I've encountered problems with this app pretty much every time I've attempted to use it. One time I attempted to skip a repeating timer, in order to record a one time airing of another show. I then attempted to set a later recording for the skipped timer, only to find out that my receiver marked the second recording as duplicate, despite the skipped original. I then found out that the app doesn't recognize duplicate recordings, so I couldn't restore it. Dish Tech Support even admitted that it was a design flaw. Four months later, and it hasn't been fixed. Recently, I attempted to set a recording, only for it to set the timer for 6:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. That's right, a recording set for the same start and end time. What's worse, the app wouldn't let me delete the timer, that it incorrectly set, because it recognized that it was incorrectly set. Additionally, I attempted to delete another timer, that I didn't want, only to discover that the timer reappeared. I tried to stop the recording, only to find that there was no easy option for that. I ended up calling Tech Support again, only to find out, once again, that they knew less about the app than I did. After being told that I would have to have a Sling Adapter (for additional charge) to do what I wanted, I figured out how to do it on my own. The app is poorly designed, causes errors, and Dish Tech Support is pretty much useless in helping. Stay away. I only wish that iTunes allows zero stars.
Doesn't work well over wifi
Update: for most but not all shows the skip forward/back and time slider do not work and start the recording over.
We paid the $50 to add the Sling adapter to our original Hopper. Over wifi from within our house HD video doesn't work and we must use SQ. Even that stutters and skips frequently on my iPhone 5s. Skipping back and forward or using the slider is frustrating since it often doesn't work or stutters terribly afterward. My guess is that it maybe uses the Internet connection even for local access... if so video quality would be highly dependent on a fast Internet speed, and DSL (AT&T u-Verse) upload speed is insufficient. Kinda disappointed. Maybe video would work better from an external location since that would use half the bandwidth.
I am out in the spa watching television. The product does exactly what it was intended to do. One caveat. You do need a speedy internet connection. But even before I upgraded my internet it worked just fine watching in standard def instead of HD.
One other thing. Dish's support staff are truly world class. Some of the most helpful out there. Like "Apple" good. Like "stay on the phone with you until it works" good.
I have had Dish satellite for about four years now and will never ever go back to cable.
