Great Tv

I really like Directv overall. But I downloaded the new app for my iPhone and iPad on my iPhone the app does not work keeps telling me I don't have Internet service tells me to keep putting in My Internet ID address. Sometimes it'll show my receivers and then it only let me put in to digit channel not a three digit channel it won't let me. Then I file use it on the TV Guide it will stay on TV guy in the app won't work no more other times I can't get it to work at all on my iPhone. Everything else on my iPhone works perfectly fine nothing wrong with my iPhone the old app work perfect on my iPhone. The new app works great on my iPad! I hope you come out with a new update for the new app for iPhones. Once again I have no problems with the old app on my iPhone. Now I can't use it when I'm out side of the home or inside to record programs if we forget to do before we leave the house.

Bring the DirecTV logo back!

The update to the app is nice and updates the look throughout the app. My only complaint with the new update is the app icon. The DirecTV text looks bad being shrunken down to the size of an app icon. The old icon was just fine, so bring it back or just update the look a little!

Also, when recording a series it would be great if we could decide whether to keep just five episodes or all episodes recorded.

Otherwise it's a great app and works really well! I definitely recommend it if you have DirecTV service. Being able to remote record makes life so much easier, and it's even faster than using the TV!

Remote widget doesn’t work

The remote functionality, which worked fine with the previous version, has been removed and replaced with a widget — which would be fine if it worked. The widget only displays a message that no internet connected receivers could be found. All of my receivers are in indeed connected to the internet, and the remote on the previous version of the DirecTV app works just fine.

Also, please allow the ability to paste into the login credentials fields. Some folks use password managers along with randomly generated passwords that are difficult to enter manually. Or better yet, consider integration with password managers — my vote is for integration with 1Password.
