work to keep the phone Jailbroken and still have Directv software, is it worth it?? Wish I could try it without going through 2 hours of work.

    This might be worth going through the pain of installing 6.4a on the HR10 and the HDVR2s

    Was looking forward to this app as I love my iPhone but as many others have reported I get a User / Password log in error when attempting to log into the site.

    Oh well.................... :nono2:

    Login is fine on wi-fi. I checked 3G and it didn't work -appears to be an issue trying to connect via 3G.

    Same here. Cannot log in.

    ---UPDATE---

    After doing a reset (holding home and sleep/wake buttons) I am able to log in.

    When doing a reset, wait until the apple appears.

    OK .. I'm late to the game as I was out, but there is no need to reset your phone .. Hopefully it's already back up and running at this point.

    it's different for everyone but the standard advice is always to reboot your Iphone after installing a new app. This one is no different.
    your mileage may vary...

    For what it's worth, I think I've rebooted my phone maybe four times in six months. Adding apps, deleting them, whatever, doesn't matter. The fact is, most crashes or serious glitches are caused by individual troublesome applications. On a Mac you can open up Console and navigate to Log Files -> Crash Reporter -> MobileDevice and find your phone and see which apps have caused the most mischief.

    When I try to log into my Direct TV account I always get the message that the site is unavailable, try later... when I use the app I basically get the same message.. does this happen to anyone else?
