    Device: iPad3
    Version: iOS 6.1.3

    Issue 1: Lost all previous settings.

    Description: I upgraded the app away from home and it seemed to work well. The first time I used it at home, it took a long time to bring up the playlist and was missing one of my receivers. Then, it crashed and when I restarted it, all me previous module customizations were gone. The app had been reset to default.

    Issue 2: When editing channel lists for modules and in the guide, the "jump to" numbers to the right of the list don't jump to the channel range listed. I can tap on them and they bulge, but nothing else happens.

    I deleted and re-installed the app to correct the hung playlist on iPad4. Of course, lost all prior customization but a small price to pay.

    When HR44-500 is selected, it says the DVR has to be on. . . I can view all HR2x that are in standby.

    There is a settings: account settings option that comes up OFF by default now for this. Had the same issue and later stumbled on this just stomping around in the works.

    Just toggle it to on and it's all good.

    Since the other topic of iPad issues was closed and we were referred here, I wanted to posted that I was still having problems with the Genie showing up on the iPad. It doesn't show up on the list of receivers. I have tried a refresh at www.directv.com/refresh as well as numerous menu->restarts. My VoD works and my receiver shows up as 'Connected to Internet: YES'. All of the sharing options are set to allow. Further, the 'Network Services' are all running and I can see them open on the router under UPNP.

    I have called DirecTV several times and they can't figure out the issue.

    Just noting that although neat looking, the app didn't seem to offer any help on this front.

    Have you tried to re-validate the IP address of your Genie from inside the iPad App?

    Under settings , blue right arrow.. validate.

    I don't see an IP listed under receivers at all. There are no receivers listed to 're-validate'.

    Also, on the "account settings option that comes up OFF by default now for this" -- where is that found? On the receiver?

    New iPad app menu. Select 'settings'; it will open a new menu, select 'account settings'; and you'll be there.

    "Remember Login" is the toggle I described. In the new app after update it defaults to "Off".

    By toggling it to "On" you will not be challenged for password each time you start the app.

    There's no direct streaming support from your DVRs to your iPad. Do you have a GenieGo? If so, you can use the GenieGo client to stream recordings from your DVRs to your iPad. Hopefully "at this time" is an indication that GenieGo capability will eventually be merged into the DirecTV app.

    You have another thread when this same question came about and you said you were able to do this at some point and time. As we all know, in order to watch on your iPad from your DVR you would need the GenieGo device

    Yes. Hopefully at some point, the DAFI will include GenieGO support. But for now and the near future, the GenieGo device is needed to playback recorded shows on mobile devices.

    not exactly true. I have modern marvels recorded on H2 and I can play that recording on my iPad via DAFI however movies and network TV shows are not available. This is what confused me I knew I could play something back but forgot it was only that show so when it didnt work on other shows I thought somehow I was now broken.

    100% true. what is confusing you is that Modern Marvels happens to be available On Demand so is streaming via the interwebs not through the local network have you had the GenieGO
