    I'll trust you when you flesh out why there might be pricey contracts signed by DIRECTV® in the first place. Or a cite or two.

    I've noticed an increased number of ads through my phone, which I use in the car. It can get annoying when there are two or three commercials in a row when I'm on a five or ten minute drive, I feel like at that point that I might as well have just turned on the radio.
    I haven't used the Pandora app on Directv in awhile since my livingroom IRD [HR34] doesn't have it yet, so I can't say that I've noticed the increase in ads there.

    Ditto(almost,HR21-100)...41/2 hrs on Saturday...maybe 5 commercials...no popping...no halfways...sounded pretty darn good...better than FM these days with all the ads...and I was one of the first to complain about ads on Pandora when DTV first offered this...overall pretty happy with the free service...:rolleyes:

    Try a double reboot on your HR24 to flush the cache. That has worked for most who had not gotten Pandora to show up after the recent firmware update.

    I find it helpful to add other songs or artists to my custom station, as well as rating each song that comes on with a thumbs up or thumbs down. That way Pandora gets a feel for what I like and don't like and over time is able to provide a wide range of the music I enjoy, even stuff that I've never heard before but still end up liking.

    I used the Directv app for the first time today, while not as great as it is on my media center PC, phone, tablet, smart tv, BD player etc, (the popping between songs was VERY annoying), it was still better than the music channels I pay for with my DTV subscription.

    Buy the subscription to Pandora, it's not that expensive and well worth it since it can be used any where there is an internet connection. I listen to it on my phone in my car or where ever I might be, on my DIRECTV receiver when I'm cleaning my house, and on my computer while I'm gaming. All commercial free!
