    Try to delete & reinstall the app...then disconnect/reconnect the iPhone from your wifi. That's what I had to do to get it to work tonight

    In fact I did some testing to simulate a VPN (without using a VPN) and if the latency deviates too much then the streaming video will stop and a popup will say "Network Reachability Changed Your network will need to be scanned again to find your receiver. (OK)."

    You can watch "everywhere" you are on the same network as your DVR - basically in your house - unless you have HBO and don't want to use their superior app.

    Since I am running JellyBean on my Galaxy Note, can you please post how you were about to get the iOS app to run? Thanks!

    I have deleted and reinstalled the app on my iphone, after updating to the new ios 6. I also unplugged my receivers for a couple of hours to reset them. After the reset of the receivers, I've deleted the app twice and reinstalled it, but still cannot get it to find my receivers. I have 2 HR20-700's on whole home network. I have also tried to inut the IP address every time the auto detect fails.

    Any other suggestions? Very frustrating!

    I think JB phone = Jailbroken iPhone, not Jelly Bean (although I am jealous).

    The updated app is nice, however what I want is to watch DVR'd items on iOS or OS X. Am I missing this functionality somewhere?

    Did you disconnect/reconnect your iPhone from the wifi?

    I have done everything multiple times,including the on/off WiFi. Also in different order, just to see. Just won't find/validate receiver. Tried manually putting in IP address multiple times. Nothing seems to make it go

    You need a nomad to do that.

    Or even better than that, a Slingbox

    Why doesn't the app include directv remote functionality, like the iPad one?

    Better depends on the use. For some, Slingbox is a better option, for others, Nomad.

    I have installed the new app and it will work in guest mode , but when I log in it says we're experiencing technical difficulties after I try to open the app.

    My wife got her iPhone 5 on Friday. The DirecTV and Sunday Ticket apps both fail to utilize the whole screen. There is black all around the picture. On top, bottom, left, and right sides. Since I am anti-Apple, I don't know how to tell her to zoom the image to fill the screen when watching video. How do you do this?

    Thanks!

    I don't think you can. When they where talking about the new phone, they basically said it would do this for most things, and that the developers will have to update their apps. I'd bet on DirecTV and everyone else too, getting a update out pretty quick for this.
