    No, I don't have a vested interest. I don't own stock in D* and could care less about how they program their stuff. The fact is that I understand why they did it.

    Personally I don't have any sympathy for those that cry about an app not working because they jailbreak their device. You made your choice and D* made theirs. You can either deal with it or move on (which apparently you have).

    No, but your site is looked over by D*, you have members on payroll with D* or are given FREE items by D*

    Do you personally get free stuff form D* or Dish? Then you have a nested interest. People post something here negative about D* or Dish, then MODS can pull it? Same thing, vested interest of some kind in D*

    So yes, you do and I understand that and why your opinions and the MODS will reflect this. To say you don't seems a bit absurd. But this message boar, is a privately ran company and its your choice.

    We will agree to disagree and I am done with the JB subject.

    Love the app. Got it up and running on my JB'd iPad too. Sneaky DirecTv.....but not sneaky enough.

    I agree. Devs want the MOST people running their apps as possible. I know 3 dev a a little, as they are customers on my business.

    I hope we are not dreaming! It would be a great addition to all the software/hardware DirecTV has put out, Connected Home, DirecTV2PC, Nomad, iPad app. This would just complete the circle (along with android and win mobile apps) And I believe make a lot of people happy.

    Dreaming is, as I am inferring from you avatar, the Fish playing good enough that we continue to believe they might win a game (refer to first 54 minutes of Sunday's game on 10/23/11), but bad enough that we get the first pick in the draft (refer to end of Sunday's game on 10/23/11) to get someone other than Luck (because the Dolphins don't draft quarterbacks - see their draft history prior to and ever since Marnio's retirement).

    It's tough being a Dolphin fan lately.

    I don't feel sorry for the people that are JB. Get over it because you get alot of free apps that most honest people pay for and that is the main reason they do it is to get free **** that most people pay for.

    1. There is already a work around for JB'd iPads and the DirecTv app. So this is no longer an issue.

    2. The difference here is nobody is stealing the DirecTv app. It is Free. Also, a JB'd device + DirecTv app won't allow you to receive channels you aren't authorized to have in the first place. So DirecTv is doing this simply to make other parties happy.

    If there is a will, there is a way. So there will never be an application that JB'd device users won't be able to use. Eventually there is a work around.

    Sorry, that is a false statement and clearly your opinion. I JB so i can get silly things like better notifications, multiple signatures with my emails, and stuff like that. Free Apps? You mean the ones that the JB developers won't charge for? Just to have my phone react the way I choose to?

    I never heard of using the JB to get free Apple apps, sorry. I pay for any app that Apple offers. I have over 90 PAID apps on my phone.

    99% of JB phones are for customizations, not piracy.

    While I agree that a lot of people use it form customization (including me), I think the 99% is a little high. I'd say it is closer to 50/50 for those who are strictly customizing vs customizing/DL'n free apps. It is just too easy to do.

    I understand the lack of Mac support because of Market Share and the cost involved. As much as I would love and need DIRECTV2PC to have a Mac version, I understand this not coming.

    A little shocked that NOMAD does not have mac support, while having support for iOS. This should have come from day 1. How many iOS users are locked out of NOMAD use. Unless it works in BOOT CAMP or other VM.

    Yes, the Dolphins stink, but they will get 1-2 wins at some point.

    I am on the "Suck for Luck Train," but I wnat at least 1 win! :D

    So although the new Ipad app has the benefit of not using a tuner from an H or HR device, why can't they just make a DirecTV2Ipad app? Surely the Ipad could handle that, and it would eliminate the whole internet stream issue (and yes, while they are at it, they should add live TV (based on your subscription) to both the DirecTV2Ipad and DirecTV2PC applications).

    Can't you change the subnet mask on the wireless access to a /22 (255.255.254.0) to include .0 and .1 on the same subnet?

    Networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX) would really be a plus. It would save me from my Christmas-time honey-do of installing a TV in the bathroom. Not looking forward to that install.

    I agree. Even just local channels would be awesome but there is probably a licensing issue there.
