    Directv ipad app

    If any of you have an ipad and directv, check this out: DirecTV iPad App Turns Tablet Into Remote | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

    You can use your ipad to program or control any TV in your house. Very slick, and works very quickly.

    Downloaded it today. Haven't got a chance to use it. Looks f'ing awesome though.

    Re: Directv ipad app

    The only thing I had to do is go setup each dvr to allow an external device to control it. The nice thing is the response time from the app is faster than my IR remote on these older dvr's.

    Re: Directv ipad app

    Dish Network has had one for awhile now. I really like it and the Sling Adapter that they have.

    I think it's nice that DirecTV has brought out something to give their customers a lot more value than what they have now but it's like a $500 remote for all of your TVs in your home. I think DTV is extremely expensive and if someone wants to use this app, they should be given a lot more value. I work and subscribe to DISH Network and I use the DISH Remote Access app and I think it's far more superior in the technology because I can watch live or pre-recorded shows without an issue. It's supported on iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and Android devices. It's free in the App Store and in the Android Market and you can use it any and everywhere you go. I love it! I am always recommending that people check out DISH Network and I am inviting anyone who comes across this post to explore the endless possibilities with DISH Network and experience a value unseen by any other TV provider!

    I already have a remote.

    Can it start a car in my driveway while I am in Europe on business? Now that would be a handy app that I would use all the time.

    Re: Directv ipad app

    Do you have to connect your receivers to the internet somehow? I have not done that yet. Does it require "professional installation"?

    Re: Directv ipad app

    I looked into this - I have an hd receiver but it does not have wireless Internet. If I bought an USB Internet adapter, it would work except that my network is secure and there is no way to plug in the password on my receiver.

    I could lease the latest hd receiver with a wireless receiver with a cash outlay of just $200... No thanks.
