You need DirecTV's Nomad to transfer your DVR recordings to your iPad. There's currently no way to "stream" DVR recordings to your iPad, only a networked PC (using the DirecTV2PC software).
The OP has the iPad app but wants to view recordings on the iPad. Only the nomad or sling box like device allows this at the moment.no1hedberg said:Check out the directv everywhere app for iPad. If I understand you correctly I think it does what you want to do.
