    Not your fault. I didn't think it would do that either.

    New version up in the App Store: 1.10.5

    What's new:
    • Enhanced Social TV module allows you to comment on friends' check-ins and shares and view their history to discover what types of programs they like.
    • New On Demand button on the remote for instant VOD listings on your TV.
    • Miso Sharing removed.

    And what is old: for three versions now audio thru the docking connector is no longer a feature. If this is intentional please advise so I will shut up otherwise, could you please. . .

    Using iPad for longbdurations viewing content live gets an inquiry if one wishes to continue watching on iPad. Selecting yes brings you back to an interface unable to resume full screen. Must exit program an restart to correct. IPad2 latest IOS.

    Minor annoyance, but it would be nice that when new channels are added to the "Live TV Streaming" section they would be inserted among the existing channels in numerical order, as opposed to just lumping them at the end of the list. As it stands now, you need to edit the list and move the new channels to their proper position.

    I have said this before but I wish there was a way to "save" all your info so you can sign out of one account and sign into another without having to enter all your favorites again. Ideally a way to save 2 accounts within the app.

    I agree. However, there is an easier way of sorting the list.

    Scroll to the end of the modules in the 'Home' tab and tap on the edit pane. From there, delete and re-add the Live TV module and it will add all of the available channels in the right order.

    Wow this would of saved me 20 minutes of sorting yesterday. Wish I saw this post, great suggestion!

    One thing that doesn't work with the remote is press and hold commands. My family room H24 has SD outputs feeding a VCR which back feeds my bedroom. Don't watch enough TV in the bedroom for a $6 / month extra box. Plus I can't be in two places at the same time. However on the ipad app I can't press and hold exit to switch between HD / SD. I do have Jensen IR - RF repeaters but they also have a hard time with press and hold commands.

    So another way or button to switch the resolution would be great. That and DVR management (todo, manage series, etc). Plus I can never tell how much hard drive space is used unless I'm in the living room in front of the HR24. Be nice if the ipad (and MrV) playlist showed the usage bar graph like it does on the physical DVR.

    In case folks missed it, I started a 1.11.x discussion thread here.
