Any word on an iPad version?
Got the new app today, works great but it seems the area that you press on the touchscreen is much narrower before.
I am refering to the seach by channel, date and time, Movies and Order a movie or event now. There is plenty of room on the screen to make the area bigger. Maybe next time. I still love being able to schedule a recording with my phone.
working good on my droid x..
Well, my Droid kept Spinning but now it is working and I scheduled Jay Leno's Crazy Cars and it worked.
ditto ... working great on my DROID X .. (PS, love this phone!)
EVO running Fresh 126.96.36.199, got the update from the market place, but my links no longer work as others have stated. After a reboot, links are fine.
On HTC Desire running 2.2, I can confirm the issue with link not working after update and having to reboot the phone to get it to work.
I would also appreciate larger buttons on the main screen for my fat fingers to tap on.
Install was not clean. As others have posted, the install did not delete the old version completely so screen shows 2 icons. One of course is dead.
Second, the general search area for shows has been moved. I now have to press the menu button on my HTC Hero to get the general search screen. Makes it bad if you know the name of a show but not much else. New version requires an additional step the old version did not.
The app still has random placement of HD channels (some before SD, some after SD) and no way to hide SD duplicates.
Ditto on that... the iPhone version has the option to hide SD duplicates... why not on Android? For a 2.0 release this should have been a priority to bring some sort of parity to the versions.
Not only that, but choosing the SD version of a channel doesn't make it record that version. I'm in the temporarily gimped config of having no b-band converters on the HR21-700 D* sent me to replace a dead HR10-250, because they didn't send any b-band converters along with it. (They're 'in the mail' now.)
I tried 3 different test recordings on that box with this app, choosing the SD version each time, and each time the HD version tried, but failed to record.
It looks a little prettier, but I don't see any new functionality.
I wish they would have the SEARCH button on the main screen rather than have to press the Menu button to get to Search.
Also, not sure if I screwed it up, but it seems like I tried to Record something and it didn't happen (never go the recording that I attempted to set). I'll have to test this a bit more to see if it was user error.
Seems the new app runs smoother on my EVO than the last version.
Downloaded fine to my new Droid Pro. Thanks for this!
Works well on my Incredible. Kind of a worthles update if you ask me. It seems like all they did was make the movies search options on the main screen. Guess they are trying to get people to watch all of the new HD channels they added this year, since they were almost ALL PPV!
I just scheduled to record a series (Pillars of the earth). I'll check my DVR this eve too see if it got scheduled...
Works great on my ATT Captivate
My Blackberry app is still 1.9.5. Will they release an update for it too at some point?
It works great on my ATT Captivate. I just got and only got to use the old version once.
No complaints so far. I will update after I have more time to use the new app.
