Nice! I can imagine it would eat through a data plan pretty quick lol
It does indeed fail.
Not looking to start a flame war as to whether it's right or wrong, or how to do it, just what does jailbreaking the iPad get you?
Works fine on all generations of iPad!
The main thing it gets me is an app called iUsers which allows me to have multiple user accounts with separate user data for each app. Now the kid won't screw up progress on some of my games
And it looks like it might be possible to fake out the DirecTV app with a Cydia app called xCon.
Call me dense but I'm confused. The documentation says it aggregates the "togo" apps but it also seems to imply that I should be able to watch LiveTV outside of my home. When I try to do that, I get the error message about not being able to find an active DVR. Am I missing something or just misunderstanding?
Now, if only there were options that didn't require a subscription, other than Audience.
Love it will be utilizing it this weekend so I can watch on the new iPad hd
I'm at my office and I just installed the new version of the app on the iPad. I can't watch any video at all. It says I need to be on the same WiFi network as my HD DVR.
EDIT: OK, I can watch stuff from the Audience network, but that's it.
I am having the same issue.
Select the "watch on ipad" button on the bottom right menu bar and you will see what is available when away from your home network
And of course congrats and thanks to Earl and the gang at DirecTV for this awesome app! It works as smoothly as the best iPad apps I've seen.
Been checking it out on my new iPad. Can't wait to get home and try it!. Thanks Stuart! Looks good!
That is what I have been doing and I still get that error that other's have reported.
xCon does work, but it hasn't been updated to work with this brand new version. I guess we will have to wait a few days.
It works on both
I just tethered my iPad to my phone and was watching over 3G on T-mobile but for those who have it built into the iPad, can't speak for them.
I need to hook up my HD DVR to my home wi fi. Whats the best adapter to do this?
Edit: Ok I see the wireless device directv sells.
Does this allow streaming of recorded content?
One problem I see is if I task swap from the App it stops streaming. Be nice if it had feature to keep streaming so I can listen to the channel while surfing net
Another great First Look! The implementation here is great but I really think they jumped the gun by launching it without more content. They are marketing it somewhat deceptively by saying you can watch what you get at home anywhere. The reality is that broad statement is very limited (to the premium channels and Audience). I think it was a mistake because having so much excluded causes lots of confusion - which this thread illustrates - and creates a negative experience that many will try, be disappointed, and never try again. I really hope they can add more channels in the future quickly - especially for live streaming outside the home. Additionally, the Nomad app hasn't been updated for a long time - doesn't it make sense to merge this app with the nomad app so you could watch recorded shows on your iPad too through the directv app - that way everything is in one, more intuitive app?
Anyone help here?
When I'm on wifi at home, it says no DVRs connected.. But my DVR has an IP and I can ping it. I've got 2 HR23s.
