    I had the same experience. . . I recorded 'The Pianist' and missed the first few minutes. In searching for a replay, DAFI showed the copy on my HR34 and said I could watch it on the iPad.

    But in playing it, it was a Showtime on demand playback.

    Very nice, particularly since you can't play VOD on GenieGo.

    The MLB network is missing from iPad live tv channel list, but the MLB alt channel is there. Any ideas.

    Glad I saw this! Having to reenter my password has been annoying me since I first installed the update. Was about to uninstall/reiinstall but searched here first. If there is any way to change the default or notify folks more prominently of this, I suggest (to the directv-ipad overlords) they do that. An option would be to add a 'remain logged in' checkbox or help-message on the login screen.

    If you are having problems with DIRECTV App for iPad version 2.0.12, please send crash logs via PM to me (Stuart Sweet).

    When the app crashes, please sync your iPad before uninstalling and reinstalling. Then get the crash logs after you have sync'ed.

    Here's a link to tell you how to get crash logs from iTunes. http://www.ondemandworld.com/how-to-find-crash-logs/

    No issues after the first login (1st login took a bit). Currently I'm OOH - also I'm on iPad 1 running 5.0.1

    I am loving this app update! It is so much easier to find On Demand content and push it to one of my receivers. I've been loading "Orphan Black" on to 1 of my receivers and then watching later. It's great!

    On the downside, the "my networks" doesn't seem to be working correctly. When I select that option, HBO & Starz still show up in the list even though I do not currently subscribe to those. There is also a network - Karaoke (which must have songs with the words across the bottom and sounds fun for a party) - which shows up in my networks but will not download songs to my receivers. Not sure if this is a paid channel or not. I haven't found much about it (I haven't looked much either...).

    I still have the recordings - got a complete one. . . but a search now only shows upcoming on 553/554.

    Don't know if it was a feature or not!

    I would like the search to be a little more context driven . . if you're in Playlist, search the playlist first.

    The iPad app does ask for log in info more often in this version.

    Also the guide data is wrong on the iPad and iPhone app for what I'm watching now. It says Great Lakes Shipwrecks is on Science but its really a show about potential alien contact. The guide data on the HR24 is correct.

    I'm having issues getting the remote control to come up, it takes about 5 trys. The remote also goes away if I exit out of and go back into the app.

    EDIT: Just noticed that when I exit out of the app and then go back into it it searches for my receivers. It finally finds the right one, but then I have to go in and select remote control again.

    Anyone else having issues with this?

    Didn't see a thread for Issues/Discussion for v2.0.x for the iPad app, so figured I'd post here.

    Issue: PlayList Will Not Load
    When trying to load up the PlayList, it hangs on the Loading PlayList screen with a green checkmark next to the name of my Family Room receiver. The app is not hung though as I can continue on with other functions in the app. Attached is a screen shot.

    Issue: Search for Upcoming Shows Has No Results
    Realized that I had missed a few episodes of Continuum, so I decided to use the app to select them to record. When I start to type into the search for Continuum, I get the autocomplete which lists it so I selected it. I then get a screen that says No Results. I checked on the DVR and there are plenty of listings. I've attached screen shots from the iPad.

    Note: I did a search for Continuum as a Keyword and after selecting a match for TV Show and then for the show of Continuum, I got listings for Continuum. Not sure why the Continuum (TV Show) selection did not work.

    The Panthers / Steelers preseason game wasn't listed in Completed or in My Teams. (Panthers) The USC / UNC college game was listed in both.

    I going to post that NFL games in Sports only list the ST channels for recording. You have to go to the guide to record other channels. (other than Thursday's game)

    Update looks good.

    The HR44 is the only DVR that gives the message that it has to be on to see 'Currently watching'.
