This app is also working fine and dandy with my Nexus 7 as well.
Definitely not intuitive! Thanks.
Having gone through it for about 2-3 minutes...I found it exceptionally intuitive.
It all comes down to taking a short amount of time to go thorugh the setup/configuration options, and then the rest was quite easy to understand.
Then again...I work with mobile apps all the time.
Working fine on my TF201. I'm just sad that the on demand stuff (HBO, Etc.) is missing from it.
Maybe they'll add that in a future update.
Can a moderator confirm this sideload is safe?
I doubt they will add HBO streaming. Why do it? HBOGO is already available for DTV subs. HBOGO is already an excellent app.
Sideloads are never 100% safe. You take your chances....
Found an issue with the initial release. After loading the software on a Motorola Xoom, one of the first things I found was that list of receivers was incomplete. I have 6 active boxes (H21-100, H21-200, H25-500, 2 HR21-700 & HR34-700) but the list on the "Select Your Receiver" did not list the HR34. I checked my DirecTV account and all boxes were there. I tried changing Location names of a few receivers and these changes were reflected in the android app. I then selected circle with an arrow head thinking that this would "refresh" the receiver list. Did not seem to do anything. The last receiver listed (5th) was listed in a room (LIVING ROOM) that had a red button (could not access on network) and after selecting this one, I got to a screen with an empty IP address. I put in the IP addr of the HR34 and this refreshed the whole list and I had 6 receivers listed and they all matched the info in my DirecTV acct. Don't know if the circle with the arrowhead is supposed to refresh the list or not but it doesn't appear that it does. I presume that this is the correct forum to report this.
Edit: Sideloaded on Nexus 7 and found a similiar Issue. It initially only showed 4 of my 6 receivers in the Select Receiver button. 2 of them had the red button and after I supplied the IP addr it now showed 5 of the six (the box labeled Office was still missing). What is odd is the DVR missing in the Select Receiver shows up when you get to the list of DVR's to select to record to. It clearly has the DVR in it's table of devices but doesn't show up. FYI.
pfft! you take a bigger chance rooting your tablet with whatever flavor O/S you have to try and get google play and whatever else to work..
Places like 3 other sites I visit --> let you at least DL & try the apk files if they work HOORAY if not SO be it..if it weren't for those wonderful sites on my kindle fire HD 7 I'd be denied..just gimme the apk and I'll try it!! heh..it works or it does not..plain & simple..
Dolphin Browser !! (you kidding? think i'm gonna use Silk? HAH!)
FireFox : Mozilla
Google Maps (yes it works via Wi fi, just not turn by turn that u need gps for)
NY Times (free version)
all of these shouldn't exist on a Kindle !!
and a couple of top video players not in the Amazon Store either..
as well as some games
In the short time I've had android, never have I seen an O/S segregate ITSELF on what you can or cannot play..feels like if I order a pizza pie the baker takes away 2 slices and says I cannot have them but I can have the rest of the pie..silly
and by the way the Direct TV tablet app doesn't work on Kindle Fire HD 7 via 4.0 ICS..non rooted tablet..install of the APK works but it crashes when you launch it
Works great on my Nexus 10. Is there anyway to get On-Demand stuff to play on it?
Is this the nomad app that's been coming soon for over a year?
It's the DirecTV app, much like the one that comes in other flavors.
The nomad Android app is coming soon - before you can recite the names of all the State Capitals and Presidents in alphabetical order.
Agreed. Rooting and sideloading is not 100% safe. Have you ever thought "perhaps" there is a good reason the DTV APP is not yet available on some Tablets? "Perhaps" DTV has determined there are too many bugs in those tablets . "Perhaps" they do not want to deal with support on those tablets.
I have little doubt that the DTV app will support Tabs like the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire. The fact that it is not yet available tells me that DTV thinks it is not yet ready for release.......
That could be never.
Did you have any issues getting your receivers registered? I am unable to get them registered automatically and also unable to enter the IP's manually. I verified that receivers are visible on the network by scanning for them with the DirecTV Remote+ app.
Works fine on the Lenovo Ideapad running Jellybean 4.1
You cant watch recordings with this can you?
I discussed a problem with this app in an earlier post with the app having a problem finding all the Receivers/DVRs in my network. I have the app running on a Xoom and on a Nexus 7 (side loaded). On both tablets, it was quirky shortly after I loaded the app. On the Xoom, I originally had only 4 devices show but after a bit of tweaking, all 6 boxes did show up. In my tweaking, I had looked at both places that the list of "receivers" show up. During this initial period, I also looked at the receiver list in the older DirecTV (version 2.4.0) app and they were out of sync with each other. Example: In the new app, my HR34 did not show in the 'Select your Receiver' button on front screen but did show in the 'Receiver Control' under the 'gear' icon.
On the Nexus 7 I had a bit more problem. It also initially showed only 4 receivers but there were different ones missing. It would not find the 2 HR21's and when it went to build the Playlist (one of the HR21's was in the list of receivers, one was not at this time), it would only find the recordings on the HR34. The list of receivers under Receiver Control listed an IP address that doesn't exist on any box in the network and was outside of the DHCP range. I checked the active address list in my router and this IP didn't show up there either. The only thing that appeared to do something constructive on my side was after changing location name in the DirecTV account equipment in the DirecTV website, I saw twice that the list had become closer to correct (I tried changing location names to see if this would propagate to the tablets).
After all this tweaking, the list on both tablets is correct and seems to be holding. Since there isn't an Issue thread for this app, this seemed the correct place to record what had happened. Appears to me that app appears to query the boxes in your local network as well as the equipment description from the DirecTV website and something isn't getting tied together first try.
BTW, the six 'receivers' are 2 H21's, 2 HR21's, 1 H25 and 1 HR34.
No, you can't.
