Why not just use m.directv.com to schedule your recordings? It's fast and easy as hell.

x2....

Also he wont do that because everyone on this board has to share their new best great app idea, that in reality is pure poo....

I totally agree. A DTV app would be great. the current mobile site does not take any advantage of the iPhone's capabilities. Even a specific website for iPhones would be useful. trying to do a DTV scheduled record via the current mobile site is not as easy as it should be. The scrolling channel line up on the non-mobile site is much better and could be adapted for the iPhone.

Then there's the idea that they could make a great app for the iPhone too. One that, when used at home (with a networked receiver) could be used to search the guide, change channels, manage recordings, etc. Basically another interface into your DVR/receiver without having to use the TV remote. This could be useful in SO many different places, especially in commercial establishments with multiple receivers.

wow what a dick. the mobile site is NOT great and there is plenty of potential for a good DTV app to be able to do a lot of things. See my above post. and stop trolling.

Not much of an app....

A really sweet app will not only let you control your TV but it'll let you watch your TV. I have such app and I'm subscribed to DISH Network. I picked up a Sling Adapter from them and this lets me stream all my live programming and DVR recordings onto my iPhone and iPad. No matter where I am as long as I have high-speed internet then I can watch my TV whenever. I'm a gadget geek so I got a job with DISH Network's tech support department, boy am I glad I did otherwise I would be stuck being excited about this lesser app that Direct just barely released.:apple:
