    Set it up to record whatever show is in the guide after the game.

    And the app has "Record if Possible" or "Definitely Record". I always use "Record if Possible" and set it to two DVRs so I don't knock something else out unless it's really important.

    I've been having lots of problems with this app in the past two months. It usually won't complete/confirm the process to scheduling, and it never gets recorded. In fact, out of at least four times I needed to use it in the past two months, I don't think it worked any of those times. Is this app just broken now?

    I just loaded up the new iPhone OS 4.0 beta 3 on both an iPhone 3G and 3GS. On both, the DirecTV app crashes immediately on startup.

    The app isn't broken for me, it works fine. Others have had problems with their DirecTV.com accounts in the past (which this app uses to get the ids of your DVR receivers). A call to DirecTV to get it straightened out has fixed other people's problems in the past. Perhaps that would be something to try.

    Also, I see you installed OS 4. As far as I know, this current version has not been approved to run on that version of the OS. Until a version is released that states it supports OS 4, you can't expect it to function.

    We just upgraded our phones to the Moto Droid and the Android Incredible. I will download this app to see how it works for us.

    DirecTV iPhone app version 1.9.6 now available (after updating to iOS 4.0)
    It says iOS 4.0 compatible & improved reliability.

    I have an iPhone4 running the Directv app (I'm pretty sure I have the latest app since I am not prompted for an update). The sceen comes up with the spinning circle and just hangs. I have rebooted the phone and also toggled the clear login at startup. No luck. I did use the app successfully on my old 3G. Any suggestions appreciated.

    I have the iPhone 4 as well. No issues here. Maybe try deleting the DirecTV app and then reinstall from the app store.

    I just opened up the DirecTV app on my iPhone 4 & it worked with no problems too.
    Are you on wifi, Edge, or 3G?
    On Edge mine takes a long time to fire up but is pretty quick on 3G & very fast to open on wifi.

    I've tried on 3G and wifi. I'll uninstall and reinstall the app. Thanks for the advice.

    if you left an iphone for an android it would not be an upgrade but a downgrade actually

    Doesn't seem to add much, and still no native iPad support :(
