After seeing the iPad introduction keynote yesterday I'm wondering/hoping/praying that DirecTV introduces the ability to do remote viewing on the iPad. If the remote viewing is limited to the local network, I don't see how it would be something DTV would want to avoid. But of course it would be even more awesome if you could view anywhere, a la Slingbox. And I'm sure Slingbox will be updating THEIR iPhone client to take advantage of the large iPad screen. But clearly DirecTV (and TiVo for their DirecTivo and stand alone TiVos) are in a position to allow a much more satisfying remote viewing experience by integrating control of the DVR directly into the app rather than relying on IR commands, etc. I'm not optimistic but THIS would be a fantastic direction for DirecTV to go.
